Leoni Jane Kennedy is a Blackpool born, Guildford based singer-songwriter, often described as ‘haunting’ with very intricate guitar melodies and riffs, achieving a new alternative rock sound with her up and coming band. Since winning the ‘Freddie Mercury’ Scholarship to attend her university, Leoni has begun to build her career as a musician around the Guildford / London area with her band backing her for gigs in bigger venues, some of which include supporting KT Tunstall with Josh Gleaves at Wembley Park for International Busking Day. The band have worked on a seven-song album and their single ‘Life Like This’ with renowned producer of Mötorhead and Uriah Heep, John Gallen.
“ When I judged ‘Rock The House’ Under 19’s National competition in London, this 13 year old certainly grabbed my attention and completely blew me away with her talent! Fast forward two years and a video of Leoni covering a prog rock song by ‘Rush’ got 17,000 hits in 48 hours via Planet Rock’s website. Acoustic or electric, solo or with a band, Leoni definitely has a bright future! ” – Paul Anthony, Planet Rock Radio –
