The Cowardly Leon emerged as the solo acoustic project of singer-songwriter Christopher Thornton. After moving to Austin in 2004, he developed his songwriting as a means of expressing the longing found in everyday life; songs which were later compiled for his digitally released album “Ghosts in the Attic”. Spending the next few years honing his repertoire at local open mics, the songs evolved beyond a means for personal growth into an avenue for expressing ideas that were connected with more than just oneself. The Cowardly Leon is the next step in the process of placing fears aside and braving the world that comes as it is, instead of how it is told to be.
