“Leigh’s ‘You’ve Never Been to North Dakota’ soothes like Cole Porter, timelessly lyrical both literally and vocally.” –Raoul Hernandez, Austin Chronicle

Brennen Leigh is an American songwriter, guitar player, mandolin player and singer whose to-the-point storytelling style has elevated her to cult icon status in Europe, Scandinavia, across the United States, South America and the United Kingdom. Her songs have been recorded by Lee Ann Womack, Rodney Crowell, Sunny Sweeney, Charley Crockett, and many others. As renowned for her musicianship as for her writing, it’s easy to see how Leigh caught the ear of greats like Guy Clark, who colorfully endorsed her flatpicking: “Brennen Leigh plays guitar like a motherfucker,” and David Olney, who described her writing as “tender, violent, sentimental, foolish and wise, she is always Brennen. Confident and at ease with herself, without being a jerk about it.”

“A story-telling poet, landscape painter, passionate observer of the human condition and a cultural preservationist.” – Rodney Crowell

“Brennen is as cool as they come. I think this album really showcases that. The writing, musicality, arrangements, production, but mostly how much fun it is! If you don’t wanna start two stepping to this one, you’re probably dead.” – Colter Wall

Brennen Leigh’s Obsessed with the West. (And that’s a good thing.) 

“I’ve been obsessed with western swing music since I was a kid and it’s always been an influence. My records in the past have ranged from bluegrass to country music to folk, but I’d never fully explored swing until now.” So says genre-busting Fargo-born, Austinincubated, Nashville resident Brennen Leigh, whose new collaboration with the kings of modern-day western swing, Asleep at the Wheel, Obsessed with the West (Signature Sounds, out May 6th, 2022) is a showcase not just for The Wheel or Bob Wills fans, but for anyone who’s ever curled up with Lefty Frizzell, Billie Holiday, Willie Nelson or even Louis Armstrong.  

“Brennen will carry the torch for REAL roots American music for her generation, and she’s the best one to do it in my opinion” – Ray Benson
