Live instrumentation, empowering lyrics and incredible musicianship. We can’t wait for you to be able to hear songs from LEONN that you can personalize and send as gifts.

LEONN added: “Every song has its meaning and has its audience, and some people may like something about a song, but now it can relate specifically to them, bringing the song even closer to the person… which is what music is supposed to do!” LEONN’s customizable songs will be ready for you to personalize and send to your friends, family and loved-ones soon… in the meantime, head on over to LEONN’s official website to hear more.
