"Ghost In The City" is about knowing darkness can be a strength and accepting the fact that we all carry some, whether we are conscious of it or not. That horrifying thought to some, is my grace, as it brings us closer together.
I traveled all over Western New York to work with a bunch of amazing musicians as this music evolved over the last year. Some to just jam with as I learned where the songs were going. Every note from those sessions remain a part of me, floating in the rooms and neighborhoods they were played in. Hence the title "Ghost In The City".
If you had anything to do with The Leones in the past year whether it was listening to a song, coming to a show, playing with us, supporting us in our Kickstarter campaign, inviting us to play at your venue or home, or stopping at the sidewalk to listen while we played a song in our garage, we just wanted to say thank you. We consider all of you, family.
It's also about our love of horror movies and it's heroines.
