Leon T. Pearl


Tuesday 6th August 2013

If assuming a moniker can give us an outlet from which to explore the extraordinary in our everyday selves, then this is precisely the intention of 24 year old producer Leon T. Pearl.

Born in London and raised in Edinburgh, Leon's early musical adventures brought together a love of electronic music, club culture and classical piano. Time well spent travelling brought more inspiration: a mutual friend led to studio sessions with Nicolas Jaar in New York and a rudimental grasp of Japanese resulted in a young Leon residing in Tokyo for a short while.

Returning to Edinburgh he refined his musical output into the sharp, fresh, beat-driven take on satirical pop evident in his debut single 'Take You To Market'. One of the first releases on the newly minted Method Records label, 'Take You To Market' builds from a simple piano intro into a stuttering 2-step-lead flux of vocal samples, melodic hooks and spiky one-liners.
