The Truth: LEAONE (pronounced ‘Lee-own’) is still very much a brooding crooner from downtown Beccles in Suffolk armed with a solemn sound which has seen him compared to the languid likes of Leonard Cohen and Lana Del Ray. ‘Wild Horse Ride On’ is his second EP release of the year and follows hot on the hooves of the single releases ‘End Of The World’ and ‘Livewire’, both included here. Leaone plays these shows to coincide with the EP launch:

OCTOBER 18TH LONDON HACKNEY Paper Dress Vintage (with Chris Hornsby)
NOVEMBER 3RD IPSWICH Smokehouse (with Softer Still)

He’s already got form, has Leaone: his debut ‘Oh, My Sweetest Sin’ EP appeared in the spring amidst louche live shows with the likes of Emmy The Great, Roddy Woomble, Wooden Arms, Desperate Journalist and Animal Noise, and was bolstered by radio support from Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens and both BBC Introducing Norfolk AND Suffolk. The ‘Wild Horse Ride On’ EP meanwhile comes backed by supple support of Arts Council England.

In the case of current radio track ‘Livewire’ it also comes underpinned by a pained piano and augmented by the saddest trumpet this side of a heartbroken brass band. Fittingly it’s seen by its creator as “ultimately an apology for my sometimes fiery temper and a confession of my ongoing love.” Better still, ‘Livewire’ came to life in a studio in Mile End with Black Butter records’ Peter Jarrett (Betsy, Lao Ra).

“It was the first song I'd ever worked on with anybody else, so it was exciting!,” beams Leaone from the depths of a tragimelodic fug. “I remember ‘Livewire’ came together so fast, and it was nice to have someone else on production duties as I didn't have time to scrutinise every little detail like I usually do - everything was knocked out in one take and that's how it remained…”

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”. Ride on, wild horses…
