Biography

Leigh is a composer, pianist, vocalist, and music producer whose early jazz influences of Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, George Shearing, Frank Sinatra, and Sergio Mendes set her on a strong path of clean, crisp jazz sounds with traditional instrumentation and extraordinary song forms. Classically trained, her deep romantic roots found in the music of Brahms, Debussy, & Gershwin led to her true love of timeless styles of Bill Evans & Thelonius Monk. An evening of jazz with Leigh Sutherlin takes you on a journey of soulful vocals, edgy piano solos, bop, cool, Brazilian, Latin, and original jazz. A graduate of the esteemed Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, Leigh has a long list of music direction credits to her name in education and musical theatre.
