LEADR Makes The Dreamiest Music

Emily Treadgold #6, Features Leave a Comment

LEADR has the most amazing voice. The first time I heard his music, I wasn’t even sure he was human. Naturally, I knew I had to talk to him about his distinct sound.

I tell him his sound is so dreamy and whimsical and LEADR counters with, “I’m a Pisces and those descriptive words definitely define me.” He says it was trial and error. “I tried so many genres. I even tried rap, but that didn’t work!” he laughs.

“I’m all about feeling and this direction just felt good to me. I want to make good music,” he tells me. LEADR emphasizes creating music to make a difference. “I want to inspire people to dream bigger and reach higher. I would also love to see more Asians in the forefront of western music and entertainment,” he says.

When it comes to songwriting he creates a beat first and everything falls into place. He tells me, “I love my voice recorder on my phone. If I hear a melody or a cool sound, I record it. Some of my tracks have samples from my iPhone that I’ve recorded.”

As a kid, LEADR had a fascination with Peter Pan. “I love the quote from him, 'All it takes is faith and trust.' because it’s true with anything we want to do.” He says, “It was clear with what I wanted to do with my life. Music fulfills my soul.”

He says his best advice to anyone is simply, “Take care of yourself.” He continues and says, "Make sure you are happy, eating healthy and living your best life. That ties into my good relationship advice - if you aren’t happy with yourself, you won’t be happy in any relationship.”

    March 25 can be noted as a pivotal date in my life. No, it isn't my birthday. For all the 1D fangirls out there, it was the shock of the century when Zayn Malik left the band. As a Zayn girl, my heart broke into a million pieces. I think this hit me harder than any actual breakup. All was forgiven, though, when he coincidentally released his solo album that same day a year later. Also, don't make me choose as I love Z and the band equally. I'm currently in Justin Timberlake's hometown of Memphis, Tennessee working as a personal trainer. If I'm not at the gym, you can more than likely find me at a concert. Feel free to find me on social media. I love meeting fellow fangirls! Twitter : samfonggg, Instagram : samantha_fong, Snapchat : samanthafong
