York-based singer-songwriter Joe Leo began writing his soulful emotional songs in his early teens. He has always seen the songwriting process as somewhat therapeutic. His new single “Milestones” has a great soft rock feel and an excellent pop hook. It makes me think of George Michael had he taken a less dance and funk-driven direction and rocked out more. I can also sense a Moody Blues influence in the tune too. “Milestones” is overflowing with soulful, yearning vocals and the musicianship is first class. Joe has networked with many highly talented musicians since relocating to Yorkshire after the break up of his former band Mighty Dreams. Joe is a solo artist but he has also created KAYA band containing a collective of musicians he collaborates with, which he describes as “like a carousel of the best musicians around York” On the evidence of “Milestones” Joe is definitely one to watch!
