The Songwriter ...  Shaza Leigh

"Shaza Leigh is one of Australia's leading award winning songwriters, having had over 100 songs released.  The most significant strength in her writing is her ability to write diverse, yet catchy tunes with storylines of relevance to our life today.  This gives her universal appeal to any connoisseur of fine music. Her varied musical background and influences have made her an interesting songwriter as she has had success in various genres from pop to easy listening and through all styles of country from contemporary and country rock to Australian bush ballads and Gospel. Having met Shaza, it is evident that she is a complex personality and a visionary.  Her passion for life runs deep as she exudes enthusiasm for everything she is involved in.  She seems to have the uncanny knack of putting my own personal feelings into song.  Shaza is relevant, she's exciting and quite simply an inspirational writer of the modern era."    (Extract - Australasian Country News)
