My guest for this episode is Dariann Leigh. She is described as red carpet glam and camo in a tree stand, big city beauty with small town humility.
“As a kid,” Leigh says, “I remember closing my eyes, plugging my headphones in and listening to tracks that ended up being the theme songs to my daydreams. I want to be that artist for someone else.”
Here’s what people are saying about Dariann’s voice and stage presence.
“Big voice! “I book anthems singers all year long, Dariann Leigh is the best-hands down!!!” –Jon Praska GM of CJHL Norskies
Stage presence and vocals will have you melting! Wonderful to work with!! –Jeff Kroll, Marshall County Talent Fair Board
We spoke during the holiday season and Dariann was looking forward to celebrating family. In this conversation we talk about her newest songs, pursuits in pop among country artists, creating a sound, songwriting and journaling, documenting lyrics & hooks, how theater has influenced her, being a solo artist, her many media features, her new year release strategy and much more.
I hope you enjoy our conversation.
