ABOUT LEON MARSHALL...
I'm looking forward to hearing more from Leon Marshall - I really like that song! - Jericho Keys, BBCIntroducing
Shaped by a love of music stretching from Elvis to Ed Sheeran, Johnny Cash to Cypress Hill, Leon makes music from the heart. His songs feature toe-tapping rhythms and hooks to get audiences on their feet and singing from the get-go.
Based in Harrogate, he has performed at the spa town’s famous theatre, the Harrogate Blues Bar and become a seasoned veteran of the open mic circuit. Leon’s debut EP, 'Feel The Rain', was released in June 2017. Ahead of that he released the single 'Bad.'
Outside of music, Leon and his partner run a successful cleaning business and Leon can often be found playing cards, drinking whisky and smoking his favoured brand of rolling tobacco!
In May 2017 Leon's track 'Feel The Rain' picked up within 48 hours of being uploaded onto BBCIntroducing North Yorkshire. Leon has real songwriting acumen having reached the Regional Final of Open Mic UK 2016 and achieved 'Commended Entry' in the UK Songwriting Contest for three years running in
2014, 2015 & 2016.
Leon's debut EP is highly anticipated, with a strong North Yorkshire following and a steady stream of bookings around the north of England.
