21-year-old multi-instrumentalist Leo Stannard releases ‘Gravity’, a collaboration with BRIT Award-nominated songwriter Frances, on Black Butter Records (Zara Larsson, DJ Khaled.)
On ‘Gravity’, Leo strips his sound back to basics, showcasing his unique vocals and knack for crafting timeless pop melodies. The track is an ode to an enduring young love and the importance of having an ally in the face of everything life throws at you, especially as a young person making moves in the music industry. “It’s all really exciting but it’s crazy and can be overwhelming, so it’s important to have that person in your life,” says Leo. Bouncing effortlessly off one another, Leo and Frances’ delivery is poignant, raw and flawlessly executed, alluding to big things for both budding young stars this year.
The release of ‘Gravity’ follows Leo’s recent headline tour of the UK and Europe, which included sold out shows in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne and London’s Omeara. The coming year will see the versatile talent continue to master the European live circuit, with appearances at Live At Leeds and Victorious Festival confirmed and more to be announced. The last year has seen Leo headline Amsterdam’s Festival The Brave, shoot to #1 on the Shazam chart with his single ‘In My Blood’ and even grasp the attention of international superstar Kate Hudson, who shared the emotive track on Instagram. With his legion of devoted fans growing rapidly and his live shows drawing in even bigger crowds, 2017 is set to propel Leo into the stratosphere.
