The Man Of Lists – Profiles 3 – Adam Leonard
Adam Leonard and myself have previously worked together on the Redlip project which last year yeilded an album called ‘Dan & Headless Bill’. When asked, he was more than happy to contribute a track to the new Pulco album ‘The Man Of Lists’ which is released on June 18th. Here Adam introduces himself, in his own words, all by himself.
“His singing and songs are imbued with the same wonderful eccentric characteristics as people like Roy Harper and Michael Chapman, but in a similar fashion to the aforementioned greats, he never loses sight of ‘the song’ in a quest to be quirky. In other words, he’s what all good singer/songwriters should be in an age when so few are.” ~ Steven Collins, The Owl Service
Hello. I am Adam Leonard and I release home-recorded songs and music myself, or via small labels. It’s kind of folky, sometimes a bit electronic. In an ideal world I’d be the shaded intersection on a Venn diagram of Roy Harper and The Human League.
Recent projects included a 200-copy vinyl LP which sold out in a month (soon to be issued on CD by The Northwestern Series), singing – both live and on record – with Leigh-on-sea folk-rock septet The Owl Service, and recording a soundtrack for an award-winning short film (‘Lucky Seven’) which premiered at The Raindance Film Festival in London in 2011.
I’m currently working on 5 different projects, one of which is a re-soundtracking of ’70s disaster film The Poseidon Adventure.
