About Lief

I'm a cellist, guitarist, composer, and teacher living in Denver, CO.  I compose, perform and license my own original neo-classical-post-rock compositions. I've been giving cello and guitar lessons since 2014.  My first solo EP, Her Prayers Sound Like Warnings, was released in the spring of 2017, and I released a full length album, Counting Breaths, in July of 2018, and a Christmas EP in December of 2018, and an EP, Impossible Parade,  in March of 2019.   I've had music placed in a series of commercials by the ad agency Motive for Highland Park Whisky.  I wrote music for the score of a documentary by Adam Reynolds.  Since moving to Denver in 2009, I've also performed or recorded with PrettyMouth, Edison, Sawmill Joe, King Cardinal, Covenhoven, The Patient Zeros, Florea, Chad Price, Tyto Alba, Corsicana, Brianna Straut, Felix Fast4ward, Poor Me, The Dead Orchids, and many more.
