"Been knocked down never been knocked out… Never been the type to let another person limit me. Shooting for the stars and this music is my liberty"
Anishinaabe poet, singer/songwriter and MC Leonard Sumner weaves an enticing roots-blues-rap-country fusion that communicates histories, life lessons and philosophy. Unblinkingly honest, Sumner’s lyrics are defiant yet vulnerable, giving voice to situations and people. His songs and stories are both illuminating and unsettling; provoking his audience with an unswerving personal-is-political stance. He beautifully turns anger and hurt into understanding and familiarity. TLG/CV
