This London based singer hasn’t released a whole lot of music yet, but has already worked with the likes of Illa J on ‘Realness’, which was dedicated to J Dilla. Find out a little bit more about this very humble guy.
Leon King has been playing guitar since he was five years old and at the age of fifteen he started getting into keys combined with programming and producing, then playing bass guitar.
He sees himself as a very soulful vocalist with a strong sense of honesty that comes through in his music.
Now you might have heard the magnificent ‘The Digital Church’ on the second Pound for Pound album released on Jazzy Sport. This is such a mellow, soulful track with a mad sexy bass. By the way…Ben Jones is the one to thank for the production (he also produced the track ‘Knowingness’).
The second track ‘Faze’ was co-produced with, fellow UK singer/producer, Matti Roots. This is a more traditional new soul track, but also very tight!
Be on the lookout for Leon’s forthcoming EP called ‘The Digital Church’ that will be dropping early 2009.
