Lea Anderson

Lea Anderson is a singer, songwriter and flutist. Through her own rhythm and blues, Lea aims to create an intimate connection between herself and anyone who has come in contact with her fluid soprano sound. Her music is a timeless entity providing us with sounds enlaced with heartfelt melodies, strong vocals and lyrics that tell the story of her past heartbreaks, current happiness, new found self-love, and hopes for equality. She is always equipped with a flute — handed down to her by her mother. Born in Washington, D.C., and residing in New York, Lea is a member of the Actors’ Equity Association and has performed in several shows including “Hair”, “Little Shop of Horrors”, “Ragtime” and “Smokey Joe’s Cafe”. Now a staple of New York’s live music scene, she has played venues from The Apollo, Rockwood Music Hall, Joe’s Pub at the Public Theatre, The Duplex, and Duane Park. Through hip-hop, she has mastered the art of storytelling and worked with underground hip-hop favorites like J. Rawls and Uni-G. Her music has also been compared to the sounds of Whitney Houston and Anita Baker with reminisces of Aaliyah. In 2019, Lea independently released her first album. Her LP was recorded and mastered by Grammy-nominated and recipient of 16 Billboard Awards, D-Moet. She has collaborated with A-list figures such as Asante Amin, Jessica Betts, and world-renowned guitarist, Marcus Machado. Lea is also a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (ΑΚΑ).
