Leo Sayer almost needs no introduction. He is held in great esteem as a live performer and recording artist by all age groups – from 6 to 60. This is as much due to his appearing famously with the Wiggles on DVD, CD and television as it is a by-product of his 40-year showbiz career. His concert history is legendary…

From the Olympic Stadium in Moscow, through Central Park, New York, the Greek Theatre, Los Angeles, the Las Vegas Hilton, Wembley Arena, Hammersmith Apollo and the Royal Albert Hall in London to the State Theatre in Sydney and the Hamer Hall in Melbourne, Leo Sayer has played the lot!

Add to this the fact that he writes almost all of his own material and you can see why Leo is the consummate musical act.

Gerard Hugh Sayer (to give him his original name) was born in 1948 at Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex, England. After studying graphic design at Art College, he worked in his late teens and 20’s as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator in London, playing blues harmonica by night in folk clubs.

He met co-writer David Courtney in 1971 and shortly afterwards, with a name change from Gerard to Leo, signed a management contract with ex 60’s pop star Adam Faith.

In the international music charts there have been more than twenty top ten singles and five top ten albums in Leo Sayer’s illustrious recording career. Add to this the hits written for Cliff, Three Dog Night, Tina Turner, Gene Pitney, Jennifer Warnes and Dolly Parton. It proves his prowess as an internationally acclaimed and talented songwriter.

Now a citizen of Australia, where he is based, Leo is busier and in demand more than ever. Last year was his 40th anniversary and to celebrate he completed a tour of 58 venues in all states during 2011. There’s no sign of him slowing down either. At 63, his energy is palpable. He is planning a new studio album for next year, along with concert tours of Korea, the UK and New Zealand, and he has also created a new Christmas song: “Coming Home For Christmas”, which was released on the Myer ‘Spirit Of Christmas’ album this festive season.

Leo is a busy man who loves his life and work, and lives for pleasing audiences and music lovers around the globe, totally determined that whatever happens – “The Show Must Go On”.
