Leote has a heart for finding young talent in disadvantaged communities and preparing them for the tough, yet rewarding, South African music industry. She runs various workshops focusing on the entrepreneurial side of the entertainment industry as well as talent development.
LZ Taylor Productions also outsources entertainment for various corporate and private events.
Hailing from the capital city of KZN, Leote was adopted and raised in the vibrant City of Pretoria. She showed an interest in music from a very young age belting out Whitney Houston’s greatest love songs at the early age of 3 years old. It was clear to see that she had talent. Upon matriculating, she enrolled to study industrial psychology. 3 years later her calling to perform could no longer be contained. So Leote enrolled herself at the MC Art Academy at the South African State Theatre and there she learned music theory and started playing the violin.
She joined the Barnyard theatre for a small stint, however, it wasn’t long before she was spotted by an international talent agency which subsequently whisked her off to South East Asia for what was supposed to be a 6 month tour, but because of her amazing talent, turned into a 4 year stay and performances in over thirteen different countries such as Singapore, Turkey, Malaysia, Bulgaria, Egypt and Thailand to name but a few.
Upon completion of her final tour she returned to South Africa to pursue her dream of completing her studies. She enrolled at the Tshwane University of Technology and graduated in 2016 with a Cum Laude in Arts Administration and a National Diploma in the performing Arts.
Leote Taylor is currently performing at many of your favorite venues around Gauteng, in venues such as “Back of the Moon”, “Katzy’s”, Carnival City, Time Square Pretoria to list a few. She also holds an impressive 5-year (and running) residency at the prestigious Sheraton Hotel in Pretoria, where she has performed for Presidents, Diplomats and Royalty. This residency has allowed her to build up an impressive corporate performance portfolio, most recently the Vodacom CEO Awards 2018. She still travels regularly having recently returned from a tour of Abu Dhabi & Morocco.
This songbird is also a songwriter and has penned many a song you may hear on your radio today. Her voice can also be heard on many of your favorite house tracks on radio. On a recent trip to New York a song she wrote co-produced and sang reached #1 on the New York Dance Charts.
