Kiran Leonard is a 22-year-old musician from Saddleworth, Greater Manchester. Debut album proper Bowler Hat Soup (2014) and follow-up Grapefruit (2016) were both recorded at home, with Kiran playing virtually every instrument himself. Derevaun Seraun (2017), a concept album in five movements inspired by five pieces of literature and arranged for piano, strings and voice, was an ambitious departure from his usual sound. 

In October for last year, Kiran returned with the acclaimed album WESTERN CULTURE released on Moshi Moshi.
