After 8 years touring in bands and releasing albums with independent labels, Leander started his music business career in journalism and publicity, before sidestepping into artist management in 2007.
Integral to the development of Architects and Lower Than Atlantis, Leander's career went up another level with the discovery of Neck Deep, who he signed at their first ever show in 2012. Since then, Leander has been at the core of the band's evolution into a global headliner, with top 5 albums in the US and UK. He has also continued to showcase a keen ear for A&R, developing Brighton band As It Is from club band to main stage artist in just 4 years, and playing a significant part in Creeper's debut album campaign.
In 2018, Leander's work with Neck Deep and As It Is caught the attention of ie:music, where he now works as part of the company's formidable global team, on his existing roster and more.
