Folk diviner. Dream reviver. Music delicately awe-inspiring.

Leah Senior silences audiences with her other-worldly presence and unique lyricism, twirling gently in its own form of psych-folk revival. The Melbourne-based folk artist creates fragile but effortlessly nimble melodies that demonstrate a clarity of thought and studied discipline beyond her years, her songs evoke the familiar and the peculiar, the poetic and the plain.

Pretty Faces sat proudly on the Flightless Records roster of 2017 and her distinctive voice also featured on King Gizzard’s apocalyptic album Murder of The Universe, as the omnipresent female narrator.

“Leah Senior is an amazing folk singer, very, very talented, and nothing like King Gizz’s music at all. Her songs are equally terrifying, joyous, sad and exciting. We get chills watching her perform” – King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard.

Second album Pretty Faces is an exploration of personal liberation acquired through loss and the breaking of expectations on oneself. The songs embody a sense of outsider freedom epitomised in the last track Loser “You’re a loser like me, pay the price for feeling free”.

Leah Senior is currently recording her third album and is set to release new music late 2018.
