Leah Martin-Brown's Bio:
From humble beginnings, Leah spent her early teenage years practicing her craft by playing in bars and clubs around Brisbane and the Gold Coast under the moniker 'Lilly Rouge'. By 17 she had been accepted into Griffith University's prestigious Bachelor of Popular Music where she was able to fine tune her burgeoning talents. It was during this time that she began to seriously pursue her career as a professional songwriter and musician, working with producer Stuart Stuart (Sheppard) on heavier material for 'Lilly Rouge', which had been a solo, acoustic project up until that point.
After completing her degree at the end of 2011 Leah packed her bags and moved to Melbourne to do some musical soul searching. Inspired by the vibrance of the city she was able to pen over thirty new songs enabling her to record three EP's for 'Lilly Rouge' and head out on two National tours which included spots supporting 'Everclear' and 'Presidents of the United States' as well as a set at the once coveted 'Big Day Out' festival.
In 2014, after piquing the interest of an American based A&R company, Leah once again packed her bags and made the move to Los Angeles, California where she is still based to this day. It was there she started up her rock and roll band 'Evol Walks' who have now gone on to tour worldwide and score a management deal with Rick Sales (Slayer, Ghost, Mastodon).
