Leanne Pearson is an independent force to be reckoned with. She shows that there are no limits to an Independent Canadian Country Girl.
Leanne took home Female Artist Of The Year at the 2018 Manitoba Country Music Awards. She is currently nominated for 6 awards at the 2019 MCMA’s. Including Fans’ Choice which you can vote for by clicking here!
Recently, “I Wanna Be More” and “Hot Pursuit” cracked the Top 100 at Canadian Country Radio in 2018 and 2019. Both songs are off Leanne’s first full length album “Pull It Off”.
Written solely by Leanne, “I Wanna Be More” embodies everything she is as an artist and a person; independent, fun, bubbly, quirky and a bit different! Best described as a beachy vibe with a bouncy melody, “I Wanna Be More” is a blend of Country and Pop, with a tasteful twist of Reggae. The feel good music video will have you grinning ear to ear. Cute, genuine, flirty and playful! The music video was played on major networks across the U.S., including Heartland and The Country Network.
Check out the music video for her latest single, Hot Pursuit, below!
