Leah Coloff

 Artist's Website

Leah Coloff is a cellist and singer of loud, soft, punk, rock, pretty, crazy songs. One reviewer said, "She does everything she can think of with that cello, short of setting it on fire. Her voice is gorgeous, and she sings her decidedly offbeat songs with a sort of dark abandon." Leah veered off the road of rigorous traditional training after earning a degree in cello performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and doing a stint of graduate school at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. Over the years, Leah has played with many wonderful musicians including David Bowie, Michael Cerveris, Mark Mulcahy, Rufus Wainwright, Linda Thompson, and Lou Reed. You can also see her playing around town with her band Lucibel Crater.
