I play under the name Leon Marshall. Marshall is my middle name, my surname Denison doesn’t quite sound as apt!
My list is of influences is endless, Elvis, Fleetwood Mac, Sheryl Crow, Jack Johnson, Luke Coombs…I could go on forever! But I’m also a bit of a ‘people watcher’ so I take a lot of influence from the people I meet and see day to day, strangers. From a woman walking past me laughing on the phone to a guy in front of me in the queue at the local shop shouting at the cashier, I like to give them a back story and sometimes it’ll spark an idea for a song.
