Akron has produced some great musicians, with some artists reaching critical acclaim and commercial success. This can prove frustrating for local musicians who seek a strong, close-knit musical community in Akron where artists of all genres support each other and collaborate to make everybody more successful.
One of our own, Damon Leon, recently hit the stage at E.J. Thomas Hall with Lyfe Jennings and Conya Doss. Leon, who has been singing his whole life, says that this recent opportunity has renewed his love for the art form. Leon is a lifelong Akron resident, who studied vocal performance at The University of Akron.
He is currently working on an album that he hopes to release later this summer, and he is also part of a promotional company that is setting up showcases to pair a local artists with nationally touring acts.
Leon is an R&B singer with a distinct baritone voice and a passion for music. He is also looking to give back to the Akron music scene when given the chance. For more information, visit www.reverbnation.com/damonleon, or find him at Facebook and Twitter at twitter.com/DamonRealRnB.
