Léanie Kaleido

Folk-rock poppet Léanie Kaleido’s lullaby voice, quirky lyrics and infectious melodies are winning airplay on BBC6 Music and stations across the globe, particularly since the release of her sumptuous second album, ‘Quicksands & Shadows’.

Mellow, wistful and sometimes slightly warped, Léanie’s songs range from the philosophical and melancholic, to acerbic little ditties about exploding breast implants, murderous witches, practical footwear and recurring dreams.

In a review of the Kent/Sussex-based songwriter’s début album ‘Karamelién’, Bluesbunny Music Reviews noted ‘echoes of the more ethereal parts of the British folk movement in the early seventies’ and sums up Léanie’s style by observing that its ‘sweet and charming presentation, however, is merely a veneer for some dark and dryly amusing lyrics on the subject of life and love.’

‘Quicksands & Shadows’ was recorded at home and co-produced with Léanie’s husband Joolz Dunkley. Both albums are available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and most online music stores.
