Leaone Cries Fly, My Swallow
7th April 2017
Share: Artist Profile
A gently broken one sheet

The Act: LEAONE

The Tune: ‘FLY, MY SWALLOW’

The Format: DIGITAL SINGLE

The Focus Date: APRIL 14TH 2017

The Label: FIERCE PANDA

The Truth: LEAONE (pronounced ‘Lee-own’) is a smouldering new talent from Beccles in Suffolk. Ostensibly one man with a deep, rich vocal sound which has seen him described as the missing link between Leonard (Cohen) and Lana (Del Ray), ‘Fly, My Swallow’ is Leaone’s third ever single following 2016’s lush, lovelorn DIY (em)brace of ‘Young Green Eyes’ and ‘Goldtooth’.

Backed by live guitar, drums, keys and a multitude of symphonic effects Leaone eased into 2017 with a perfectly-balanced triplet of shows in Norwich, Dalston and Stowmarket. Continuing the East Anglian theme, the seaside scenes in the ‘Fly, My Swallow’ video were filmed at Holkham beach on the North Norfolk coast. Leaone follows that trick with these single release shows here:
TUESDAY APRIL 11TH LONDON DALSTON THE VICTORIA (w/ Heavy Heart + Curtsy & Cry)
FRIDAY APRIL 14TH NORWICH THE MURDERERS (headline launch show)

Produced by the singer himself, and mixed by Jim Lowe (Stereophonics), Leaone wrote the elegant, gallant ‘Fly, My Swallow’ in his parent’s attic after a series of events (losing his girlfriend, losing his job and getting mugged) led him back home to his native East Anglia. But don’t think these losses make Leaone a loser – ‘Fly, My Swallow’ might wallow in misery but the muscular melodies suggest a redemptive tone.

Following live shows with the likes of Emmy The Great, Idlewild’s Roddy Woomble, Wooden Arms, Desperate Journalist and Animal Noise and bolstered by radio support from both BBC Introducing Norfolk AND Suffolk Leaone is now prepping for the release of a full fat four-track EP release on fierce panda in the spring.

Intriguingly, in an interview with M Magazine late last year, when asked why music was important Leaone replied: “Because it helps to contain my madness”. Something quietly sensational this way comes…
