The modern folk music of The Leah Ray Mendez Trio is both organic and earthy in its heart-centered and homegrown California sound. Their songs connect the romance of our inner spirit with imagery of natural landscapes in a poetic and intimate manner. Driven by the time-tested and classic rock combination of drums, guitar, and bass, Leah Ray Mendez and her band blend the past and future into the present with beautifully rich vocals, self-revealing lyrics, syncopated percussion, droning harmonium, and ethereally plucked harp. The Leah Ray Mendez Trio includes: Leah Ray Mendez (vocals/guitar/harmonium/harp), Mauricio Mendez (bass/mandolin), and Beau Silver (percussion/electronics).
“Leah’s new EP release, All Must Grow, is a creative folk music masterpiece that should be respected as such. Songs like “Now” and the title track, “All Must Grow”, are perfect examples of why Leah deserves to be celebrated as a top indie folk artist.”
