Her drive to succeed saw her take up extra curricular activities such as piano lessons and becoming part of the choir in high school. It wasn't long before Lea Anna became the star of every concert and school recital. The Royal seal of approval came in 2006, when a performance in front of Prince Charles was highly rated by all in attendance. The following year saw an introduction to legendary reggae musician and producer BIgga, who worked alongside the young artist to create her first recorded track, a cover version of Tracy Chapman's "Bang Bang Bang". It didn't take long for a wider audience to recognise Lea Anna's potential and within months she was providing background vocals to Jamaican singer Queen Ifrika at the notable Rebel Salute show. During this time, Lea Anna began to explore and experiment with writing. After working with a selection of producers, it wasn't long before she was introduced to one of the most highly rated up and coming producers, Wundah (Blessed Youth Ent). This working relationship instantly clicked into place, and the results were testament to their potential - the track "Kisses" received widespread airplay across the board including being playlisted at BBC Radio 1Xtra. The pair continued to work together, and next came another playlisted track, "Kitty Kat". Her third single has continued her growth and progression - "Murder" sees Lea Anna tackle a dancehall track, produced by acclaimed Radio & Club DJ Robbo Ranx and is unquestionably the standout cut on the Champagne Campaign riddim.
