SMOOTH, SAVVY and ECLECTICALLY SPOKEN
CHRISTIN LEONNA was born in Concord,NC and was raised in Oakland,CA, her music is a mix of r&b, soul and alternative rock tied together with a dash of raspy-ish/smooth flowing, heart felt vocals. She delivers a shock wave of soulful melodies and gifted jazzy lyrical content by way of her Neo-soul sound. Her experience in the music world as an artist has held strong and is ever evolving, She started recording at the age of 15 while living with her Aunt in Milledgeville,GA as a vocalist in a girls group with local high school friends, later transitioning back to her home town Oakland,Ca she decided to seek out opportunities on her own as a background vocalist, she found luck with Street Savvy Ent. which allowed her to be exposed to working with the vast array of Bay area artist......
