Leo Napier Drops Sonic Masterpiece ‘The Philly Gritz EP’

Hailing from the golden shores of California, Leo Napier unveils his latest EP, ‘Philly Gritz EP’. His music is dynamically rich and uniquely original, and the EP marks his musical comeback, showcasing his musicianship, songwriting, lyricism, vocal dynamism, and showmanship on par with 20th-century music giants.

After a near-death experience in August 2023, Leo Napier has come back from the dead, revitalised beyond recognition, and possessing an unwavering focus and resolve. Every note is a chapter, every melody is a verse, and he challenges us to face our own lives and accept the complex, wonderful adventure that is being human with every enthralling refrain.

With his pen, microphone, and sense of humour, Leo Napier shows how an artist can fortify himself in times of vulnerability and give the listener a peek into his personal struggles through his detached delivery of personal baggage. His rich voice tones, heartfelt plot, and intriguing production show off his promise as a budding musician.

In this increasingly manufactured world, Leo Napier’s deep soulfulness, exhibited through his smoky, barrel-aged vocals, elegant piano playing, and melodic arrangements, combined with his frequently sardonic, humorous, and self-deprecating lyrics, provide a welcome lift.

Commenting on the release, “One of the first things that hit me upon regaining consciousness a few days after the operation was that, had I died, I would have taken all of my unheard music to the grave with me. I’ve dedicated most of my life to this craft and these songs. They’re the fragments that comprise the mosaic that is my identity, my soul. From now on, every song I’ve written is going back to the people I wrote them for. These songs are for you, as much as they are for me. My second life began after my heart stopped and restarted on August 18th, 2023. My career begins in earnest on April 30th, 2024, with the release of the ‘Philly Gritz EP.’”

Leo Napier’s musical ability is showcased throughout the EP, along with his genuineness, passion, and dedication to his own artistic growth. ‘Philly Gritz EP’, which fits in perfectly with his whole musical career to date, showcases his creativity in full.
