On this episode, I am joined by my good friends Alex & Scott of the London Rock duo LEONTAS. We go way back and used to gig together all the time with Flavour Nurse, they’re really great guys full of talent, releasing a lot of fantastic music alongside their highly entertaining live shows. We discuss the band’s story from the very beginning up until the present day, breaking down their production process and getting a look into the meanings behind their songs – as well as addressing the challenges and virtues of making music as a two piece.

Check out the bands website to find and follow them on social media here.
