Leon’s intense passion for music at the young age of 20 has allowed him to grow into quite an amazing recording artist. Thomas plays five instruments, sings, writes, and produces all of his music. MTV recently praised Leon’s production on Ariana Grande’s debut album after Thomas earned credits on five of the songs. Prior to this in August 2012, Leon released his highly anticipated mixtape entitled “Metro Hearts.” The lead single “Forever” instantly went viral along with a beautifully shot music video to accompany.

It was this “Metro Hearts” mixtape that opened up an opportunity to tour with Big Time Rush and Cody Simpson.
