Prinz Leo is a songwriter originally from Salzburg (Austria) and resident in London, where he is currently preparing his debut album, a collection of songs that has already taken him to perform at London Marathon (UK), in Vienna (AT), Bern (CH) and even in Cannes (F).

Indie folk songs with influences that go from Bon Iver to Jeff Buckley. What makes Prinz Leo’s music recognisable is the use of looped double bass bow on his electric guitar and the heartfelt emotion behind every word. Characterised by captivating melodies, soothing vocals and the embrace of guitars, his music invites listeners into a world of tranquil intimacy that offers an oasis of serenity amidst the chaos of the modern world.

Prinz Leo (Leonhard Wimmer) started making music when he was just 7. Writing songs became his way of coping with losing his grandfather. Now, through his music, he hopes to offer others the same kind of comfort and healing that music gave him.
