Leaone (Lee-own) is a smouldering new talent from Suffolk, UK.
2017 saw the release of two EP’s, entitled ‘Oh, My Sweetest Sin’ and ‘Wild Horse Ride On'. Mixed by Jim Lowe (Stereophonics), the songs gathered new fans from Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1), Jo Whiley (BBC Radio 2), Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music), and Chris Hawkins (BBC 6 Music), whilst leading to support shows with Emmy The Great, and Roddy Woomble (Idlewild).
Leaone finished the year with a remix of his song 'Devil May Care' from New York based songwriter and producer Tom Marsh, of Lana Del Rey fame.
“Emotionally downbeat but completely gripping.” Clash
“With fair comparisons having been drawn to Johnny Cash and Elliot Smith, alongside the definite hints of The National’s Matt Berninger and Crash Test Dummies’ Brad Roberts in his bass-heavy vocal, Leaone is in good company. “ – The Tipping Point
“Leaone has a distinct stadium-filling feel to him, as if Coldplay got a cool younger brother.” – The Most Radicalist
“Leaone conjures up memories of Jacques Brel and Scott Walker in a stylised package that would blow Hurts out of the water in an atmospheric death-match.” – Outline Online
“This feels like a male-fronted version of a lost Adele song in its dramatic sweep, use of vocals, and general expansiveness. Could be poised for a big breakthrough.” – Independent Clauses
