With three well-received releases under her belt ( Of Earth & Angels , Otherworld  and Kings & Queens ), LEAH is currently working on her upcoming, currently untitled album featuring many of the players above, in addition to former Delain drummer Sander Zoer and Barend Courbois of Blind Guardian. LEAH‘s music places the listener in a world of fantasy, magic, history and everything in between.
While fast at work on said record, LEAH enjoys trying her hand at other musical endeavors and covers.LEAH‘s most recent cover comes in the form of the main theme, “The Dragonborn Comes”, from the wildly popular open world action role-playing video game Skyrim of The Elder Scrolls series.

“As you know I’ve been writing a brand new Celtic metal album due out this fall,” says LEAH.
“I was looking for inspiration and tried reading some books, but never found my muse, until my fans recommended I start playing Skyrim. So I did, and I really ran with some of those themes in my songwriting! Not only did the storyline inspire me, but the soundtrack itself is epic, as you already know. I ended up getting distracted and thought to myself, ‘Hmm… I wonder what it would sound like if I LEAH-fied the Dragonborn theme song?’ I decided to try it and see how it turned out for fun. I sent it over to my producer in Germany and he really liked my version, so I decided to release it for you! I hope you like it, and I hope the song stays true enough for The Elder Scrolls fans, while also giving a new feminine spin on it!”
