Jeff LeBlanc w/ special guest Rhianna LaRocque
Jeff LeBlanc is using his college degree a little differently than he first envisioned. His immediately familiar-sounding blend of pop and acoustic rock quickly took him from dorm room concerts at Sacred Heart University to a 60-date tour of colleges across the country, where he was praised as everything from "the new John Mayer" to an artist "perfectly in tune with his audience."
His new album, "Worth Holding On To", was self-released on August 23rd, 2011 and quickly rose to #3 on the iTunes Top 200 Singer/Songwriter Chart. He's become a staple on the Sirius/XM Coffee House channel, even grabbing a nomination for their "Singer/Songwriter Discovery of 2011".
recently toured with the likes of the Goo Goo Dolls, Ingrid Michaelson, Matt
Nathanson, Brett Dennen, David Archuleta and many more.
Rhianna LaRocque has come a long way since spending Sunday afternoons in her hometown of Severna Park, MD, singing Spice Girls songs into her hairbrush. Today, in the midst of releasing her second EP, Rhianna has evolved into a unique and versatile singer-songwriter whose music combines a level of introspection beyond her years with the wide-eyed sincerity of someone always trying to learn and gro…w. Floating over rolling chord patterns, Rhianna’s voice has one quality that stands out above many others – honesty. Her voice is real, unembellished and reminiscent of a time when a guitar and a voice was all you needed to say something beautiful. Lucky for us, she’s only just begun talking.
She has shared the stage with the likes of Eric Hutchinson, Tom Paxton, Freedy Johnston, and Cliff Eberhardt.
