Low Leaf

Low Leaf's music doesn't belong to any specific place or point in time. It doesn't fall under a strictly defined genre. She's trained in piano and self-taught in the harp. She plays with electronics, producing beats that can drive soothing melodies. Her voice often bears a jazz influence, but, on some songs, it's layered with other sounds to appear as if it's a not-quite human texture.
