11-10-2014 LEON OF ATHENS

Mikar The Vipar

MARLOW: Christ Church URC

SAT 11TH OCT, 2014 7:30pm

Leon of Athens may sound like Shakespeare, but this rising indie-pop star is writing his own heroic tale. His debut album 'Futrue' made headlines in Greece and in the USA, in the New York Times when he went from tiny venues to playing to 10,000 people in a few months, and was even invited to appear on Greece's equivalent of "The Daily Show".

In 2014 he moved to London and released his second album 'Global', which was produced by Tony Doogan (Mogwai, Belle & Sebastian) and recorded in New York at Grammy winner Dave Fridmann's studio (MGMT).

"Timoleon Veremis has mastered the fine art of horn-smattered, electronica-tickled melodic party
pop."- NME

"brainy MGMT-style pop inspired by Bernardo Bertolucci" - Guardian

""In this place where tragedy was invented, the song was joyful and sadly cathartic" - New York Times

Supporting Leon of Athens will be local singer-songwriter Mikar-The-Vipar. This Bucks/London based Hip Hop/R'n'B/Afrobeat artist has established a fan base up and down the country and as far away as Sweden, Hungary and Africa! Mikar was born in Sierra Leone and has always been inspired by his roots.
