Plus SAINT LEONARD
In the past few years Kieran Leonard has toured the UK and USA supporting and playing shows with Ryan Adams, Father John Misty, Bob Dylan, The Strokes, Beck, The Libertines, Billy Bragg and Wolfmother, to name a few. Then, early last year he was invited to work on music at Stanley Kubrick’s family estate in St Albans, Hertfordshire. The intention was to harness the creative forces at work in the Kubrick house and record new material as ‘live’ as possible with the five-piece band playing together in the same room and even lead vocals being laid down live with each track.
They then further honed their skills and the songs through extensive touring and festival appearances (including Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, The Great Escape, SXSW and British Summer Time in Hyde Park). This marks the start of Saint Leonard, a culmination of two years work in search of a new recorded sound, citing the experience of the Kubrick estate, and several bizarre episodes in the isolation of stays on the Yorkshire moors and the Californian desert, as the grounds for this shift in artistic identity.
Debut album Good Luck Everybody is available to pre-order now via Xtra Mile Recordings.
