Leigh claims that all her songs are working spells. As listeners dive into her new EP, entitled, Who Can You Trust, Leigh sheds a little light on her invigorating experience: “Writing and recording the EP Who Can You Trust has been possibly the most magical, psychedelic experience of my life, taking me on a journey of self-transformation that I couldn’t possibly have anticipated at its outset. I had also set an intention at the start of the year to hear from previous relationships and undo all the fear programming that a slew of betrayals, abandonment and sexual assaults had left me with.”
The EP opens up with the title-track, “Who Can You Trust” with its great mysterious sound and enigmatic quality. The dark sound gives off an ominous vibe with Leigh’s passionate vocals harkening to a haunting vibe and dreamy cadence.

Leigh’s vocals incorporate an added layer of darker cadences with grooves that are spellbinding, unleashing an enthralling, haunting, and ominous approach.
