South Louisiana born Lelia Broussard is described as a sultry, soulful pop artist. Her music is rooted in her Southern heritage, but having moved to Philadelphia in her teens, she has taken influences from the Philly soul sound. Her debut EP, Louisiana Soul, written and recorded when Lelia was just 15 got extensive airplay on University of Pennsylvania's 88.5 WXPN. Ultimately, two of Lelia's songs, "Secrets" and "Should Have Known", from that first EP, were featured on two episodes of Joan of Arcadia on CBS-TV. Broussard has since transplanted to Los Angeles.
