Good As Gone / Bio

Good As Gone Music is a blend of tight harmonies, killer lead vocals, catchy hooks, deep roots country music and down home lyrics reflecting America. Alexa Manza and LeighAnn Heil have made a big splash on the music scene in central Texas, playing gigs every week while gaining a large fan base wherever they play.

According to LeighAnn:
"Most venues we play have all ages of folks from all walks of life. You can tell that some are hard-core rockers, or hip hop fans. But we inevitably win them all over! Our vocals are so tight and the music really crosses over. I think the audience can see we really just love to play music together."

Both girls have roots deep in America and a great love of country music.

"I'm an Army brat, and I married an Army brat who was also serving, I love everything about America and being an Amercian, especially the music of the south. I have roots in Alabama, Mississippi and of course Texas. LeighAnn's family owns land in the piney woods of east TX, bought during the civil war, and her dad worked for the steel mill there for years. The south speaks to us, and we write and sing the songs that represent it." said Alexa.

Alexa and LeighAnn each knew from a very early age they had a gift of music. Alexa explored cover bands of various genres and musical theater and LeighAnn played in metal bands, hard rock cover bands and a long term gig with a Celtic original band. Both girls are veterans of the stage and gig consistently through Texas.

"We were singing 80's songs together in a cover band, and I asked Alexa, 'Hey, you wanna go rogue?' We quit that band and I started writing. We never looked back!" LeighAnn said.

Good As Gone is now the house band for Teresa's Stocktank, and plays there the first Saturday of each month. The girls won the Bordeaux International songwriting contest with the Bordeaux Wine Council, in Bordeaux, France. They recently incorporated into a limited liability company, Gypsy Highway Productions LLC.
