Leoncia Flynn aka Leonheart is a musician and artist based in Munich & London. She has a BSc in Anthropology and a Masters in Art Psychotherapy and has used these disclipines to create music and lyrics that reflect these subjects; our place in the world..where we’ve come from, identity, gender roles and stereotypes, social and political themes etc.
She plays acoustic & electric guitar a mix of gentle folk, jazz inspired chord explorations to more heavier bass-driven rhythms often working with different musicians & projects. Her latest musical collaboration is with producer & bassist Felix McIntosh and is part of an ongoing anthropological/arts project based around time called Time OUT..here she explores stopping it and making it and the sonic results became Smash Up the Clocks and were described by a fellow collaborator as anthro-synth-rock. This was picked up by Tom Robinson on his Introducing show on BBC Radio 6. Follow the thread here..www.smashuptheclocks.com
