Growing up in the tropics of Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory, Flanagan was raised by a community of cultures bolstering her proud Italian, First Nations (Alyawarre) and Irish heritage.
She has never been a stranger to narrative. In many ways, the stories have found her: classically trained and navigating the margins between soul, jazz and lovingly crafted pop stylings, Flanagan’s sound is her own and her accomplishments many. Her recent collaborative projects include Archie Roach’s 25th Anniversary reissue of Charcoal Lane, Shane Howard’s Exile: Songs and Tales of Irish Australia, the Mission Songs Project, Yothu Yindi Treaty Project, Songs For Those Who’ve Come Across The Seas , The Spirit of Churaki , and Buried Country 1.5: The Story of Aboriginal Country Music (2015). Flanagan’s song Speak Your Language was covered by singer-songwriter, Alice Skye for ABC Music’s Compilation Deadly Hearts #2.
Leah Flanagan is a proud APRA Ambassador and active mentor for young and emerging First Nations Australian songwriters.
