LeAnn Eriksson is passionately curious about human potential. She had already begun to experiment with music as body work when she heard Carlos playing the bowls in 2006, and was instantly attracted. LeAnn began singing as a small child, and started playing classical flute at the age of ten. She also plays wooden flute, bansuri (Indian bamboo flutes) and Irish whistles. Although she has never formally studied shakuhachi, her many years living in Japan also have an influence on Wavegarden's music. Singing with the bowls has had a profound opening effect on the voice coming through LeAnn; listeners have described it as "angelic." When not traveling, LeAnn is now based near Ubud, on the island of Bali in Indonesia.
