Dean’s dreams of singing continued to grow and after graduating high school he attended college on an partial music scholarship for voice but it wasn’t until posting his talents online that he was discovered by his current manager and producer, Larry Ferguson.

Leonard the Band did not set out to sound like anything or anyone in particular- they came together and forged a sound uniquely their own. Art is their outlet and they wish to share it with fans and new listeners. Being from the small town of Metropolis is a challenge that they embrace and has humbled their craft. They hope to share their music with anyone who is willing to listen. Their influences bleed through their music, but do not define it.
