I had the pleasure of meeting LEO37 in the first year I got involved with Reel Asian as a volunteer on their Special Events Committee. Leo was one of the musician/artists performing at the Canadian Moviemakers Party that I was helping the festival organize. Since then, Saskatchewan-born Leo has settled in Taiwan, continued to tour across Asia and Canada and recently spearheaded Taiwan’s newest cultural hub #DYWM (Do You Want More?), which has resulted in an apparel collaboration with Taiwan’s leader in street couture, Remix.
We last blogged about Leo’s music video You & The Nite here, a project that project together familiar Reel Asian faces like filmmaker Joyce Wong, and animators Lillian Chan and Howie Shia. He’s back now with another single – 3 Words – featuring production from acclaimed Taiwanese soul/jazz hip-hop producer Tower Da Funkmasta and vocals from Taiwan’s answer to D’Angelo, Pezen. Check out the 3 Words video here…you may even recognize the local Toronto sites.
