The Leading Guy @ Botanique

In the moment an artist is more famous than his own pieces, he risks to fail. Songs are the only thing that count for The Leading Guy. As a songwriter, able to tell something unique and spontaneous although painful, he searches for silence so he can better interpret the sound of what is precious. Great attention is given to the melody, which resembles folk music and the need to tell and keep amongst its own verses, characters, stories and memories which otherwise would risk to fade away. TLG looks after the tune and his songs sound like “do you fancy to join me?”, like a journey through folk music. We always need to know stories from the countryside, listening to those who can’t talk. TLG plays those memories, those absences. Singing in an essential and direct way, TLG is spreading his softly, clanky voice around. The train stops whenever he needs to play a story for us. He must alight when he identifies that silent conversation that needs to be played. He listens to people building up an honest relationship with them, exchanges whatever he thinks in that moment, and always shares his thoughts. The stage is his home. The stage is his place. The stage is where his words become melody. His life lies in those lyrics, without brutality. The voice and the guitar are two of the vehicles he is using to tell us something with extreme depth.
