Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Keisha “LeAnn” Wright inherited the musical spirit seemingly common in many Jamaicans. Keisha emanates a natural and undying love for music, singing and songwriting. This became evident to her family and friends during her school years when Keisha became involved in any activity that involved singing, music and the performing arts. This tenacious trend followed with her throughout her school life and beyond.
Her love continued to intensify and soon became a passion as after leaving University Keisha found simple avenues to continue singing and performing. She joined the Jamaican Folk Group in 2001 during which time they recorded their second Folk Album. Keisha mostly enjoys singing Gospel/Spirituals, Pop, RnB and soulful music. Although her musical interest spans genres such as Reggae R&B and Jazz, her intention is to synchronize these to spell out her beliefs about life and its teachings in a soul capturing style. Her biggest influences include Patti Labelle, Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey, Luther Vandross, Kenneth ‘Baby Face” Edmunds, Mary J. Blige, Lady Saw, Faith Evans, Kelly Price, Ann Nesby, Yolanda Adams among others.
Keisha’s dream of becoming a recording artiste actually took shape after pursuing graduate studies when music became a key feature of her daily life. Since her completion of graduate studies in 2004, Keisha made steady moves towards honing a musical career. In 2006 she was selected to collaborate with Beenie Man for a Cover of “Stan” for the Covers Album which is currently available on iTunes and has done well in Japan. Keisha continues taking steps to sharpen her songwriting and vocal skills when she enrolled at the Edna Manley College for the Visual and Performing Arts as a part- time student in 2007 and began making strides to improving her network in the music industry. Despite holding a 9-5 job, Keisha has continued singing in cabaret and Jazz performances including, Jazz in the Gardens and Christopher’s Jazz Café, JoJo’s, as well as for private audiences. Keisha also continues to work on studio recordings.
Keisha whose stage name is LeAnn, has since completed several singles, and intends to create a space for her soulful and exciting musical flavor in the market. Keisha’s melodious and soulful voice will captivate her audience while taking them though soothing melodies.
