ABOUT JOE LEADER
Joe has spent all of his life playing music. Born into a musical family (his mother, Lucille Orden Leader, is a professional concert pianist), Joe and his first band won the “Daily Telegraph Young Jazz Awards” aged sixteen. He went on to study music at London’s Guild Hall school of Music and then at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Joe’s first class honours degree in Music Technology from LCMM enabled him to produce his own debut album and subsequent EP’s & Singles.
As a D’Addario sponsored artist, with over 100,000 fans on Facebook, Joe’s debut album, Seductive Sax, has 135 global radio plays per week and reached the Top 20 in the US Jazz charts. His incredible career has taken him all over the world, performing on stage with such greats as Eros Ramazzotti, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Stephen Gately, Pharrell Williams, Joss Stone, Sandie Shaw, Beverley Knight, Dave Koz, Gerald Albright and Mindi Abair.
When he is not seducing fans across the world with his saxophone, Joe can be found practicing Aikido, a Japanese martial art in which he has a 2nd Degree Black Belt. Both, says Joe, help to focus mind, body and soul on his art.
‘A bright spark on the UK smooth jazz scene. Joe shines like the brightest of stars. Do not miss the opportunity to see this up and coming saxophone colossus. Jazztastic !’ – Alex Lloyd, ex-Head of ‘Live’ at Jazz FM.
“Joe Leader comes on to the instrumental music scene with a fresh approach and point of view on this new project. A great saxophonist for sure, but also a wonderful story-teller with his songwriting and ability to deliver a melody. “ – Dave Koz
‘RITE OF PASSAGE’ will be available to download on iTunes & Amazon from 6th March 2017.
