New Music From Léonie Gray

Since making her debut by winning several provincial singing competitions in the early 2000s, Léonie Gray has had a long and varied career that has included a lead role in the musical Symbiose; opening slots for well-known artists including Beyries, France d’Amour, Karim Ouellet, Milk & Bones, and Morcheeba; performances at the Montréal International Jazz Festival, at Mtélus, on the CBC Stage and at the Santa-Térésa Festival, and at The Festival International de Jazz de Montréal. She released her most recent album, Who?, in April 2022, and is now preparing her second album for release.

About “My Body,” the second advance single from the upcoming album, Gray says, “I was in the studio with my dear friend and pianist Anne-Sophie Coiteux, she always carries snacks in case she gets hungry and she said ‘when I’m too hungry I feel like my body is too small’ and I thought it was a very interesting take on a relatable human experience and decided to dive deeper into the subject. I’ve had a weird relationship with my body and with food, throughout my life before reaching acceptance so I wanted this song to be similar to a mantra as well as a reminder.” Track follows lead single “OMG,” released last year, which Gray says “a letter to the auto destructive part of myself which grew stronger over the years as a teen and during adulthood.”
