Led by the songwriting team of vocalist Louise Victoria and drummer, Mark Whitlam, We Are Leif deftly span the balance of jazz sensibilities with the groove and sound world more associated with Neo-Soul, R'n'B and Down Tempo genres. Louise's voice sits comfortably alongside the company of Gretchen Parlato and Becca Stevens. Musically there are nods in the direction of Erykah Badu and Jill Scott whilst retaining a classic Bristol sound, steeped in the history of bands like Portishead, Massive Attack and Lamb. The band are steadily gaining recognition in the UK, having already appeared in a number of prestigious jazz festivals including Cheltenham, Manchester, Stroud and Bristol. With Jazz FM firmly behind the band and their debut album just released in September 2018, We Are Leif are charging forward as part of the new jazz generation.
