classics like The Five Heartbeats, Above the Rim, and The Temptations.
However, it’s about more than one love for Leon. The actor has also been
flexing his musical muscles as the front man and songwriter for his reggae
band Leon & The Peoples. Leon & The Peoples, an International Reggae and
World Music Award (IRAWMA) nominee for their CD, “The Road Less Traveled”
and one of New York's hottest rising bands has made a lot of buzz these

sophmore LP and first for Spectra Music Label. Before heading into the
studio, the band was on the road for many dates including Aspen Jazz Fest
'14 (along side FUN, Carrie Underwood, Earth Wind & Fire, One Republic,
etc.) The band completed a 38 city North American tour with reggae greats

“For The Love of It Tour”. Many sold out venues included House of Blues
in LA, Chicago and San Diego; Hard Rock Live in Orlando; The Docks in
Toronto; BB Kings in NYC; and The Roxy in Boston and most recently the
2011 Aspen Jazz Fest. The band has been featured on BET’s 106 & Park,
