Leah Shaw, Live in Concert!


Musical artist Leah Shaw’s debut full-length album, Play Beautifully, will be released Friday, July 30th. She returns this summer to perform at the Iredell Arts Council as part of the Key Concert Series.
Her album is a sonic exploration of love, grief, loss, healing and self-exploration dedicated to her mother’s memory. Composed on piano and guitar and recorded with the addition of orchestral and electronic elements, Play Beautifully was co-produced by Shaw and Teo Blake.  
The album’s title is a phrase that Shaw’s mother would say to her children when they were dropped off for their music lessons, “Play beautifully.” Shaw’s songs and perspective will resonate with a world recovering from a tumultuous moment in time.
