Leon C is a young contemporary folk singer songwriter from Southampton. From the age of 7, he took a deep interest in, and found a love for, music by artists from the 1960s, the era of his father. After nine years of playing guitar and classical training, Leon began mixing his love for poetry and vintage music with more modern influences to create poetically inflected contemporary folk music.
With three years of performing and making music under his belt, Leon C has matured at breakneck speed. He’s broken into the music scene of his adoptive home of Birmingham and the influence of friends around him and of the city itself has brought him to new ways of considering his songwriting, stage presence and guitar playing.
As a result, Leon’s musicality, ideas and delivery have been further streamlined and his storytelling is even more intricate than before. With songs including introspective stories and others packed with observations of the world we live in, Leon C will both move you and soothe you – he’s an act not to be missed at B LOVE this year.
