Mattie Leon, the fantastic Toronto based singer-songwriter with a wonderful catchy and soulful folk/pop style joins us in the studio on Episode 477 of Folk Roots Radio for a chat about his music and three live songs. Later in the hour, we also squeeze in his fabulous new single “Silver Line”. As usual, we wrap up the episode with more of the great new music we’ve received, and this time we hear from Bobtown, Dori Freeman, Ellen Froese, The Dreadnoughts, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer, Jerry Leger, The Hearts and Miranda Mulholland. Check out the full playlist below.
Mattie Leon released his well-received debut “Terrace” in 2015, followed by a couple of small releases in 2016. His very well-received seven song collection “Signal Hill” from 2017 really elevated his profile, and earned Mattie a nomination for New/Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2018 Canadian Folk Music Awards.
Mattie Leon joined us in the Folk Roots Radio studio with support from Mike Leon and Nelson Sobral on backing vocals.
