February 12th, 2013 – Boston producer, pianist, and singer/songwriter Kerry Leva has cemented her path into the dynamic ranks of the EDM world with a trio of original tracks, ‘ Four Eight Two’, ‘The Way Out is Through’, and ‘No Strings Attached’, and remix of Stefan Anions ‘Cosmonaut’.
Gloomy, minimalist and quite danceable, this electronic adventure bring to the surface emotions over the beats and a tasty dose of melodies and mysteries.
She said: “I’m inspired by so many different artists, namely Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, Tool…. I started teaching myself various NIN and Radiohead songs on the piano, since I had played from a young age. When I was about to graduate high school, my dad bought me a Roland XP30 synthesizer, and I started messing around with the presets on it…I’ve always loved composing music, so I started by remixing some tracks (including some on which I was a featured vocalist), and then spent the bulk of 2012 producing as much as I could.”
Kerry Leva is an electronic music producer, singer/songwriter, and pianist from Boston. In her early years, Kerry was often writing solo piano pieces inspired by the works of Vince Guaraldi and George Winston, but later went on to study Music Synthesis at Berklee College of Music. It was during that time that she developed a love for electronic music, and shortly thereafter began collaborating as a vocalist on releases such as ‘Anywhere With You Is Home’ (with Matt Lange), ‘Memorial (You Were Loved)’ (with Ad Brown), and, most recently and notably, ‘In And Out Of Phase’ (with Andrew Bayer and Matt Lange).
Where many EDM vocalists are content to focus on their singing careers, Kerry broke through as a prolific producer in her own rite, with her remix of ‘As The Rain Falls’ (with Ad Brown and Matt Lange) earning support from Above & Beyond and other EDM notables. The end of 2012 brought the release of Kerry’s first solo EP, ‘Let It Fade,’ which has been supported by Blake Jarrell , among others.
With a voice often called ‘angelic’ and a production style often referred to as ‘pristine,’ ‘lush,’ and full of attention to detail, Kerry certainly is an artist to watch in 2013, as she continues to push boundaries as both a producer and writer, with several EPs to be released later in the year, ranging from ambient to EDM to pop.
With a prolific production schedule set for 2013, Kerry Leva is certain to become a force in the EDM community, her multiple artistic perspectives pushing the genre in dramatic and innovative directions.
