Kiran Leonard is a mercurially talented 19 year old musician from Saddleworth, Greater Manchester.

‘Dear Lincoln is a wondrous sub-two-minute blast… It is without a doubt the most invigorating song I’ve heard all year.’ PITCHFORK

‘Christ knows what hyper-evolved species Kiran Leonard belongs to, but it’s not in any of the textbooks’ SHINDIG

‘The singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist is still only 17 years old, for Christ’s sake … Bowler Hat Soup would represent a career-best achievement for a preternatural craftsman of any age’
***** RECORD COLLECTOR

‘Each song contains a ridiculous amount of ideas. The melodies are gorgeously accessible. Just as captivating is Kiran himself, who plays as if he’s possessed… You can’t escape the feeling you’re in the presence of a true one-off’ NME (live review)
