Leah Lever – Sweet Life

Event Description

Unfortunately, due to members of Sweet Life’s creative team being in close contact with a Covid-19 case, this show will no longer be going ahead as part of this week’s Cabfest ‘22 program.

Sweet Life is like a tapas that samples all the ups and downs of romance, blended within a narrative that links each layer together like fresh cream in a black forrest cherry cake.

Like the lingering drizzle of honey, the warming trickle of sipped wine, and the sensual burst of flavour from the first bite into a strawberry, Leah Lever’s new cabaret Sweet Life will leave you wanting more. Brimming with all things sugar and spice, this show brings together the bittersweet moments of life through songs that will course through the senses, leaving a blend of tangled flavours for you to savour.

From the classic Blueberry Hill to Julie Andrew’s iconic rendering of My Favourite Things, the weird and wonderful Summer Wine and the sublime Love Taste’s Like Strawberries, Leah will give you a tantalising taste of all of life’s more intriguing flavours throughout this scrumptious cabaret which reflects all the vulnerable innocence, courage and authenticity of Maria in The Sound of Music.

About the Artists

Teenage songstress Leah Lever has an ethereal soprano tone that lifts her audience on an inspirational journey of positivity.

Leah was identified as musically gifted at a young age. Then, when she was just 15 years old, Leah was the youngest ever student accepted to study music at one of Queensland’s leading universities and graduated with a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Music) With Distinction in 2020 – at just 18 years old. She polished her performance skills studying at Australia’s most prestigious creative arts institution, the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA) this year.

Inspired by music from the 1940s to the 1960s, Leah’s style is versatile and includes classical cross-over, musical theatre, ballads, jazz, folk, and pop.

The sweet sounds of her original music is swaddled in empathy and encouragement and praises authenticity, individuality and triumph over adversity.

Whether she’s singing before a crowd of thousands or performing a more intimate cabaret show for just a hundred or so eager fans, Leah always gives her all and creates an unforgettable musical experience for her audience.
