Kings of Carlisle (AKA Russell Leedy) is a singer-songwriter and producer of multiple musical genres, including rock, soul, jazz, and others. Leedy has lived and performed in both California and Florida with various projects, and is currently working in his home state of Pennsylvania. This current project was formed with Leedy’s late best friend and fellow musician in 2018, and Leedy is carrying on with the project in his memory.
A tribute to the musicians of Miami who influenced him, the single Show Me The Light is equal parts fun and smooth. A classic story of a longing attraction with a particular Latin flair, the energy in this track is high and the beat is driving throughout. Leedy’s voice is well-suited to the track – warm and nuanced, with just a bit of grittiness. The percussion breakdown at 2:18 is a nice touch, as is the stunningly complex flamenco-style guitar riff that follows. Top it off with powerful brass interludes and an earworm of a hook, and this track is a recipe for success.
Show Me The Light is a catchy, danceable number that truly showcases the years of experience and skill Kings of Carlisle is bringing to the table. Stream this electrifying single for yourself below.
