Leela James focuses on what makes an undeniable star — talent, drive, and an unforgettable voice. Those powers are reflected on her upcoming fourth studio album and a new single “Say That,” her sultry duet with Anthony Hamilton. What sets Ms. James apart is her fearless approach to making music. She’s transparent, and reminds her audience of what it is to be human – to love, to regret, and to dream. Though James is on the slow, steady burn towards musical success, it’s hardly her sole focus. She’s taken the past several years to cultivate a fulfilling home life.
