by Abigail Charpentier - Jul 16, 2019

Alt singer-songwriter Leah Capelle can attest to one thing - 'every songwriter is more than just a voice.' In her guest blog on The Talkhouse, the Chicago-bred/LA-based artist questions: 'What is our responsibility as artists? Is it to provide a much needed break from the heaviness of the news? Is it to simply provide entertainment, to become one more distraction from the daily responsibilities of life? Is it to be the voice of our whole generation, or to be just a voice for those who can't put their feelings into words?' Capelle has proven that she's got it all, a song for everyone and any human experience - whether you're looking for the perfect car karaoke jam or a much needed reminder that you are alive and you are beautiful.
