Leon Harrison

Artist Musician,
Sydney, Australia
My name is Leon Harrison and music is my life. When I was little my Dad brought home the drum set from the school music department and after only a few minutes of beating the living shit out of it, I knew music would be in my life forever.

More recently, I have been the singer for rock band The Lazys. The road has always been challenging but for any aspiring rock band, Bon Scott’s lyrics should always echo in the psyche of your musical mind. It’s a long way to the top if you wana rock n roll! Over the past few years things have really began to heat up for The Lazys. The band took the plunge into the Canadian market and since May 2014 we have done two cross country tours with some of Canada’s leading bands (Danko Jones, The Trews, Big Wreck) recorded with some of the best the industry has to offer (GGGarth Richardson – Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chilli Peppers) landed a top 10 single ‘shake it like you mean it’ which was co written with Ian D’Sa of Billy Talent and have also developed an amazing team rich with managers, agents, publicists, publishers, labels, radio promotions etc etc.

Aside of performing I have also ran my own music event 3 years running on the Central Coast called The Reunion. The focus was on integrating local musicians with some of the best up and coming talent Australia has to offer. Acts I have had play The Reunion include, Something With Numbers, The Snow Droppers, Gay Paris, King Parrot, The Lazys, Claude Hay, Tropical Zombie, Ivy and many more.

I am a very honest person and this is reflected in what I do with my musical paths and direction. I believe in order for anything to be sustainable their needs to be a flourishing ecosystem where each component enhances and enriches the next. The music industry is no different.
