Leila Jane and The Heal­ers will be per­form­ing at the Sea­mus En­nis Arts Cen­tre on Satur­day. Leila Jane em­braces the magic of the Delta Blues and com­bines it with the sweet-sound­ing tones of 50’s rock’n’roll and coun­try mu­sic with a mod­ern twist. Roy Or­bi­son, Wanda Jackson and Robert John­son are among her in­flu­ences. Her raw and heart­felt lyrics display a deep emo­tional in­tel­li­gence rarely found in some­one of her youthful years. Fol­low­ing a per­for­mance at the Cam­bridge Folk Fes­ti­val in 2013 Leila Jane met her group of band mem­bers who later would be­come ‘The Heal­ers’. Leila Jane & The Heal­ers are a 5-piece ensem­ble, tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from artists such as Ray Charles, Patsy Cline, Elvis and Dusty Spring­field. Leila is the pri­mary song­writer in the band and to­gether they cre­ate a sound which is cap­ti­vat­ing and emo­tive. These skilled mu­si­cians have a highly ex­cit­ing and fresh ap­proach to a mu­sic that is sweetly rem­i­nis­cent of a 50’s and 60’s style. To­gether they have al­ready made head­way in the Ir­ish mu­sic scene, ap­pear­ing at fes­ti­vals such as Elec­tric Pic­nic and Lon­gi­tude and were se­lected by ‘The Last Mixed Tape’ as one of the “must see acts” at the Body & Soul Fes­ti­val.
