With their powerful voice, introspective lyrics and emotional songs, Leroy Macqueen is quickly making a name for themselves. Their live performances are a thrilling mix of undeniable charisma, infectious energy, and off-the-cuff humour that leaves audiences wanting more. Born with a musical passion, Leroy learned guitar and songwriting in their early teenage years. They rose to fame as part of the punk band Gooch Palms, gaining a devoted global following with their energetic and rowdy shows. However, after a decade of success, Leroy decided to embark on a new musical journey. During the Melbourne lockdowns of 2020 and 2021, they rediscovered their love for classic Americana folk music and embraced the genre’s timeless charm. Now, Leroy has reinvented themselves as a brooding balladeer, combining their melodramatic baritone with the spirit of punk rock. Their country sound, reminiscent of iconic bands like The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac, is infused with a dynamic and electrifying energy that sets them apart from the rest.
Leroy’s songwriting is deeply personal and honest, exploring themes of self-acceptance, dreams, and the realities of a life on the road. Drawing inspiration from their years of touring the world and living in America, they craft songs that delve into the highs and lows of nomadic living. From tales of heavy drinking to the mental challenges of the music industry, Leroy’s lyrics beautifully capture the essence of the travelling troubadour lifestyle.
