Leopold And His Fiction
Leopold And His Fiction
Naked, stripped down and aching with adrenaline is the rawness of Leopold and his Fiction. A revolving group of friends led by Daniel James (lead vocal/guitar), their essential make up sprouted from collaborations made on the road in the whirlwind cycle of touring. From San Francisco to LA to Austin various musical adventures had come and gone, until James found a common vision in the musicians he'd met along the way. Originally formed as an outlet for Daniel to exercise his virtues gained from years living in Detroit, Leopold and his Fiction absorbed pieces of the Motown catalog along with the protopunk resonance of Iggy's Stooges and molded them into a personal version of the rock 'n' roll dream. It's as if they, themselves, are connected directly into an electrical outlet. "The band elicits a power when it's time to perform that is unable to be harnessed in any other medium short of a fist fight," says James. "Whether that's on stage or in a recording studio it's almost hard to contain it. It's more life than I've ever felt before." It was that sonic fever that landed the group recent support slots for The Cult and ZZ Top. For the past year Leopold and his Fiction have been working with Grammy-nominated producer Chris "Frenchie" Smith (The Datsuns, Slayer, Jet, The Dandy Warhols, etc.) in recording and capturing a captivating musical journey that is as relentless as it is inspiring.

Recently the Phoenix New Times named Fairy Bones "Best Local Band" in 2015. They called their music one of the "10 best things" heard in Phoenix in 2013 and 2014. Java Magazine says, "Chelsey’s voice is a goddamned sonic spectrum of wonder."

Fairy Bones formed in early 2013 when singer/songwriters Chelsey Louise (vocals) and Robert Ciuca (guitar) teamed up with brothers Matthew Foos (drums) and Ben Foos (bass) and combined their talents to create a style of rock and roll all their own.

In 2013, they released their self-titled EP on 80/20 Records, Echo Magazine said their first single, ‘Like Like,’ "should be on everybody’s shortlist for best single of the year." In 2015, they successfully crowdfunded their debut full length, “Dramabot” (80/20 Records), recorded and produced by Bob Hoag (The Format, The Ataris).

Fairy Bones has played 200+ shows since 2013 including an official CMJ Showcase, toured the Southwest extensively, and opened for Alien Ant Farm, Mother Mother, Kongos, PYYRAMIDS, and Hell or Highwater. They will share the stage with Beck, Kid Cudi, Animal Collective, Gary Clark Jr. and more in 2016 at the McDowell Mountain Music Festival. Their singles have notably been spun on KWSS, KUKQ, and NPR.
