Leanna Crawford's passion for music has seemingly always been a part of who she is. "Leanna sings more than she talks!" is something Leanna's mom and dad would say as she was growing up on the tiny island of Camano in northwestern Washington.
Leanna points to a mission trip to Haiti in 2012 where she felt God spoke to her, calling her into music ministry, specifically reaching and speaking into the lives of young women. Since this trip, Leanna has been striving to do just that. Leanna’s hard work began to truly take shape when she won Praise106.5’s Music Search (2013) with her song, "Moment by Moment," produced by Dove Award winning producer, Ed Cash. Over the next few years, Leanna capitalized on opportunities to open for artists such as Jars of Clay, Audio Adrenaline and singing the "National Anthem" for a sold out crowd at a Pentatonix concert.
After receiving her Music Business degree from Northwest University (Kirkland, Washington), Leanna moved to Nashville, TN to pursue her calling fulltime. Captured by her sound, Grammy Nominated & Dove Award winner Matthew West began working with her in an artist development capacity, and she was most recently signed as the first female artist to Story House Collective’s roster. Continuing to develop her song writing & performance skills, Leanna is actively songwriting around town and touring on a regular basis with artists such as Michael W. Smith, Matthew West, Jeremy Camp, Tenth Avenue North, Matt Maher, Plumb & Jordan Feliz, most recently joining the Roadshow line-up for the Christmas and Spring 2019 runs.
Leanna is grateful for where God has brought her and is looking forward to the journey ahead, singing, performing and writing songs to bring glory to Him.
