I was going to post something a bit later, but after noticing my last piece of pie has been stricken with the precursor to penicillin, I figured that now was indeed the time to write about a lovely singer named Leerone. She’s from California and mixes her slightly unpredictable piano ballads with her lovely voice. That voice will help for those among you who don’t like or can’t get into songs that surprise you with the musical turns that they make. For instance, her song Care For Some Whiskey? has the catchy pop vibes that would make it on mainstream radio, but it is nowhere near formulaic enough. And slightly off the subject, it also has a rather strange and awesome music video which you should look on Youtube for.
My favorites of her songs, JUNK/Peace of Mind and Here on Earth/The Opening are, well, amazing. The first opens with a simple, repetitive, but oh-so-enjoyable piano bit that I could listen to for half an hour and not get tired of it. The second’s opening doesn’t entrance me as much, but the closing does with its layered vocals that I could listen to for another half hour and love it the whole time. I can’t find any links for the first, but you can listen to the second on her secondary Myspace.
And yes, I would most certainly care for some whiskey, please.
