Bio

Leon finished a degree in Opera Performance from the University of Victoria and was immediately recruited to be part of The Canadian Tenors. After touring with the tenors, Leon and 3 other tenors formed Destino, another Pop-Opera group. Destino performed at the Beijing Olympics, at the Children's Miracle Network Miss America Pageant in Vegas, and opened for The Rankin Family on their cross-country tour.
Leon retired from Destino in 2009 and established a successful music studio in Calgary. He has since been working with songwriter/Juno-nominated guitar player/record producer Graham Sharkey to write and record his first solo album. The music is inspired by pop/rock sounds from bands such as Maroon 5, The Script, Muse, Radiohead. Leon uses his exquisite range and world class voice to tell an authentic story. Graham, who has engineered and co produced and played for artists such as Canadian Country Superstar, George Canyon, Richard Mark, Geoff Moore and Steve Arsenault, has offered his invaluable songwriting skills and is producing Leon's EP, due to be released in June 2012. They have also collaborated with Chris Byrne(Road Hammers, George Canyon, Canadian Songwriter of the Year) to write some original tunes. Leon is actively gigging on the Calgary scene and is excited to branch out.
