Leila Lopez has been compared to the likes of Ani Difranco and Fiona Apple. Her original finger picking style and poetic lyrics have captivated listeners both locally and nationally.
Leila grew up in Tucson Arizona, surrounded by a musical family and slowly began to cultivate a passion towards music at an early age. Encouraged by her family, Leila began to play Guitar when she was eight years old, and eventually moved on to learn the bass guitar, piano, cello, drums, banjo and mandolin.
Leila's music was recognized in 2008 during the Tucson Area Music Awards (TAMMIES) receiving an award for best female vocalist, and again in 2009 winning in both the female vocalist category, as well as an award for best folk artist.
In 2010 she won best female vocalist, best songwriter as well as best new release for her newest album Fault Lines.
Leila has been working on a new album and playing out extensively in Tucson Arizona and the surrounding area.
