Fast forward a few years and the budding musician was putting covers on Soundlcoud, which was when he first started to consider music as more than just a hobby. “My dad is a musician, so it always felt like it was something that could happen, but it wasn’t until I was 16 a or so and doing covers that I made a conscious decision that I wanted to do it.”
“Growing up I don’t think I necessarily fit into any category I was the sportsman who sang, played guitar and skated which surprised people,” he says. “But I don’t want to force myself to be anything, or put myself or my music into a box, I want my music to feel as organic as possible, to just filter through me.”
Le Saint’s first two EPs were a period of growth for the musician, before releasing his first single “4AM” from his upcoming record. Atmospheric and moody, “4AM” blends Le Saint’s R&B vocals with heady wailing guitar solos, electronica and a healthy dose of dark-tinged soul. Melding genres like this can be tricky terrain for musicians, but Le Saint makes it seem easy – his past influences crashing together to create a debut single that is nothing short of epic.
