Energetic and Soulful:

Leon’s diverse range of influences includes Kings of Leon, The Killers, Greenday, Reef, Tom Petty, Mumford & Sons, The Kooks, Neil Young, Otis Redding, Bob Dylan, Oasis, The Zutons and many more. This has no doubt helped him develop a vast and rich creative repertoire. However, the way Leon translates everything across to the listener is the real defining factor, giving his music a unique edge over tracks by other upcoming singer-songwriters of similar genres.

Moreover, most fans recommend watching Oxenham play live to truly capture the resonance and overall message conveyed through his music. What makes him really stand out is his attention to detail regarding the sound quality and technical aspects of the music, without losing any of the original raw soul and energy.

Leon’s tracks are melodic and catchy, yet very intimate and understated, with tasteful harmonies and hooks. Most of his lyrics tend to have a deep meaning and are beautifully descriptive. On the whole, his music is very personal, yet easy to relate to. This has a lot to do with his witty, insightful lyrics, adding tremendous depth and edginess to each track.
