Hailing from Toronto, Mattie Leon is a singer/songwriter whose music strikes a beautiful balance between Folk/R&B and Pop. 2019 saw the release of “WHEN LOVE IS STRONG / CAUGHT UP”, a two song single that returned Leon to the R&B roots he cultivated on his debut EP, TERRACE. It was the first release since 2017’s SIGNAL HILL; a 7-song collection of rhythmic Canadiana that landed Leon a nomination for Emerging Artist at the 2018 Canadian Folk Music Awards. Canadian Beats said the record is "Full of emotion and passion" and that "Mattie Leon is onto something brilliant".
As his music continues to get played on Canadian College Radio it’s also been featured on CBC shows like KIM’S CONVENIENCE and NURSES. In the last few years Mattie has had songs receive national radio play, has opened for national acts like Whitehorse, Scenic Route To Alaska, and Wild Rivers, played showcases at Canadian Music Week, received an Arts Acclaim Award from The City of Brampton, toured from coast to coast (Summer of 2018) and has been featured/interviewed on countless radio shows and podcasts including CBC Radio 1's Fresh Air and Humble and Fred.
With momentum building Mattie is quickly becoming an artist with promise on the Canadian musical landscape. Recently signed by Inside Pocket Music, Mattie is working on a new EP that will be released via Inside Pocket/Warner Music Canada.
