This week's #IndieArtistSpotlight goes to a very talented, authentic, and socially conscious artist based in Oakland, California, who goes by the name of Leair. Leair is an emerging singer-songwriter and producer who developed a passion for music after taking a music class in high school. Within a year from discovering his musical passion, "he learned how to play the piano, the guitar, read and write sheet music, and also how to write poetry." Leair taught himself how to sing through purchasing singing lesson kits online as a school project.
Leair defines his musical sound as, "a powerful mixture of R&B, Soul, Acoustic Soul, Neo Soul, and Hip-Hop." He also accredits artist such as 2pac, John Legend, Musiq Soulchild, Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, and Tony Toni Tone to name a few. With his gift of music, Leair's overall mission is to use his "lyrics, melodies, composition, and productions" to reach not only the hearts but minds of listeners to provoke them to "Feel" again.
Check out Leair's latest release 'You' (which can be found on all digital platforms) below. Be sure to follow him on social media!
