Emerging Artist Nominee for the 2018 Canadian Folk Music Awards, Mattie Leon is a singer/songwriter from Toronto whose music strikes a beautiful balance between Folk/R&B and Pop. 2017 saw the release of his latest offering, SIGNAL HILL; a 7-song collection of rhythmic Canadiana that Canadian Beats says is “Full of emotion and passion” and that “Mattie Leon is onto something brilliant”.
SIGNAL HILL has been gaining traction on Canadian College Radio since its release and in the last few years Mattie has had three songs receive national radio play (BOY, SO MUCH MORE WITH ME, JUST YOU). He has opened for national acts like Jared and The Mill and Scenic Route To Alaska, played showcases at Canadian Music Week, received an Arts Acclaim Award from The City of Brampton, toured to the East Coast (Summer of 2017) and has been featured/interviewed on CBC Radio 1’s Fresh Air and Humble and Fred.
With the momentum building off of his shows around Ontario and Quebec Mattie is quickly becoming an artist with promise on the Canadian musical landscape.
The new record, SIGNAL HILL, was funded in part by FACTOR and supported with a cross country tour in the summer of 2018.
