Leon O'Leary


Leon O’Leary is an indie-folk singer-songwriter from Bury St. Edmunds Suffolk, England. He grew 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. Leon has performed at notable venues such as The Norwich Arts Centre, The Portland Arms, The Waterfront Studio, The Smoke House, Latitude Festival, Bard Fest, Ipswich Sound City 19′ among others and has featured on BBC Introducing Suffolk.
