Check out Leon on Later with Jools now, also new album. Not going to say he's brilliant, very good compared to contemporaries , but damn he looks cool. Typing without specs, forgive mistakes!

Kev posted something up about him in Feb - he was featured in the Guardian's weekend 'one to watch'. 

I'm a fan. He's backstory is good too. He was a kitchen porter and really into his hip-hop/grime and someone played some early 60's soul on the radio and he was a game changer, apparently...

I must admit I didn't know anything about him until seeing him on Jools Holland earlier this year. Soon after found out he was touring over here and bought tickets for Shepherds Bush last night. I have to say I am very glad to have caught him and his band. I thought they were brilliant. Really entertaining, high quality songs etc. Definitely one to pay attention to if you like the early soul/gospel/doowop/rRnB end of things.
