Adam Leonard has quietly – and noisily – tinkered at the edges of eccentric English folk, electronic music, and garage Artrock with Invaderband, issuing numerous albums, singles and EPs of original music to much critical acclaim via highly regarded boutique labels such as The Great Pop Supplement, Northwestern Recordings, Tectona Grandis, Polytechnic Youth, Castles In Space, Bibliotapes and The Dark Outside on formats including 7” vinyl, 10” vinyl, 12” vinyl, cassette & compact disc.

Despite maintaining a low profile, the debut Invaderband album was shortlisted for the 2017 Northern Ireland Music Prize Album of the Year alongside The Divine Comedy, Hanna Peel etc, and has garnered praise from BBC Radio 6Music’s Steve Lamacq and Gideon Coe with repeat plays on their national radio shows. In 2021 a second Invaderband album ‘Peter Gabriel’ was released and in 2022 Leonard’s electronic side project A Farewell To Hexes released the ‘Rendlesham’ album which was featured on The Quietus.

Adam is currently (2022) working on multiple projects, EPs and albums. For a more in-depth biography go HERE.
