This week we have a crush on Sydney born singer-songwriter Michael Leonardi. Today he unveiled the intensely emotional acoustic version of recently released single “Haunting Me,” from his new EP Silhouette - set for release on Friday 30th April via Sugar Music.
An organic, soul stirring glance into the introspective mind of Michael Leonardi, the acoustic take on “Haunting Me” is evocatively beautiful. Brought to life by stunning vocal layers which echo after a slow built piano introduction, the track exhibits an extensive range of overarching talent and heedful execution.
Michael’s musical journey led him to become a citizen of the world, living in New York, London, Berlin and Milan, the influence of COVID bringing him back to Sydney last year. His life experiences away from home and the degenerative eye disease Michael was diagnosed with at a young age, retinitis pigmentosa, has lead to influence his songwriting with introspectiveness and vulnerability. Matched with his deep, expressive sounding vocals and powerful production, it creates a captivating result.
This is just the beginning of what the wonderful Michael Leonardi has in store for 2021, and we look forward to future releases.
