LEOGUN Landing Page

Written by
leogun lp main image
Leogun are a three-piece rock band from Southeast London, fronted by Tommy Smith. Signing their record deal earlier in May, they are the first band to sign to legendary Yamaha Corporation of America’s new North American label Yamaha Entertainment Group. Leogun spent a few months in Nashville, Tennesse recording their debut album with Yamaha Entertainment Group. The album was recorded with Yamaha Producer Chris Gero and GRAMMY Award winning engineer Bryan Lennox, at Blackbird Studio’s, in the room where Kings of Leon and The White Stripes have recorded many of their hits. The bands roots are in rock and they have a hard-hitting current style. It only seemed right to record the whole album on analogue tape, which is almost unheard of in this age of drum machines, auto-tune and tablet touch screen recording.

This past year has seen Leogun playing festivals in Sweden, Denmark and across England, including Sonisphere and Bestival. And a UK tour and shows across the United States; from 4 shows at the acclaimed industry based SXSW festival to performing in LA with Platinum selling, Grammy winning artists.

Leogun have been described by Dom Fairbanks Weston (endorsement/sponsorship for Foo Fighters, Madonna, The Killers etc) as ‘potentially the next biggest band in the world’ and been praised by Bullet for My Valentine (Pagent) for sounding like “all the greatest bands from the 70s, the music I grew up, but it still sounds new… how the hell have they done that?” Tommy met Dom backstage at an Eagles of Death Metal gig, where he gave him a demo, and after hearing the songs Dom went on to introduce the band to their manager. The band are managed by Rocket Music Management (Elton John, Ed Sheeran, James Blunt).

Leogun’s debut single is due for worldwide release July 31, 2012.


"What stands out is the incredible sound created by this three piece with each musical element rationed out perfectly – sound, rhythm, unexpected breaks an incisive chorus'. With a blend of melodic, in your face rock they hunger to infect their listeners with an addictive and accessible sound." Jar Music

 "The band weaves a tapestry of blues, indie and garage rock. Recognised as one of the UK’s best rock bands by the NME and Fly Magazine - They will captivate any audience with their music, energy and showmanship. They are a band with greatness written all over them and their performances are electrifying and should not be missed." Music4 Life Festival

"Leogun are a 3 piece from London, they play their rock hard, in the way Led Zeppelin did in the early seventies. Lead singer Tommy's voice is full of that Plant'esq style that makes you think you've been transported back to the early days of heavy metal. Watch out for them they will rock you hard" Festivals For All music review

"Mad Dog are a superb live act, the album is eagerly anticipated, catch them in these smaller venues while you can, once the album is released its going to be insane." Hughes, Music Week

Jon McLaughlin

Written by

Speaking from his home in the Midwest on a beautiful spring day, singer-songwriter Jon McLaughlin would strike you as a pretty relaxed guy. As he recounts his numerous accomplishments without any bravado, it would be understandable for McLaughlin to feel like he could coast a little as he prepares to release his third album, Promising Promises (Razor & Tie). Case in point: An aptitude for piano discovered as a child, submersion in all school related music programs, college to continue his study of music, cultivating a big online following in the early days of social media, scoring a label deal at age 21, inking big song placements on television and movies, a performance at the Academy Awards, selling 170k albums, debuting at #1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart - pretty heady stuff for a guy from Indiana who just wanted to be able to play like Billy Joel someday.

Todd Alsup

Written by

Smart. Fresh. Colorful. Classic. These are just a few words that have been used to describe downtown-NYC pop/soul sensation Todd Alsup. With a potent, powerful voice, virtuosic keyboard skills and a songbook chock full of potential hits, Alsup is poised to make himself a household name. He is a singer/songwriter who weaves good old-fashioned pop songs and delivers them from the gut, rejecting gimmicks in favor of craft and authenticity.

LEOGUN - [leo-gun]

1) A three-piece band from London, surging with a mix of blues, soul and a whole lotta rock & roll. With "bite your head off" chorus' and a hunger to groove, LEOGUN mixes the musicality and heart bleeding emotion of The Raconteurs with all the sexual prowess and break-neck attitude of Queens of The Stone Age.

2) Believed to be a were-lion, LEOGUN was a half man, half lion. 

"I can say this without hesitation, I have never looked more forward to the release of a full-length album from a debut artist, than I am this one" READ MORE

"Oh, Leogun, you sexy, proper, cluster of blazing eroticism!" READ MORE

Greg Sczebel

Some have called him a “white Stevie Wonder”. Others refer to him as a “young Elton John”, or “Justin Timberlake-meets-Michael Bublé”. But ask any Greg Sczebel fan to describe his music and the response will be unanimous – he’s not easily pigeonholed…and this is a good thing.
