A professional drummer for over three decades, Leesa has played all over the United States and the world. For the past eleven years, she has been a member of the internationally acclaimed all-girl band Lez Zeppelin.
Leesa also has an original band, Sabbath Warlock - a heavy, doom, acid rock band.
Hailing from Houston,Texas, Leesa ventured out into the world in search of other musicians who did not care about her gender or age….only if she could play well. At the age of 15, she auditioned for a group of guys almost twice her age and they accepted her into the band.
Leesa continued to play in the bars and dance halls in and around the Houston area for the next few years. The early 90's found Leesa creating a new, original project called JOINT CHIEFS. It opened the doors even wider for her in the Houston Music Scene, winning her BEST DRUMMER awards by Reader's Polls 5 years in a row.
In 1995 Leesa joined forces with Carolyn Wonderland (John Mayall's Bluesbreakers) and toured all over the USA supporting groups like Buddy Guy, KoKo Taylor, Delbert McClinton, Big Brother and The Holding Company and others. Over the next decade or so, Leesa played behind some of the best blues players in the world including Milton Hopkins, Trudy Lynn and Lavelle White.
