Comprised of four established improvising musicians from Bristol & Bath, We Are Leif deftly span the balance of jazz sensibilities with the groove and sound world more associated with Nu-Soul, R'n'B and Down Tempo genres.
Louise Victoria's voice sits comfortably alongside the company of Gretchen Parlato, Jill Scott and Becca Stevens, with main writing credits shared between herself and drummer Mark Whitlam (Clare Teal, Jason Rebello). Also including bassist Chris Jones (Ruarri Joseph, Marc Ford) & keyboard player, Dale Hambridge (Joss Stone, Beverley Knight), the band are steadily gaining more recognition, with a number of flagship jazz festivals under their belt in 2017 including Cheltenham Jazz Festival (UK) and North Sea Jazz's sister festival, So What's Next? (Eindhoven , NL). Their debut album is due to be released in April.
