Comes Crashing In, the latest release from Life Leone, masterfully incorporates the heavy bass and down-tuned guitars of the Desert Rock sound that was scratched into his soul as a young up & coming musician in California.
But like any true artist, Life Leone and bandmate, Jeff Halbert, have found a way to refocus the Desert Rock tones they were familiar with, into a hookier, more accessible hybrid “Desert Pop” sound.
Life Leone has managed to pull off the tricky task of creating a sound that is instantly recognizable for any fan of the Desert Rock sound pioneered by bands like Slo Burn, Kyuss, Hermano, and Fu Manchu, while still coming across as a totally fresh take on the original vibe.
On a recent tour stop in Denver, I had the opportunity to sit down with Jeff and Life, to discuss the music of Life Leone, the band, as well as the interesting personal experiences that have shaped Life Leone, the man.
