Leanne first moved to London from Canada in 1991, immersing herself deep in the underground music scene. London club culture soon became more than a passtime; it built a community, friends and family. Years spent creating visual identities with Robi Walters for people like Gilles Peterson, Benji B and Coop/West London massive, working with Patrick Forge on his Kiss FM radio show and behind the counter at Honest Jon’s helped to develop a broad appreciation and rich musical heritage.
She’s been a part of Worldwide FM since the very beginning helping to establish cultural programming such as a pop up at 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair at Somerset House, curating the past few International Women’s Days and creating audio documentaries like Basquiat: The Gold Griot and Charles Stepney: Black Gold of the Sun. Her regular The Emerald Tablet show on Worldwide FM has included guests such as Cleo Sol, Matthew Herbert, Mad Professor, Equiknoxx, Amp Fiddler, Dez Andres and DJ Sotofett.
