A Soulful Voice
Mattie Leon, with his brother Mike, graced our stage last year as the opener for Kate Boothman. We were so impressed we asked him back as a solo act. Mattie is a singer/songwriter hailing from Hamilton. A craftsman with a guitar, Mattie refuses to leave the past behind. His sensibilities are informed by the songwriting of the sixties and seventies. His voice, whether soaring or soulful, is his own. The result is a fresh take on a classic form; familiar but unmistakably new.
Mattie is no stranger to the road. He’s brought his music to stages across Canada, from the Atlantic to Pacific coasts. At his side is Mike Leon, Mattie’s drummer and longtime collaborator. Together, they’ve become a captivating example of the unique thing that happens when siblings perform together.
Mattie worked with JUNO-award winning producer, Gavin Brown, on his new LP, In Natural Light (April 2021)
