Producer / Musical Director

Leon is not only an incredible and innovative writer, he is also an incredible listener, who can identify exactly what the production and record need. I understood Leon’s knowledge in music, when he showed me how much he cares about the music. He will walk the extra mile.

Producer / Songwriter

Leon is one of my favorite people to write with. Not only does he have an endless flow of beautiful melodies and the voice of an angel, but also knows just what to do to establish a level of comfort and understanding in a room before starting the session. Every time we work together it is fulfilling in more ways than just musically. I feel spiritually full and am reminded why I make music in the first place. Highly recommend working with Leon. He will help bring your artistry to life!



A&R / Songwriter

Leon is an amazing songwriter / producer and a phenomenal collaborator! We’ve worked on a number of products for a couple years now, and it has been a pleasure to collaborate with him and grow alongside him. He has a hunger to evolve, a genuine desire to succeed, and a special knack for writing songs that go beyond the surface. His creativity knows no bounds, and his versatility is so impressive!
