Come join us by the fireplace in L.I.C Bar's back room for a uniquely intimate night of some of Astoria's best acoustic music by Kyle Horn and Danny Leonard.
About the performers:
Kyle Horn is a New York City based fingerstyle guitarist who incorporates strong melodic riffs backed by percussive techniques that together form a very full and unique sound. He transforms his acoustic guitar into a multidimensional instrument that allows him to add sonically complex layers into his compositions that result in an aurally and visually captivating performance.
“Kyle is a fantastic guitar player with a great groove and musicality often lacking in young fingerstyle players. Be sure to check him out!” – Mike Dawes, CandyRat recording artist
“Kyle is a great guitarist who has developed his own sense of timing and compositional style” – Craig D’Andrea, CandryRat recording artist
Danny Leonard is a first generation American, born in New York City to an Israeli mother and Russian father. This blend of nationalities helped shape an eclectic musical palette from a very young age. Picking up guitar at 18 years old, the instrument was rarely neglected for the next several years. With influences ranging from jazz guitar to heavy metal, Danny strives to create something that very few people are doing in modern songwriting.
With an aim to create compositions interesting enough to listen to sans words, and lyrics that can be recited as poetry; no stone is left unturned in his process.
"DANNY LEONARD: SINGER, SONG WRITER…AND JUDO BLACK BELT!?" – Give Me Astoria
"IF YOU LISTEN TO DANNY LEONARD’S ACOUSTIC, FOLK MUSIC, A WAVE OF CALM AND SERENITY WILL COME OVER YOU. HIS SONGS ARE BUILT IN SUCH A WAY THAT YOU CAN’T HELP BUT UNWIND AND RELAX, LETTING YOUR MIND FLOATINTO THE MELODIES AND LYRICS." – Joe Marvilli, Queens Tribune
