Louise’s voice bears comparison with Becca Stevens, Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, whilst retaining a classic Bristol sound, steeped in the history of bands like Portishead and Massive Attack.
All four band members are established jazz musicians and between them have chalked up artistsic credits with the likes of Andy Sheppard and Iain Ballamy, Joss Stone, Beverley Knight, Jason Rebello and Clare Teal.
Louise Victoria – vocals
Mark Whitlam- drums & electronics
Dale Hambridge – piano
Chris Jones – bass
“Blending their improv Jazz chops with neo-soul and grown up R‘n’B, and then giving it a smoky, backstreet club vibe borrowed from Trip Hop and unmistakably Bristolian, We Are Leif have created something that is reassuringly familiar yet excitingly new” – Tap the Feed
