Leela James grew up in a home where her father had a huge collection of '60s and '70s Soul and R&Brecords, and she set her sights on a professional singing career in the late 1990's.
"I want my music to be more than just good music. I would like to challenge what is considered popular R&B music today. I want it to bring back good lyrics and real singing that touch people in their hearts and the melodies that stick to their ribs and nourish the soul." --Leela James
