Leon is a much overlooked genius of a songwriter (not to be confused with Leon Russel) who writes the type of songs I can readily identify with. He focusses on social issues and is the Ken Loach of songwriters. Classic themes on the Diggers, William Morrison and the ills of society sit alongside his songs of freedom and love.
The World Turned Upside Down and Palaces of Gold are two of my favourites.
He has passion, integrity and a sense of fairness and justice. He writes songs which are packed with meaning.
We’re both fighting for that better, fairer future!
Today I shall be playing some good old Leon!!
