IF JACK BLACK AND JAMES BLUNT PRODUCED A LOVE CHILD, LEON LIVE IS WHO IT'D BE!!!
Leon Live is an extremely talented welsh Songwriter, singer and guitarist from the Welsh valley’s town of Aberdare. Leon Live is raw, emotional, powerful songs straight from the soul, This guy wears his heart proudly on his sleeve and his deeply personal, moving lyrics cant help but touch the emotional heart strings as you listen to a beautifully melodic soundscape of breathtakingly simple yet inspiring songwriting.
Leon is offering something different and possibly unique, he is uploading his songs as he writes and records them so that people can actually see the writing and recording process as it happens and see its progress from rough mixes through to finished product. This gives listeners a unique opportunity to follow an artist during the actual creative process.
All of Leon Live's music is FREE, download his stuff, listen to it as much as you want, keep coming back for more if you like it. Invlove yourself on this musical journey and if you want to support his efforts, then please add yourself as a fan or friend on his profiles, and when the final official release comes out, then show your support by buying a single or even the album on i-tunes or wherever else it will be available.
Leon is currently writing and recording guitar/vocal mixes on Pro tools and is seeking a drummer, bassists and piano/keyboard player to add the additional parts to the tracks to fill them out so that they can be sent off to various people.
Leon is also looking to then tour and gig this material and produce a full studio album for official release.
To that end, Leon is looking for professional management to help further his career and help seek out either or both recording and publishing contracts and to help with direction and career goals.
Please feel free to contact him if you are interested or would be interested in more information.
Now 34, Leon has been writing his own material since he was 17 and has been performing live from the same age.
Originally writing and playing a mix of melodic rock/metal which culminated in his self produced and self recorded home demo in 1998, which got positive reviews and praise from various rock websites.
After a few years hiatus from music due to real life events, Leon is back writing but has moved to a more acoustic based writing environment along the lines of James blunt, Travis ,David Gray, Richard Marx but still trying to capture the ‘rock!’ essence of say Tenacious D.
The Beatles, The Eagles, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, Jeff Wayne, Journey, Metallica, Megadeth, any rock band that put out a classic rock 'ballad', Cinderella, Danger Danger, Toto, Annihilator, Anything heavy and any band that was heavy that threw in the acoustic guitar now and again. He's not actually influenced by any acoustic artists which some people might find deelpy ironic!
