"Young band mature beyond years"

...Spring into a new season hopeful and inspired with the help of Windsor-based singer-songwriter Leighton Bain. As he sings on Tonight, arguably his most harmonious and uplifting track, you should "Set your sights a little bit higher than your headboard / Let yourself believe you might be worth a little bit more."

Still, he addresses life's challenges on some of his softer tracks, such as Vietnam, where he sings "either way, it's safe to say, we seize this day the easy or the hard way."

And Bain seems to have been taking the hard, yet rewarding, road. He's released two discs in the last few years -- 2005's Songs to Get By and 2007's Vietnam E.P -- and he's gearing up to share lucky No. 3: Third Floor Demos.

The young vocalist/guitarist fills out his sound with the help of hand percussion (primarily the djembe, bongos and congos) and by listening to his influences (including Hayden, Mark Kozalek and Elliot Smith)...

Starting off as a natural songwriter, this project began from the need to be heard. It has become an opportunity to affect other people. Leighton has always considered the intent listener, who listens closely to the musical changes and nuances that come in considering every bit of each song. People can appreciate an effective combination of lyric and melody, and in trying to create a harmony between thoughts and emotions, Leighton aims to create a sound which is both honest and memorable. Some of Leighton's influences include Hayden, Mark Kozalek and Elliott Smith.
