About Blackthorne

Oakville, Canada

Alternative indie jazzy blues and pop by former lead vocalist of 80s cult favourites, The Extras.

The 80s offered Leon opportunities to come out as a songwriter. The Extras scored an underground hit with the novelty track "Circular Impression" and a groundbreaking animated video called "Can't Stand Still" which featured a very nervous cat. Signed to indie label Ready Records they released several l.p.s and singles from 1980 - 1985.

The 90s gave him the technology to facilitate new ideas in Industrial Artz. Signed to Cargo Records America and MCA (Canada) Leon programmed heavy beats with distorted vocals for I.A. as they prepared to take on the world.. until the forces of evil forced the band to implode. And then when the smoke cleared....

Leon got his mojo back in the 00s as he became featured sideman-drummer with guitarist Danny Marks (Edward Bear) and vintage blues rocker Paul James.

Currently he is focused on singing/songwriting again and in 2007 released his first solo CD Unwanted Memories. Always fun and intriguing, Leon's music hints of 60s style rock, rhythm n blues.
