Michal Leah might be only 19 years old, but the Chicago-born soul-pop songwriter and multi-instrumentalist sings with the wisdom, range, and intuition of an artist with decades’ more experience. Born to a highly musical family, the first-generation American singer grew up listening to a range of artists, both classic and contemporary: Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra, Daniel Caesar, and Billie Eilish.
Since growing her reach on TikTok, where hundreds of thousands of followers connect with Michal’s gentle and vulnerable compositions on a daily basis, she has spent the last couple of years flying to and from Nashville (plus doing Zoom sessions) penning new material with songwriters such as Andrew Tufano, Stephen Barnes, and Tofer Brown, among others. She just hit the road on her first major tour opening for Eloise. Between the tour and plans to release at least two more new studio projects, Michal is most definitely a superstar on the rise.
