an exciting emerging artist on the D.C. music scene. Nominated for
"Best New Artist" of 1999 by the Washington Area Music Association,
Lea is rapidly developing fans drawn to her memorable original songs
and velvety voice, as she performs throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
Garth Ross of the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage says of Lea,
"When imagining the influences for Lea's music, the obvious starting
point would seem to fall within the genre of folk. However, allow
yourself to listen a bit longer and a bit closer and you will hear
the soulful lyric frankness of blues accompanied by the chordal
and melodic complexity of jazz.

Christoff brings to his music a gifted and alluring touch
in both lyric and song. His compositions are a vast collection of
characters and experiences that have forged a sound that is all
his own. His recording "One Ring Circus" is a striking outing into
everything that he is and experiences. His stylings reach into depths
of vast color as you encounter Gypsy, Grass-Roots Blues, Creole
and Swing from song to song. His constant touring of Europe and
the U.S. surely has influenced this intriguing collage.
