San Antonio, Texas music artist, Leon Shannon, founded himself as a creative lyricist and songwriter with entertaining sounds and melodies early in his high school years. Since high school, he has steadily worked at his craft and growth as an artist.
He teamed up with his childhood friend and oath to pursue this childhood dream until they have reached their visions. His childhood friend is now owner of the music label Leon is currently signed to. Throughout these years, Leon’s journey has taken unexpected turns and experienced many challenges that altered the timing and publications of his projects. One very impactful challenge Leon has faced was being diagnosed with limb girdle muscular dystrophy in 2012. His ability to walk is limited and his muscular strength has weakened, but he has managed to find his higher purpose, beyond his flesh and image.
He is now bringing out another perspective of his life through his latest music, telling real life facts and experiences, while still keeping the catchy modern unique sound that is relevant today. You can hear all about his story in his latest self titled LP / debut album, “The Leon Shannon LP”.
