One of the brightest new voices in Australian country, his sharp, Tennessee-inspired drawl and twangy acoustic juts pummelling through the mix with a distinct balance of passion and power. He tugs at the heartstrings with his bluntly emotive passages and biting honesty, and sonically, finds avenues to intensity by way of dry, lowkey strumming over dense, yet beautifully natural soundscapes. HE SOUNDS LIKE
A double shot of your finest aged whisky, neat. YOU’LL DIG HIM IF YOU LIKE
Nick Cave, Tim Rogers and Wilco. There’s a striking Southern punch to Leece’s music, but it never feels like he’s playing musical dress-up. The authenticity at play is nothing short of breathtaking, and it’s without a doubt he’d fit right at home on the Bluesfest and Tamworth Country Music Festival mainstages. YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT
His riveting debut album, No WonderTheWorldIsExhausted.
It’s a play-by-play through everything that makes country music great, delivered in a bold, acoustic-heavy mix unfettered by any unnecessary bells or whistles. This is Leece as raw as he comes, pouring his heart and soul out onto tape.
