Joe Stanley, CashBox Magazine

"Charm. That’s the first word that comes to mind when listening to this artist. ... intimate, heartfelt, inspiring, humorous .... he's a strong, strong songwriter with a good sense for telling a story."
Songwriter’s Monthly Magazine

"I'm in love! I'm in love! I'm in love with a wonderful voice. I don’t believe I have been so deeply affected by the sheer soulful quality of a musician since the first time I saw and heard Ian Tyson many years ago. Add a delightfully Aussie accent and you have an unforgettable combination."
Cattle-Call E-Zine

Bio

Leighton B. Watts - Australian singer, songwriter and poet - has racked up an impressive array of accolades over the years, especially in the USA where he lived and worked for more than ten years.

Now back in Australia, Leighton revels in touring the countryside, sharing his magic with bushies, townies and city-folk alike. Simply put, he is a festival performer 'extraordinaire' with a style that is intrinsically Australian.

With his heart in the Outback and a baritone as rich and authentic as the leather on his RM Williams boots, Leighton B. Watts writes and sings about Australia - the desert spaces, the rivers, the towns, and the colourful characters who become indelibly marked on our memories. He is a unique and powerful performer, committed to a heartfelt brand of original Australian music and storytelling.
