Leah (Gypsy) Youngraven began playing guitar, singing and composing in the mid 1980s, picked up the bodhrán in the early 1990s, and began playing mandolin in the mid 2000s. She had her performance debut in the summer of 1992, and since then has played in bands in North Texas, Oklahoma, Georgia, and Alabama, as well as in sessions in Texas, Oklahoma, California, Georgia, Tennessee, Cornwall-UK, and Alabama. Her vocal range is alto to mezzo soprano, and she sings competently in English, French, and Irish. She cites Susan McKeown, Cathy Jordan, Niamh Parsons, and Dolores Keane as primary influences.
