London based indie-pop star Leon of Athens channels the flamboyant beauty of Sufjan Stevens and Francis & the Lights, alongside a similar widescreen pop sensibility as Lauv and MARINA , who he has both supported. Leon is currently in the studio with Anu Pillai & David Sneddon (Lana Del Rey, Lewis Capaldi) completing his brand new single 'Communication' (EMI/Universal).A beautiful, thoughtful piece of work which showcases why he has become a big live draw across Europe and his rising profile in the USA where he has been confirmed to appear at SXSW, Okeechobee, Firefly Music Festival, Summerfest and Shaky Knees. The album follows the highly acclaimed release of his debut album Global, championed by the likes of The Guardian, NME, Q, New York Times and more.
