Leonard Friend / Bio

In the winter of 2010, frustrated songwriter and multi instrumentalist Alex Feder -- previously known as the frontman of Brooklyn band The XYZ Affair -- nearly gave up on his childhood ambitions and quit music. Instead, he chose to move across the country to Los Angeles and create R&B singer Leonard Friend, a musical altar ego named after his grandfather, who abandoned a promising career as a big band saxophonist when he entered the family's traveling salesman business. The soundtrack for Feder's cross country journey -- Michael Jackson's Dangerous, The Dismemberment Plan's Emergency and I, Usher's Confessions, Phil Collins' Face Value, the Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell duets, and the first three records by The Time -- became the roots for his new project, which Feder would officially unveil with the debut EP Lynyrd Frynd.
