ALL THINGS RUSH
NEW WORLD WOMAN
RUSH COVERS ALBUM CAMPAIGN
Leoni successfully launched a KICKSTARTER campaign raising over £5K in funds to cover the production costs of her acoustic album of reinvented RUSH covers. Created alone in her bedroom with one microphone and a guitar, this album has already been given some attention from the likes of MetalTalk and newspapers up and down the country, including praise from Planet Rock Radio host Darren Redick.
New World Woman features two special guests and has been produced by Steve Brown who runs RUSHFEST Scotland, alongside playing guitar in Moving Pictures, RUSH Tribute UK, with whom Leoni regularly supports with her acoustic set of Rush covers.
A range of Limited Edition Merch Bundles are up for grabs - to support Leoni head to the store shop to pre-order Vinyl, CD's and make sure to listen to the single 'Tears' , the opening track of the album.
Songs for Neil - VOL 3
In 2020, Leoni joined lead vocalist and bassist from Moving Pictures UK Rush Tribute band John Power, along with his son, Nick, to perform and record the classic Rush tune "Time Stand Still" which was added to the first volume of "Songs for Neil" - a tribute album to the late drummer and lyricist of Rush, Neil Peart. After returning to Rush Eucon and RushFest Scotland earlier this year and taking the stage with just an acoustic guitar and voice, Leoni was asked to record her version of Kid Gloves that went down a storm with the Rush fans, and this track has been added to Volume 3, the double vinyl Tribute album ‘Songs for Neil’ in honour of his memory.
"It’s been such a pleasure working with the Rush community over the years, and after performing on volume one, I was ecstatic to be invited back to record my take on such a classic track, with thanks to the incredibly talented Nick Andrew for the recording and production! A huge thank you to Steve Brown and everyone who has helped out for your hard work in putting this together. I’m sure the professor would be grinning from ear to ear."
Over the years, £78k has been raised and donated to different cancer charities. To listen to Leoni's version of "Kid Gloves" among many great tributes, you can order yours here:
