Our #womancrushwednesday this week is up and coming country singer and all around sweetheart Leah Daniels!
With the video for her song “Go Back” in rotation on CMT, her new single “Old Piano” just serviced to Canadian radio, a handful of 2015 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) award nominations to her credit (Rising Star and Interactive Artist of the Year) and a Country Music Association Of Ontario (CMAO) Rising Star award win, Leah Daniels has already established a reputation as one of Canada’s brightest new country music artists. Blending Daniels’ love of both modern and traditional country with a healthy dose of pop smarts, her brand new album What It Feels Like (released October 23) is the perfect introduction to her powerful voice and undeniable charm. “The inspiration for my music comes directly from personal life experiences,” Daniels says. “I did a lot of writing for this record and really took the time to craft and collect the right songs. They’re not complicated topics, but they reflect the events that have touched my life.”
We chatted with the the Uxbridge, Ontario native about romance, dealbreakers and if mom really does know best. Take a read below!
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
His smile 🙂
What’s your instant deal breaker?
Who do you go to for dating advice?
My mom. The older I get the more I realize, Mom actually does know best! She’s helped me get through a break up or two.
What is your definition of romance?
A cozy night in when he makes my favourite garlic shrimp and calls me sweetie…oh and chocolate of course! 😉
Have you ever done something crazy to get a crush’s attention?
I jumped into a pool with all my clothes on!
