Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 19, 2008
From candy apple lips to pleated miniskirts to side-propped berets, sixteen-year-old Lea Marie has a style of her own in a sea of recording artists. But style alone is not the element that continues to ignite interest from some of the most knowledgeable professionals in the music industry. "Lea Marie's got it all - the voice, the songs, and the look," states Jason Blume, an industry veteran and songwriter for artists such as Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys. "I've worked with countless songwriters and have rarely found any who show as much talent and promise..."
Trained in dance at three years old and classical piano and guitar since the age of 10, Lea Marie advanced quickly and was labeled a musical prodigy before her career even began. Today she is a singer, songwriter, and one of the youngest producers in the business. On May 20, 2008, she will share her talent worldwide with the release of her self-titled debut, "Lea Marie." Five of the album's tracks, "World of Wonders," "Your Brother's Girl," "The Player," "Alex," and "Memories," are currently available for preview on Lea Marie's website and her MySpace and YouTube pages. The single, "World Of Wonders," is currently debuting across several internet channels including Facebook, Reverb Nation, Imeem, Pure Volume and YouTube.
The encouraging response is partially due to Lea Marie's review by Music Connection Magazine. In October 2007, the publication named "World of Wonders" and "Your Brother's Girl" the "#1 Pop Demo of 2007." "Hard to imagine a package that's tighter than this one," wrote Music Connection. "In every way, 16-year-old (Lea) Marie's music and visual presentation are commercially viable."
For Lea Marie, positive feedback and career-building reviews are simply the results of a lifetime of hard work. "Music has always been a part of me," says Lea Marie. "I've been a singer from the time I could walk." The performer's talent was initially recognized in 2001 when, at 8 years old, Lea Marie was chosen for the role of Shirley Temple and danced alongside tap-legend Gregory Hines in Showtime Network's feature film, "Bojangles." One year later, Lea Marie appeared in the starring role of Baby Jane for the world premiere of the musical, "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?"
This year, Lea Marie is set to make her mark as a viable asset to the music industry. In a business so fiercely competitive, "Lea Marie's talent and work ethic put her at the top of my list of teen singer/songwriters most likely to succeed," states John Braheny, author of "The Craft and Business of Songwriting." Fortunately, Lea Marie seems to have it all figured out... and she has the accolades to prove it.
