SERVANT LEADER IS THE SOLO PROJECT OF LEIGH OATES CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED VOCALIST WITH XILLA, ORDER OF VOICES, SOLDIERFIELD, RISE TO ADDICTION AND NINEDENINE.
LEIGH RELEASES 'RAISED BY WOLVES - PART 2' ON MAY 7TH 2021 - THIS COMES A YEAR AFTER PART 1 WAS RELEASED TO GREAT SUCCESS, ENDING UP IN TOP 5 LISTS OF 2020 MUCH TO LEIGH'S DELIGHT AND GARNERING SOME GREAT REVIEWS:
"Reminds me of the old Alice In Chains...I want more and more and more and more..."
"Oates has a killer voice perfect for this style. He has range, but he also has a lot of depth and emotion. I would compare him to 90’s singers like Layne Stayley and Chris Cornell, he doesn’t sound exactly like either, more of a mix of the two"...
"As those rhythms continue to bite, grooves and melodic enticement is woven around the distinctive and ever magnetic tones of Oates"...
"Hard Rock with an alternative soul
Overall, it sounds like a mix of Motley Crue with Alice in Chains, Crashdiet with Soundgarden, or John Bush's Anthrax with Stone Temple Pilots"...
"I WANTED TO RELEASE THIS MATERIAL BETWEEN MY BAND ENDEAVOURS AND SHARE IT WITH YOU, THIS IS JUST MY TAKE ON THINGS, ALL ME, I'VE TAKEN ON ALL THE SONGWRITING AND PLAYING DUTIES AS WELL AS THE PRODUCTION - JUST A GREAT FUN PROJECT FOR A MUSICIAN! IF IT MAKES ME RICH THEN GREAT IF NOT ITS BEEN THE BEST FUN TRYING..."
LET'S ROCK! ACTUALLY LET'S DOUBLE ROCK AS PART 2 MAKES IT'S ENTRANCE!! Leigh's Discography:
