"Okay cool...My name is LEAH KAIRE otherwise known as L Bull...born in Caracas, Venezuela, brought up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil moved to Tokyo, Japan at age 11. Four years later moved to Hong Kong...then back and forth from the US and Europe. I spent a year at an emotional growth academy at age 16 because from age 14 was spending more of my time singing in clubs than studying for my classes that was a trip...lol..."
(Follow the jump for the rest of Kaire's story in her own words.)
"Graduated High School from College du Leman in Geneva, Switzerland then
went off to London College of Fashion for design illustration...my
dream was to go to Broadway or study music or theatre. I didn't realize
that I had to audition a year in advance so I took the next best thing
FASHION. The next year I got a degree in jazz vocals and took some acting
courses....along with singing all over London it was a blast...
I moved to MIA the night b4 911...woke up scared shitless so that
was the end of London for a minute. Got involved quickly with the
music and club scene...used to sing live over DJ JP Rigaud at Nikkis
back in the day when it was Tommy Poochs' joint. Soon after met a
funky cat with a fro named Tony mostly known as Smurfio...got on the
mike with him playing keys and we bonded instantly...Once he told me he
had practice up by me so he picked me up and it happened to be the
Marleys, that's how that day I met Richie Marley and Bagga...
Bagga was the
musical director...that family includin Mother Booker, god bless her,
took me in like their own...they are an awsome soulful strong family
that have gone thru a lot. Pearl, Bob's sister, is a flower full of
talent which I look forward to working with in the future. I met
Cargo and Rally, Rally...two of the tracks are on my album...I gotta say
the music that flows from that house is blessed by the gifted Bagga
Tracks thats a hard core mofo....
I am independent like the U S of A...and since that independence my life is movin faster than ever...
Session work is like takin on a character of a play...you get into it,
once you feel it you become it, and the right sound comes out into each
individual song and style...I've worked from doing house tracks, dubbing voices for commercials, to doing backing vocals for Mother B and Richie Marley and working with
hooks for rappers and reggaeton artists...along with many different
generas...it's good to be versityle in this biz...
Performing live...that's been all me since day one lol...my first
present was a fisher price microphone and recorder...i've been in
theatre since age two...singing in jazz and reggae bands since age 14
and singing over house music DJ's since I was in my teens too...My first
record to hit the radio was in London when I worked with DJ Ray Keith
from the drum n bass scene...track called "There's Somethin Out there"
check it out...Sang with Bernard Perty in London jammed to the
blues...had a band with Julious Boones...worked with Suenalo...the
Marleys...Jose Elias...many well known DJs' and a bunch of talented
people world wide...the beautiful thing about music is that we are
one...it doesn't discriminate...
People can hear some my tracks from myspace...www.myspace.com/leahkaire...very soon it will be on I tunes and cd baby....
I'm working two music videos from my BUTTERFLY album...I'm also working on some top secret stuff too...lol...
One things for sure with focus and persistance all things are
possilbe...Shout out to Mom and Dad, the Bull Brothers...all the people
I mentioned above...Ish Whatever, Lucky Larry, DL, DQ, Peaches and the
rest of the city ya'll taught me to be stronger and to go for my dreams
for Tatoo for singing me that song to find my way back home you know
what I'm talking about, Ace to Felix and Micheal the true players on my
team and everybody thats got true genuine care for me man I love
