Leah Kate writes pop/rock anthems that cut to the bone. Pairing booming, radio-ready choruses with poignant, hyper-specific details, her songs are intimate and razor-sharp—the sort of tracks that resonate with listeners around the world. The Los Angeles-based artist released her debut album SUPER OVER, on September 15th. Ushering a new chapter filled with empowerment, knowing your worth, and living your best life, this new era cements Leah as one of break-up pop’s heavy weights and one of the leaders in the genre.
Drawn from a tumultuous time in her life, SUPER OVER stands as a testament to Leah’s resilience and ability to transform personal pain into electrifying artistry. “I worked on the ‘Super Over’ album during a time when I was involved with a very toxic person,” reflects Leah. “The process of this album helped to heal me, and I’m sure it will resonate similarly with many who listen.”
The album epitomizes Leah’s knack for turning the rawness of real-life experiences into anthems that are simultaneously poignant and uplifting. The explosive “Super Over,” is an empowering, in your face, break up song that encourages people to move on from toxic relationships and live their best life. “It’s my official ‘I’m cutting you off anthem for the rest of my life,'” Leah proudly states. Meanwhile, “Space,” which brings a retro alt-pop flavor to Leah’s discography, delves into post-breakup realization, capturing the exhilaration that comes with moving on.
To accompany her debut album, Leah embarked on her first ever headlining tour this fall. Super Over North American Tour kicked off September 11th, visiting major markets across the country and featured material from the new album as well as her 2022 breakout EP Alive and Unwell including songs like “F*ck Up the Friendship,” and the platinum-certified “10 Things I Hate About You,” which charted on Billboard Global 200 and Pop Radio Top 20 upon release. Leah is now headed with Anne-Marie on The Unhealthy Club Tour, hitting Germany, France, Ireland, the UK and the Netherlands.
Growing up, Leah always knew she was destined for the stage. From her first singing lesson at 5, emulating her favorite artists in music videos, to penning her first song at 13 (which she cheekily notes was “about a stupid guy”), Leah’s musical journey has been nothing short of remarkable. Her determination even led her to contact major producers in her early days, showcasing her innate hustle.
A pivotal moment came with her breakthrough track “10 Things I Hate About You,” a snarky breakup anthem that resonated with listeners around the world. A week and a half after she posted a snippet on TikTok, the song was live on DSPs and has since amassed millions of streams to date and asserted Leah’s place in the pop world.
Her previous collaborations with producer Mike Wise and co-writer Madi Yanofsky shaped her sound, aligning her love for Green Day, No Doubt, and Avril Lavigne with contemporary pop sensibilities. Leah’s rise has been meteoric, with over 300M+ global streams, 200M+ TikTok views to date and millions of followers across all socials. After touring alongside icons like Madison Beer and Chase Atlantic, and performing at festivals like Summerfest, Leah Kate’s trajectory is only pointing upward.
With the release of Super Over and the North American tour, Leah is not just realizing her childhood dreams, but she’s setting a new standard for break-up pop. “This was just always how I envisioned my future,” Leah asserts. Proving her naysayers wrong is just an added perk. The artist’s message is clear: she’s living her dream, and she’s only getting started. Stay tuned, as Leah Kate takes the world by storm.
