The Thick Black Line That Separates Right from Wrong
Long Dark Train
Mitchell Leonard is a Brooklyn-based pianist, composer, and songwriter. His childhood comprised afternoons at the piano learning Gershwin preludes, and late nights quietly padding out of his room to listen to his father play drums with his jazz combo.
During his teenage years, he worked as an accompanist for traveling theater companies, which helped him develop a knack for flashy songwriting, and a general disdain for musicals. Since then, he has recorded several albums, played hundreds of live shows, and managed to live most of his adult life on Pleasure Island without turning completely into a donkey.
