If you can picture a man in black jeans and sunglasses riding his motorcycle into the sunset with his dog and guitar strapped to his back, you can picture this soft-on-the-inside-scarred-on-the-cheeks singer-songwriter from Phoenix, Arizona. 
High in the mountains in Flagstaff, AZ he turned his childhood talent into solid gold skill and weird experiential repertoire, Leavy performs with a wicked laugh, drill sergeant focus, and no-shirk, hands-on mastery. This well-suits the wide-ranging compositions he writes for an eclectic folk arrangement...and all for the sake of love songs. Today he calls St. Louis home where he brings the same dedication, intensity, and love for music - certainly not without his puckish devil-may-care style.

Leavy is a tour de-force songwriter who burned into the Flagstaff folk-rock and songwriter scene in 2011. He quickly began booking shows throughout Arizona, from dive-bars to 1,000+ seat theaters, playing hundreds of shows throughout with such widely varying acts as the March Fourth Marching Band, Authority Zero's Jason DeVore, and Irish Pub legend, Tony Cummins.
