"KLOS Joe Benson"

"Unquestionably, one of the best bands in Los Angeles." - Local Licks

"The Leonards"

"The brilliant simplicity of "She Said Goodbye" is about the best example of an unsigned band penning a song that KLOS would play every ten minutes if the band had a deal." - LA Music Connection

"The Leonards"

"The band has no pose to sell, just good tunes executed with verve and skill."
{ds} - Trouser Press

"On a more rock 'n rollin note"

Solid as a rock, the Leonards are like a '60 Caddy plowing into an '06
Acura, sporting a musical knowhow that reaches back to Sun Studios. John Pozza establishes his role with some of the most catchy choruses (She Said Goodbye) caught by these ears in some time - with cool lyrics to boot. If'n bands like the Kings of Leon pump you up, then the Leonards may be a similar source of satisfaction. - CMJ New Music Report

The Leonards play rock and roll, similar to Kings of Leon, but with an edge reflecting their love of The Rolling Stones, The Who, Beat Farmers, the Velvet Underground, and the MC5.

Drummer Nick played with Mary's Danish performing on "Don't Crash the Car Tonight." Most of the players are originally from Detroit. Regulars of the LA music scene, their music has been played by Rodney On The Rock, KROQ, KXLU, KCRW, Joe Benson, and heard nationally on college radio.

The Leonards are straight forward rock and roll. Which brings us back to the Michigan thing. There must be something diesel in the air or polluted in the water because bands from their neck of the woods play with a certain panache that reminds you that the Stooges and MC5 were playing punk way before '76. The Leonards image is more of an anti-image, they just want to rock.
