When Leron Thomasâ€™ mum was in the queue for the â€˜bestowment of gifts onto new born childâ€™, she was handed a few.Â Which makes a Leron Thomas an anomaly. The talented trumpet, composer, vocalist and lyrist creates a strange but wonderful concoction of music that spans a range of genres.
While you can never be quite sure what you are going to get, you can rest assured knowing the consistency is in the quality.
According to Leronâ€™s bio he has been establishing his musical career working alongside the likes of Robert Glasper, Micheal Stipe, Lauryn Hill and Mos Def. His solo efforts have received the recent co-sign from Giles Peterson, who featured him on Brownswood Bubblers Eight.
Leron also likes to dabble on the visual side of things. Retro video mash-up edits Old Friends, featuring clown faced youngsters who veer more on the side of Stephen King’s It than the playful childrenâ€™s party variety.
