Pear O'Legs Records at West St Kitchen: Leonie Evans and Katherine Abbott
Pear O’Legs Records is back in Bristol and we’re kicking off the autumn season with a bang!
Leonie Evans was born and raised on the edge of South East London and Kent. She’s a multi-instrumentalist, singer songwriter and occasional session vocalist, teacher and event organiser who has been performing since the age of five and has never stopped.
She performs exquisite dreamy, jazzy and unclassifiable songs with her rare voice. Performing around the world with many other musicians, collaborating and collecting with her ever growing musical family.
Her first “real” solo album, Collaborations Volume 1, sees the perfect execution of a wonderfully spontaneous Leonie Evans kind of idea. One day she decided she was going to travel around England with her guitar and rucksack, visiting some of her favourite bands & recording a single song with each. So she did.
Now Volume 2 is on the horizon, so keep your eyes peeled for that beauty!
