Dariann Leigh took her first steps onto Nashville’s holy ground with the single “Give Me A Minute”, which climbed charts all across the nation.“Give Me A Minute” led Dariann on a national tour, and offered her a glimpse of the impact her voice can have on her listeners. From enchanting industry veterans with an energy reminiscent of 90s country icons, to being praised by the Midwest Country Music Association, Dariann grasps each accomplishment like fireflies in a mason jar, using the light to guide each step of the journey towards her dream.
For Dariann Leigh, this is so much more than just country music. From her one-stop town in Karlstad, Minnesota (population 713), Dariann captured the star power of the original women of country music from lyrics bleeding through static-filled radios and scratched CDs; even in the middle of nowhere, those melodies set the scene for a dream that would ultimately define the course of her entire life. Dariann Leigh doesn’t just want to make music, she wants to write the soundtrack for hairbrush singers, dashboard drummers and air guitar players everywhere.
“As a kid,” says Leigh, “I remember closing my eyes, plugging my headphones in and listening to tracks that ended up being the theme songs to my daydreams. I want to be that artist for someone else.” This sentiment rings true in her previous single and music video “Wherever I Go”, available now on all digital platforms.
Dariann Leigh will start the next chapter of her rapidly evolving country music career with her September 18 single "Closer."
