Leon O’Leary is an indie-folk singer-songwriter from the Suffolk Coast in England, growing up surrounded by pine forests and the wildness of the Suffolk coast at his doorstep. The environments that often help to create and nurture the very best of British and Irish singers and songwriters, grounded by melodic truth and the beauty that surrounds them. He writes and plays with the depth and passion of a much older soul, his Celtic origins can clearly be heard in his music, giving an insight on his attempts to make sense of the world, and a young man’s discovery of love and loss. The influences of Damien Rice, Ben Howard, James Bay and Bruce Springsteen resonating in his performances.
‘There was a lovely filmic quality to O’Leary’s set. Reminiscent of Damien Rice at times, it was a solid performance, with haunting melodies, distinctive vocals and strong harmonies…’ – Eastern Daily Press at Norwich Waterfront Studio.
