Artist, actor, musician, and GRAMMY award winning producer, simply put, Leon Thomas can be best described as a diverse talent. He launched his career at the early age of 10 on Broadway by playing Young Simba in ‘The Lion King,’ and continued in numerous productions including ‘The Color Purple’ and ‘Caroline, or Change.’ Keeping a substantial career, Leon consistently meets major marks in the entertainment industry including winning a GRAMMY for best R&B album for ‘Love, Marriage, & Divorce’ by Toni Braxton and Babyface under his producer group name “The Rascals.” His imprint can be seen and heard in everyday occasions or just by turning on the TV, such as with the smash hit that he wrote, titled “Something New” by Zendaya featuring Chris Brown, which is the song played in recent Covergirl campaigns. Leon anticipates releasing his new single,“Favorite” with an EP to follow, under Priority Distribution. Whether he is acting in hit HBO shows like ‘Insecure’ or the highly acclaimed film ‘Detroit,’ playing instruments, writing and producing his own music, or writing and producing songs for artists like Post Malone, Ariana Grande, Syd the Kid, and Jessica Mauboy, Leon’s accomplishments validate his ethic, talent, and skill.
