Leah Jane Shows Off Her Paper Crown

The Toronto pop singer explains the difference between losing and letting go.

Leah Jane is a queen with a Paper Crown in her melodious and empowering debut single — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Propelled by an indie poptimism that reflects her commitment to remaining above the fray, the Toronto multi-talent’s song emphasizes the importance of understanding the difference between losing and letting go. The song encapsulates the experience of leaving a damaging relationship and is characterized by its empowering message of finding peace. With its early 2000s Avril Lavigne vibes, Paper Crown contributes to the nostalgic essence of Leah Jane’s upcoming EP.

Paper Crown reflects her diverse musical influences, ranging from Taylor Swift to Gregory Alan Isakov. Its creation was a collaborative effort with Selfish Things members Alex Biro and Mike Ticar, alongside Neil Mcinnis and Mike Tompa (Silverstein, Cindë).

Leah Jane describes the songwriting process as both fun and therapeutic, emphasizing its theme of releasing oneself from burdensome ties. This single showcases her evolution as an artist, expanding her repertoire beyond her folk roots into a more ethereal and unique sound.

A nominee for Best Actress at the Short Stop Film Fest and a recognizable face from House of Deadly Lies, Leah Jane brings her acting skills into her musical performances, creating a cinematic experience for her listeners. Her debut EP Nottingham Drive tells poignant stories of feeling undervalued, viewed from a broad perspective. This EP is a testament to her journey as an artist, marked notably by her receipt of the 2019 RBC Emerging Musician/Canadian Walk of Fame Scholarship for her song Water.
