About Leah Zeger:
Violinist and vocalist Leah Zeger comes from a family of professional symphony musicians. At 19 years old, while still in college, Zeger won a tenured position in the first violin section of the Austin Symphony Orchestra, becoming the youngest member on staff. While in the Austin Symphony, Zeger played with soloists including Pinchas Zukerman, Leila Josefowitz, Yo Yo Ma, and Elvis Costello.
She has appeared on the television show, Austin City Limits with both Pearl Jam and Willie Nelson. From 2006-07, she performed as the lead singer/violinist/dancer with the international world-touring fiddle concert sensation Barrage across Europe, Asia, and North and South America.
In 2007, she appeared as a soloist at the Eric Clapton Crossroads Blues Festival in Chicago alongside prominent artists such as Alison Krauss, John Mayer, and Sheryl Crow.
Most recently, Leah became a member of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, performed with Miley Cyrus on her live unplugged show, recorded and produced her second album, “Pour Moi”, produced and starred in her first major music video “The Man I Love”, and toured with five-time Grammy-winner, Cee Lo Green as his solo violinist. She served as concertmaster and solo violinist with Annie Lennox on all of her music videos for the “Nostalgia” album and on Lennox’ PBS Great Performances special.
The Leah Zeger Quartet performs regularly in the greater Los Angeles area, and her album Pour Moi is a perfect demonstration of her virtuosity on the violin, her unique and sophisticated vocal technique, and her multi-cultural approach to music.
