Leah Rachelle and her twin sister Madison Manee grew up singing together all the time. Most of their make believe games featured musical numbers because they pretended to be rock stars… Life has a fun way of coming full circle, because they’re actual musical stars now and don’t have to pretend anymore.
When Leah was away at school, Madison would make trips to record bass for her debut album under “Leah Rachelle.” When Leah finished school, she came back to Grand Junction, and the two of them started practicing more often and going to Open Mic nights.”From there, people asked who we were… so I suppose that was the beginning of the band,” Leah said.
While ‘The Bluebirds’ is a very fun title, the reason behind the name is more personal and serious. The bluebird is a family symbol, honoring their grandmother and her faith. She had a rather tough upbringing and a bluebird became a sign of God’s faithfulness to her.
“It’s a symbol of enduring hope, and so I like to have it before me often to remember how much God has brought us through as a family, and His continued faithfulness. I hope that the message seeps through our music to encourage people,” Leah shared.
Their goal in music is to change the world and encourage people through thoughtful songwriting that stirs the soul.
“We believe it isn’t just about the blatantly hopeful songs, but that sad songs can also help people to feel understood and not alone. And that can go a long way.”
