Quantcast

Leo Napier is a soul singer and blues pianist born to British parents. His sharp witty lyrics and vocal range are deeply rooted in classic soul. Adding elements of Rock & Roll, R&B, folk, and pop creates a sound that has a contemporary quality with timeless distinction.

Born in Los Angeles CA, Leo split time living in LA & London during his childhood. While on the road playing piano as a teenager, Leo discovered his ability to sing and his niche as a songwriter.

In 2014 Leo moved to New York in pursuit of change and artistic growth. Leo soon became part of a burgeoning underground scene, writing and collaborating with pioneering DJ/Producers Gramatik and Griz, amoung others. Leo landed the lead singles on each artist’s releases. ‘A Fine Way to Die’ co-written and featuring Leo Napier was the lead single off Griz’s latest release ‘Say It Out Loud.’ In March of 2016, Gramatik released his full-length album ‘Epigram’, which includes the single “Native Son” featuring Leo and Wu Tang Clan’s Raekwon. 

Leo is currently writing and recording his debut material under the expert wing of legendary producer, hit maker and label executive, Richard Gottehrer, finally stepping into the spotlight as a solo artist. The single for "Dime" expected in September.

"I've been waiting for a young man like Leo for a long time.  I spotted him playing at a dive bar in Brooklyn.  He sat at his piano, the way he emoted commanded attention, you'd think he'd been here before.  I was immediately transported back in time.  He's definitely an old soul trapped in a young man's body.  He brings you back to the roots of soul music."
