Got this sent in from Leo37 and wanted to make sure and post it on up.

More Info

After a dozen dates in Canada, the Philippines and Taiwan, Canadian-Taiwanese artist LEO37 (PPF House, The Blast) has returned with his 3rd single from his newest EP (Fanfare) entitled Gorgeous. With Fanfare receiving nearly 2000 downloads in its first week, this song, which features producer John Poon in his rawest form and LEO37 at his most poignant and crude, seemed to resonate with listeners enough so that they ultimately decided Gorgeous as the next single.

Internationally, Fanfare has received overwhelming feedback from virtually every continent on the globe:

“The result of the collaboration is an effort that is both classic and fresh and that is musically, aesthetically, stylistically refreshing.” - Illume Creative Studio (Rwanda)

“Packed with power and purpose, Fanfare is an album that represents reinvention. It’s musical rebirth.” - Far East Vibes (New York)

“Fanfare sees him bring a darker and more contemplative sound than previous, all the while maintaining the same wide sprectrum of influences – think Miles Davis, the Soulquarians, Radiohead, Bjork and Del the Funky Homosapien engaged in a slowed-down knife fight and you’ll be on the right track. - From the Feet Up (Saskatoon)

“Fanfare is definitely worth checking out!” - Taste Kulcha (Lebanon)

As a result, this newest set of visuals, shot entirely in Taipei’s world renowned Shilin Night Market by decorated photographer, Joe Russo, is less narrative and more a visual documentary on LEO37’s most recent escapades around the world.

Having now settled into his Taiwanese surroundings, the PPF House and Blast co-founder can be found bouncing around the globe performing, creating and spreading his art. With tour dates constantly popping up, be sure to check LEO37.com to find out when he’ll be in your neck of the woods.
