We are extremely happy to announce the incredible Cian Coey, from the hit Las Vegas show, "Raiding The Rock Vault", as our new lead singer!
Yes, you heard that right! Leona has had a lot of fun singing for a few years but is ready to go back to doing what she loves more than anything, which is shredding on her Gibson SG. "It's been a wild ride, and I have loved every minute of it, but I feel like my guitar playing has taken too much of a back seat.", she says. "I thought of Cian immediately. There was no hesitation. We have been wanting to do something together for a couple years now, so I called her up. I knew that the two of us would rock hard!"
The band is practicing now, working Cian in, and writing new songs to include in the already existing catalogue. They will also include some Jaggedy Ann songs, which was Leona's previous all girl rock band, that was produced by Phil Rudd of the legendary AC/DC.
In addition, new recordings and new photos are in the plans, so stay tuned! " I absolutely can not wait to cut loose on the guitar again, and let Cian take over the vocals. She's gonna kill it and everything will be even way more awesome!"
Look out world!
Leona X will release her three song EP "Ready For This?" on Nov 1st, 2013.

Guess I'm not very good at updating my blog. It has now been 11 months post surgery and I am happy to say "I'M BACK!" Ha ha! Never before have I felt so alive and ready to rock. Can't wait for you all to see my new band!
It's been 9 months since my sugery and I now have full use of my jaw! And the braces are off! What a major transformation I have gone through! I was super afraid my vocals couldn't get back up to par, but I am proud to say I fought my way through this, never gave up, and now my vocals are better and stronger than ever! I can not wait to reveal my new smile, new voice, and new bad ass rocking band! It is ON folks! Get ready!! HA!! Lol
It's hard to believe that it has been 4 months now since my surgery! My face continues to change as my new jaw line settles in. They say it takes about 6 months to fully heal from what I had done. I have been doing physical therapy for about 3 weeks and it's really helping to get the muscles working again, and for my mouth to be able to open all the way. In July the braces will come off and I can't wait! Meanwhile, I have started my vocal lessons and so excited to get in the studio and record my new songs, then there is no stopping me!!!! Lol xoxo
O.k., now it's time to get back to business! Still working on getting my mouth to open all the way, but no more time off. Soon, it's off to the studio to lay down some new songs! Can't wait!
Halleluiah! I can chew now! I still have to eat soft foods, but it's another step towards full recovery! Next step is geeting all the surgery hooks off and being able to get my mouth all the way open so I can sing again! Then it's off to the studio to record my new songs!
