Leo Benjamin

Leo-B was brought up in South West London surrounded by an eclectic mix of music including Classical, Gospel, Funk, Pop & more. From a young age Leo has been playing keyboards and piano in church. During his mid teens to late 20’s Leo became Musical Director in two churches and played in several concerts featuring Gospel artists such as The Wades, amongst others. After being introduced to the recording studio environment, Leo’s love and appreciation of musical textures begun to present itself more creatively with the use of his own voice.

Since then he has been singing and dancing professionally for over 8 years and having recorded with Osibisa on a single with Sting, shared the R&B and Pop stages with the likes of Beverly Knight, Don- E. Omar, Junior Giscombe and more than FIVE former members of The Drifters, including Ray Lewis and Roy G Hemmings as a dancer, choreographer, backing and lead singer, Leo is now launching his solo career in the circuit of touring Motown and R&B entertainers with his 1-man show, Leo-B, The Soul of Motown & R&B.

With strong musical influences such greats as James Brown, Michael Jackson, Prince & Al Green, his performance radiates with a passionate conviction. Leo has also been nicknamed “The Pocket Rocket” because of his energetic dance choreography & fun personality.

Specially chosen songs for each (45, 60 and 75 minute) set, Leo fuses modern R&B based hits with a timeless collection of old Soul favourite classics.

Adding a dynamic awareness Leo delivers what both the clients and crowds want and ensures a fun and professional performance at every venue, every time!
