LeAnna Eden & The Garden Of New Wave Alternative Soul Having formed the band in early 2016, LeAnna Eden & The Garden Of (LETGO) has been a whirlwind force through out the music scene in Charlotte, NC. According to the Full Cover Story written by Mark Kemp, Senior Editor of Creative Loafing, “Will 2017 be LeAnna Eden’s Breakthrough Year?” only time will tell, but it has started on a level matched by no other artist in the Charlotte Market. Whether opening for major bands & musicians such as Emily King, Black Joe Lewis; or headlining Visulite Theatre; or organizing the FIRST Black Alternative Music Festival there has been no stopping LeAnna Eden in 2017. LeAnna Eden & The Garden Of’s EP release and digital publishing now gives fans outside of the Charlotte, NC a way to connect with the band. The self-titled EP can be found on all major digital sites such as Spotify, Itunes and TIDAL. “It's impossible to gauge how much impact Eden will make on the Charlotte music scene in 2017, but our prediction is that it will be felt far and wide.” Mark Kemp, Editor Creative Loafing "Whether strumming solo or playing with her supple, genre-jumping band The Garden Of, singer-songwriter LeAnna Eden is a force to be reckoned with. The self taught guitarist weaves her spell with a grab bag of influences ranging from neo-soul to alt-rock, coupling the fierce intelligence of Ani DiFranco with the soulful swing of Joan Armatrading. But what really puts this young artist over are her songs. From the uplifting and defiant "Protest Song" to the whirlpooling and aspirational "If There's Nothing More," Eden's alluring and deceptively smooth tunes connect with the sharp bite of truth."

Iliad The band displays confidence in their ability to construct songs with jazz progressions and progressive structures, as well as using ambient elements to accompany the guitar and keyboard solos.
