Leonie Mac

A bourgeois bohemian with a creative streak that runs deep, Leonie Mac is an exceptional Australian singer song-writer. Her eclectic music draws on many musical influences such as pop-rock, dark wave, ambient, world, electronic, and the Bristol sound. Leonie was smuggled into nightclubs and pubs by her older sister when she was only 12. These influential years paved the way for her interest in the music industry and she started performing in her teens. In the late 1990s she was signed to Albert Productions - Australia's oldest and most successful independent recording company. She was the first solo female artist the iconic company had ever signed to their label. She has also been a recipient of funding from The Australia Council for the Arts and she won recognition for her lyric writing in the National Song Writers Competition. In her her early days, radio station Double J selected her band for their Band of the Week compilation album. She continues to write and record as an independent artist.

I’ve got bars on the windows and I keep a rifle by my bed. 
I jump when the wind blows and I’m socially dead. Answering the door is like Russian roulette, and I wonder why I haven’t been tricked yet.

You know when you’re out of luck - when your wings are giving up - then you feel the wind drop…

The torment pushes and it pulls - the silence gives me a chill. They say fear's a state of mind - like my fear of flying... the danger gives me a thrill. 
I’m keeping the cat from the canary - keeping the cat from the canary. 

I strung bells on the windows. I rent the highest floor. 
I shy from the shadows and barricade the door. 
This snake pit and pendulum triggers my adrenalin…
Who’ll make it past?

You know when your time is up - the room in spin is speeding up - the poison is in the wrong cup...

The torment pushes and it pulls. The silence gives me a chill. They say fear's a state of mind - like my fear of flying... the danger gives me a thrill. 
I’m keeping the cat from the canary...
The danger gives me a thrill.

Danger... danger - danger - danger

You know when you’re out of luck - when your wings are giving up - then you feel the wind drop…

The torment pushes and it pulls. The silence gives me a chill. They say fear's a state of mind - like my fear of flying... the danger gives me a thrill. 

The torment pushes and it pulls. The silence gives me a chill. They say fear's a state of mind - like my fear of flying... the danger gives me a thrill. 

I’m keeping the cat from the canary. Keeping the cat from the canary.
