Allora Leonard is a seventeen year old singer/songwriter born and raised on a ranch in south Texas. Her deep soulful vocals are a unique blend of pure country and blues. Combining her love of legendary Texas swing and classic country into a fresh, current sound has created a style that resonates with many generations. A true country girl, when Allora is not singing you can find her competing in reined cowhorse events with her amazing mare, Chex Star Shiner (Mama T). In the fall, her love for the outdoors and wildlife lead her to early morning hunts with her dad in Texas and Colorado.
Old Soul Girl, Allora's first EP, was cut in Nashville at the famed Dark Horse Studio. She was blessed to colaborate with Grammy award winning producer, Casey Wasner, and Showdog - Universal Music recording artist, JT Hodges, for this project. Allora wrote and cowrote 5 of the 6 songs on the EP. Her wide range of musical influence is showcased with songs ranging from upbeat 90's style country to soulful blues ballads.
As a songwriter, Allora has been inspired in many ways by a family member that had great success in writing country music. Royce Porter wrote many hits for such artists as George Strait, Keith Whitley, Tanya Tucker, Reba McEntire and Kenny Chesney. Allora appreciates his storytelling style and finds that she tends to follow that same pattern. She loves paying tribute to him by covering some of his tunes, such as Ocean Front Property, in her live performances.
With 150 performances already booked for 2021, Allora is gracing stages from Texas to Colorado. Texas has inspired her creative energy resulting in lots of new material for the next project. All of the great energy surrounding her is setting things up for an exciting future.
