For fans of John Mayer and the likes
I clearly remember that could night in September in 2011 when John Mayer were touring through Copenhagen. He played one hell of a show the first night but was forced to cancel his show on the second night due to granuloma, a form of throat infection. I was part of that first night crowd with a couple of friends and let me just say it was a magical night. Somehow this young British Leicester-based singer-songwriter Leo Stannard evokes the same feelings I had on that first John Mayer night in Copenhagen, a mix of loneliness and love – love of everything around me.
Some artist struggles for years to success in the music business and others just hit that perfect chord the very first time they ever release something, Leo is that guy. With an EP release in his backpack he has begun his lifelong travel into the most hardcore and most shallow business on the planet, but still with more than promising odds for success. He just released his new single “Eliza” four days ago and no matter what this is slated to be a success. If you’re a fan of the Mayer meets Damien Rice kind of sound you will fall in love with this wonderkid instantly.
Here is Leo!
