Leona's Sister / Bio

Leona's Sister is a retro heavy rock band led by the powerful and unique vocals of JT.


Leona's Sister was originally a recording project created in 1998 by JT. The intent was to get her original writing put to music and recorded. With a few friends, she went into Studio92 and recorded the first CD, “Almost Alive”

In 1999, the project developed into a more regular pattern and the band Leona's Sister was started. More songs, new players, another visit to Studio92 and the second CD, “Out Of The Basement”, was born.

JT was struck by falling ice early in the spring of 1999. This brought the band to a halt but she continued to write songs.

In 2010, even though JT was still dealing with headaches from the injury, she and Bazman discussed reforming the band and approached Mike, their jamming partner. They also recruited Barb and Len who they met in the League of Rock’s winter 2010 session. 2011 saw Leona's Sister back to Studio92 and in August 2011, they released a 5 song EP titled, 552010.

In August 2012, Mike left the band and was replaced by Deputy Dave Hanson.

Leona's Sister hired producer David Barrett (The David Barrett Trio, Classic Albums Live, Platinum Blonde) to work on their latest EP, "Vexed", recorded at Toronto's renowned Phase One Studio. Vexed was released in December 2013.

Their latest single, The Damage Done, recorded at TRH Studio, was released in October 2014.

Leona's Sister are currently working on material for a new EP while continuing to gig around Toronto.
