"'Eye-watering brilliance'"

'Eye-watering brilliance. I am speechless to what I just heard. Wow.' - Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1

"‘Entrancing... even heavenly'"

Leo James Conroy - “Like Ink”
SXSW 2016 - OEB Score: 9

That voice. Leo James Conroy has a naturally rich tone, inflected with jazz, folk and pop influences on his 2015 debut EP. He hits a lot of notes, but also finds time to let sounds play out emotionally, a mix of virtuosity and raw tenderness that is goose-bump tingling at its peak. His music is mostly in quiet pastures and his minimal moments sound best - see “I Only Pray When I Am Desperate” for Conroy’s strongest vocal on the EP, especially the top half accompanied only by an acoustic guitar. The pop-soul moments work as well - there are pointed gospel influences that legitimately add a spiritual overcoat to Conroy’s music. Best yet, Conroy just quietly released his prettiest song to date, the entrancing, even heavenly “Like Ink”. He’s clearly going for the most beautiful sounds he can reach no matter the level of orchestration, a quality that could make for a stunning SXSW set - Leo James Conroy opens up a showcase at Stephen F’s Bar on Friday night. - SXSW 2016 - Operation Every Band

"'A phenomenal young talent'"

'I would put my mortgage on this guy going onto great, great things. A phenomenal young talent with such a powerful voice. Simply stunning. He hits you right to the core.' - Jericho Keys, BBC Introducing


Still working on that hot first release.
