  What began as a little boy tinkering away at a piano has since evolved into Leiahdorus – an electro-pop band with evocative lyrics of adoration intertwined with piano, lush synthesizers, and electric guitar. Officially formed in 1998, Leiahdorus consisted of Jason Smith on piano and vocals, Fox Fletcher on guitar, and D.J. Casares on drums. Although the boys were still in high school they were steadily composing original songs and performing. In 2000, by a chance mutual friendship, Jason’s demo fell into the hands of Joey Belville (The Echoing Green), who in turn produced a three-track demo for submission to the independent label, A Different Drum. Jason was instantly signed to a full album deal, and thus, “Ashes, Ashes” was released in 2001, accompanied by two singles, “Wake,” and “Indigent.” In 2003, keyboardist Darla VanWinkle joined the band, and went on to co-write the sophomore album, “Parallel Universe,” released in 2005, with the single, “Kiss on the Telephone.” In 2007 Ryan Goodman signed up on drums, thus completing the band once again. With distribution throughout the US and Europe, courtesy of A Different Drum, along with performances across the country, Leiahdorus has progressed ever forward, transcending the electronica genre to achieve a more well-rounded identity. A third album, “Ode to the Builders,” is currently in the works, with an anticipated release in 2008/2009. Leiahdorus joined Section 44 in 2009.
