father, featured on National TV – ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox TV, USA Today, The Don Imus show, Geraldo, & more.
Inducted into The Blues Hall of Fame by the National Heritage Foundation in 2011, Leon’s notable style influence flows from the Delta. Acknowledged as a music historian, Leon has a passion for rhythmic interpretation and the stories behind it, in all of his music.
His captivating live performances highlight his vocal and musical talent which have garnered a reputation for uncommonly entertaining audiences with his story telling and musical styles, true to the original formats of the early “JukeJoints” on the plantations when featured artists would bring a variety of influence and styles to each show.
Leon’s main focus covers Acoustic Blues/Rock, Country, Country Blues, and Americana.
Leon honed his art modeling the early Delta Blues, & Country Blues masters, with the specific influence of Eddie ‘Son’ House The Great Delta Musical Icon, Leon’s favorite character from that era. Passionate vocals, incredible rhythms, and powerful delivery are synonymous in both men’s musical style.
He travels widely, sharing history and elements of America’s music evolution thru multiple genres and engaging styles, taking you on a musical journey performed tastefully, with traditional elements, incorporated and performed from a modern day approach.
Performing professionally since 1992 he formed and fronted the Midwest band Blue Country 92-98′, the acoustic percussion duo Undercover Acoustic from 2001-2007 and then formed Leon’s JukeJoint, performing both solo, as a duo and with a full band at major music events and venues including the world famous MIM – Music Instrument Museum, the Telluride Blues Festival where he was an honored winner in the Acoustic Showdown in 2009.
He also performed at Sturgis Bike Week events, multiple International music festivals, and all over the southwest US as a resort feature and headline act.
