Leah Capelle released her Giants EP in late September and a stand out track is “Settle Down”. The song approaches hard topics like the hook up culture amongst millennial and isolation experienced with feeling lonely. The arrangement of “Settle Down” by Leah Capelle is both innovative and classic. Featuring an atmospheric first half of the song that is similar to modern pop in many ways while also maintaining and authentic and organic sound as it unfolds at 2:40 into an epic jam that features an incredible guitar solo by Will Wu which tastefully uses an octave pedal. Leah Capelle and her band should be very proud of their newest release. Please see a short attached artist biography below.
“Leah Capelle is an alternative/pop/rock artist from Chicago. She began performing and studying music at a young age through the Chicago School of Professional Singing, North Shore Music Institute, and Berklee College of Music before moving to Los Angeles to pursue her music full time. She is also currently pursuing a B.S. in Music Business at USC’s Thornton School of Music. Once settled in LA, Capelle partnered with Grammy winning producer Jeff Bova (Album of the Year, Celine Dion, Falling into You) to release her self-titled debut EP in 2015. Capelle released a collection of three singles (collectively titled ‘Joshua’) at the beginning of 2017, which was her second project working with Bova. Skope Magazine says: “Sometimes a little goes a long way… Despite the apparent brevity of such a collection, Capelle encompasses vast musically imaginative worlds in this trio of songs thanks to two crucial factors above all others – the songwriting talent involved and, naturally, her vocal quality… Though she has technique to burn thanks to a stellar musical education and background, Capelle doesn’t sing like a technician. She has a freshness and spontaneity, instead, capable of capturing the spirit of any song with skill and grace. Leah Capelle is a rare talent.”
The highly anticipated follow-up ‘giants’ EP delves deeply into her personal struggles with self-identity, relationships, depression, anxiety, and pressures from without and within. In Capelle’s own words: “I want people who listen to my music to feel like they know me. I lay everything out on the table – I don’t ever write music that doesn’t relate to either what I’m going through or what my loved ones experience – so I deeply want to develop closeness with my fans.” Vents Magazine says: “Capelle has a well-honed sense for getting to the heart of what a particular performance demands with no nonsense style aiming to realize the composition’s potential. It’s a potent approach…” ”
