Beyond developing her own writing, Leila loves immersing herself in the works of others. Her diverse repertoire spans several hundreds of songs, ranging from pop, folk, soul, and rock music, to jazz standards, film/television soundtracks, and classics in English, Arabic, French, and Spanish. Her perfect pitch allows her to easily learn tunes for any occasion and setting, including weddings, proposals, corporate functions, private parties, restaurants, and hotel/resort lounges.
Leila has enjoyed a weekly solo residency at Calamigos Guest Ranch in Malibu, and has also regularly performed at The Victorian and Basement Tavern in Santa Monica, the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, and the Dinah Shore Palm Springs Estate (owned by Leonardo DiCaprio).
