Leanne Pearson is an independent force to be reckoned with. She shows that there are no limits to an Independent Canadian Country Girl.

Leanne has been described by industry folk as level-headed, sweet, funny, quirky, a bit different and very talented. She has a positive attitude and an infectious smile that brightens any room she enters. This 31-year-old country rocker walks on stage with a pretty dress, cowboy boots and a big smile, then shatters your expectations as she tears up the stage with her edgy stage presence.

Leanne took home Music Video Of The Year for "Hot Pursuit" and Album Of The Year for "Pull It Off" at the 2019 Manitoba Country Music Awards. Leanne also took home Female Artist Of The Year at the 2018 Manitoba Country Music Awards.

Not only has she had 3 Top 100 songs at Canadian Country Radio, one of her first singles, “Get Outta My Heart”, hit Top 50; with CMT adding the quirky music video.

In 2019, Leanne and her music were featured on an episode of the HGTV show Property Brothers. The entire episode features Leanne and her now husband, Jordan, buying and renovating their home. The episode spotlights Leanne’s music career and her album “Pull It Off”. You can watch the episode here in Canada, or check for upcoming airings in the U.S. here.

Leanne is very hands on with her music videos, and says that creating music videos is one of her favourite things to do! She often edits, co-edits, and co-produces her music videos. The music video for "I Wanna Be More" is Part 1 of a music video series, and was played on major networks across the U.S., including Heartland and The Country Network. "Get Outta My Heart" debuted on CMT. And of course, the video for "Hot Pursuit" won Music Video Of The Year in 2019!

Leanne grew up watching live DVDs of classics like Eric Clapton, John Cougar Mellencamp, The Eagles and The Rolling Stones. She knew at a young age that she was going to be on stage and often used the living room as a place to perform for family and friends. She first sang at the age of 4, singing "Tomorrow" from the musical, Annie. She joined a music theatre group at the age of 7 and was in countless musicals for many years. She played a variety of rolls from Young Nala in The Lion King, to Cosette in Les Miserable, to Lefou in Beauty And The Beast, and Sandy in Grease. Leanne wrote her first song at the age of 10. She picked up the guitar shortly after, at age 12, and taught herself how to play.
