Don’t be fooled by Leela James’ diminutive size as she’s packed with power vocals and has a dynamic, deep voice. She earned a business degree from Cal State University and is also a former track star. James was in her late teens when she set her sights on a professional career in singing. She initially had to struggle a lot as her contract with RuffNation Records fell through after the label was acquired by Warner. After nearly four years she was able to produce an album with them and in 2005 released “A Change Is Gonna Come”. The hardships she faced on the onset of her career became the overall theme of the album.
“A Change Is Gonna Come” captured the diverse influences in Leela’s life and ranged from blues to gospel to classic soul. Leela James enjoyed the best of everything for her first album as she had a great executive producer in Commissioner Gordon and stars like Kanye West, Wyclef Jean, Raphael Saadiq, James Poysner, Mtume and Chucky Thompson also collaborated on the venture. The album released to favorable reviews by the critics and included deep romantic numbers like When You Love Someone. James' expressive voice captured the soul of the song quite beautifully. Other impressive tracks were Music and the bluesy single My Joy. James' voice was also compared to Chaka Khan and Aretha Franklin but many claimed that it had her unique touch.
Her follow-up album didn’t come for another three years and when “Let's Do It Again” hit the shelves, it was worth the wait by her fans. Featuring classic soul covers, it peaked at 11th position on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart. The album was a huge hit and earned her “Female Vocalist of the Year” honor at the 2009 SoulTracks Readers' Choice Awards. With an award in hand, Leela James signed a contract with Stax Records and in 2010 treated the fans to her third album, “My Soul”. It made it to 7th spot on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart and included popular numbers like Party All Night, I Ain't New To This and Mr. Incredible - Ms. Unforgettable which also featured Raheem DeVaughn.
In 2012, Leela James once again signed with Shanachie Records and began working on her a tribute album to the great Etta James. In “Loving You More... In the Spirit of Etta James” James has paid homage to the legend, who is also her major inspiration. With the album she has introduced Etta to the new generation and covered her lesser known hits. Leela James’ latest album came out in 2014 and is called “Fall For You”. It includes gracefully performed soulful singles that have captured James’ sultry voice. The album comprises of acclaimed tracks like Who's Gonna Love You More, Say That and Set Me Free. You now have the chance to enjoy them live as she makes way to the stage along with Ledisi and Raheem DeVaughn. Leela James tickets are not to be missed this season.
