Her Debut single, “Story”, was playlist by BBC Radio 2 and personally championed by the late Sir Terry Wogan. This period of time culminated a televised live performance of the single on ITV’s This Morning. Follow-up singles, “Summer Song” and “Edie” were also playlist by BBC Radio 2. Leddra has toured with the likes of Sir Tom Jones, Katie Melua and Ed Sheeran (who invited her to guest vocal on his EP ” Songs I Wrote With Amy” and on his debut album, “+”)
This was followed by “The Crowds & Cocktails EP”. Lead-track “All About You” was to become a live favourite & was named “Record of the Week” on BBC Radio 2.

The track was the fifth single in a row with Leddra’s name on it to be playlist by Radio 2 and continued to showcase her development as an artist.
