On “(You) On My Arm,” Leith’s dynamic, yet nuanced, vocals immediately captivate. They offer an organic and unfiltered counterpoint to the lush instrumentation, showcasing yet another side of Leith and hinting at more to come from the buzzing artist.
Leith declares, “This song is about having a massive crush on someone. It happens, fortunately and unfortunately. I hope it can help with any yearning you may feel the need to do. That’s what it has done for me. I love being gay.”
“(You) On My Arm” is Leith’s first release of 2023 and follows their previous viral singles “We’ll Never Have Sex” and “Orlando.” The breakout “We’ll Never Have Sex” has amassed over 37 million Spotify streams and 1 million video views to date. In support of their new music, Leith performed sold-out headline shows across North America last fall, as well as supported Lord Huron in Canada and Andy Shauf and Helena Deland in Europe on various tours this year. Not to mention, they were the recipient of the inaugural John Prine Songwriter Fellowship at this year’s Newport Folk Festival—read more HERE.
Hailing from outside of Ottawa, Ontario, Leith Ross embraced music at a young age, channeling emotional confessions through softly strummed chords. Recorded live, they made their debut with the independent Motherwell EP in 2020. Beyond prominent editorial playlisting, it incited widespread critical applause across US and Canada. Leith maintained this momentum in 2021 with the I’d Have To Think About It, and the title track has notably amassed nearly 12 million Spotify streams to date. With a rising profile on TikTok and among tastemakers, Leith signed to Republic Records in 2022. Stay tuned for more new music and tour dates to come from Leith Ross this year!

ABOUT LEITH ROSS
Leith Ross is a songwriter, singer, and artist born and raised in a small town outside of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. They’ve been a sensitive and overly artistic person since birth, and when they started writing songs around the age of 12, it quickly became Leith’s favourite way to be sensitive and overly artistic. Still is. Since then, they’ve recorded and released two projects, and have a new one underway. Inspired by the likes of Lucinda Williams, Dolly Parton, Disney movie soundtracks, High School Musical, and their dad’s horrible parodies of all of the above, their songs attempt to explore themes of gut-wrenching and cheesy love, silliness, and extreme existentialism. Their favourite stuff. Leith’s recent singles, “We’ll Never Have Sex,” “Orlando,” and “(You) On My Arm,” are soaked in that ‘favourite stuff’ and ready to be listened to wherever you can find it.
