Award-Winning Kids' Musician Joanie Leeds Makes Washington Debut

Award-winning kids' musician Joanie Leeds will bring a little bit of Brooklyn to the Seattle area when she makes her Washington debut with two free, fun-filled, all-ages Brooklyn Baby! shows. Joanie Leeds will first perform at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, July 17 as part of the City of Bonney Lake Kids Club Series at Allan Yorke Park, 7302 West Tapps Highway, Bonney Lake, WA.

Then at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, July 19 Joanie will give a "Wednesday Picnic Performance" for kids as part of the Kent Summer Concert Series in Town Square Plaza, 2nd Avenue and Harrison Street, Kent, WA. This show is presented by the Kent Arts Commission and Kent Parks, Recreation, and Community Services.

Joanie Leeds' solo performances will be high energy, interactive experiences from start to finish, showcasing an array of genre-hopping tunes from her new album, Brooklyn Baby!

In addition to such Brooklyn-esque songs as "Ferry Nice","Shayne Punim," "By Myself," and "Library Book," Joanie Leeds promises to play plenty of fan favorites like her crazy "Freeze Dance," "I Wanna Be Green," and "Joanie's Top 10 Rock and Roll Songs," which features choruses parents will recognize from classic rock songs like "Satisfaction," "Paradise City, and "Hey Jude."

Gifted with a soulful, "rock solid" voice that ranges from low and bluesy to high, light, and breezy, Joanie Leeds is an exceptionally versatile artist who brings serious musicianship to the table right alongside a terrific sense of fun and fashion. Says SiriusXM's Kids Place Live host Mindy Thomas, "Joanie Leeds is that cool babysitter who would let you try on her lip gloss once your mom left the house. You idolized her, and your mom knew she could trust her. That's Joanie. Only she's also likely to completely ROCK THE ROOF OFF YOUR HOUSE!"

Joanie Leeds has performed in dozens of cities nationwide at such prominent venues as The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, The Smithsonian, the CMAs, the Hang Out Festival, Symphony Space, Wolf Trap, and LA's Skirball Center.

Highly praised in People magazine, Parents Magazine, The New York Times and The Washington Post, Joanie Leeds' original kids' music won first place in the USA Songwriting Competition, as well as winning an Independent Music Award, Parents' Choice Gold Award, NAPPA Gold Award, and Family Choice Award. Joanie was a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the International Songwriting Competition.
