About Us

Color-63.jpg

LeAnder is an American alternative rock band from Nashville, Tennessee with a similar style to NeedToBreathe and Foo Fighters. Their live performance and energetic stage presence are truly inspiring and contagious. Always welcoming crowd participation, LeAnder is very tight rhythmically and delivers a Switchfoot and 30 Seconds To Mars influenced sound behind driving anthems and tasteful pop melodies. They met at MTSU, but didn’t establish the band until 2015. While navigating through difficult relationship and job circumstances, frontman Scott Anderle launched a successful kickstarter and brought on drummer Andrew Hall and bassist Logan Rhea to create LeAnder.

In 2016, they released their debut EP Invictus and toured across the Southeast playing several colleges and house shows. To keep their momentum running, LeAnder quickly dropped their sophomore EP, The Tension, and toured over 25 cities promoting the record. Most notably, LeAnder has collectively played with and opened for Framing Hanley, NeedToBreathe, Colton Dixon, We Are Messengers and Sent By Ravens. Several music industry blogs such as Alternative Press, MoviePilot, Neat Nashville, and I Am The Industry are talking about LeAnder’s recent success with The Tension and their music video Feel It In My Bones.

Currently, LeAnder is booking shows for their fall tour and songwriting with multiple artists for their 3rd project. Their music is available on Spotify and all other digital platforms.

 

MISSION:

The heart behind LeAnder is an open invitation to answer the question, what does it mean to be fully alive? With that in mind, LeAnder aims to use their influential music and authentic lyrics as a platform of hope and encouragement to the next generation on and off stage. As We Are Messengers lead singer Darren Mulligan says, “these are fine men, with true hearts and a passion for music that is infectious”. There's freedom in surrender and beauty in the chaos.

The Team

Scott Lamons Vox, guitar LeAnder front man Scott Lamons, 23, is no stranger to the music industry. This 2014 Match Records Songwriting Competition winner has been featured on albums such as Not Be Moved: Live From Southeast Vineyard Churches by Vineyard Music and Dreamcatcher by Mogli The Iceburg. Lately, the Chattanooga, Tennessee local has been focusing on LeAnder’s upcoming debut EP release featuring popular songs “Feel It In My Bones” and “Steakhouse.”             “As a songwriter, I write songs that make me feel exposed after playing them. It can be exhausting and leave my head ringing with emotions. I hope these songs not only tell my story, but the story of the listener.”             The Middle Tennessee State University alum has opened for Framing Hanley, Seryn, Sent By Ravens and stand-up comedian Sinbad.  Although Lamons has had an exciting career so far, the path was not always so bright. After some trying times he almost turned his back on the music industry.             “I decided to give up on music thinking that my desire for music was a negative trait and a hindrance on my advancement towards God. Now I know that it is a God-Given desire that I need to live out.”

Morgan Hall Manager      Some of us are not born with a musical ability, but there are those of us who are born with a passion for music. There are those of us who believe in how music can move people and wish to help those who create it.       Morgan Hall, 20, is the band manager for the new band LeAnder, and she believes in the power of what this band can do. Even though she is never on stage, Hall plays a vital role in the band.       "I help keep them organized, build websites and social media, help with marketing, budgeting, selling merchandise. Just any odd tasks they need help with."       Hall started networking in Murfreesboro, Tennessee while attending Middle Tennessee State University to study music business. She established herself with Bonhoeffer's, a popular music venue for local bands, and put her booking skills to work. Hall decided to leave MTSU to consider the best path for her future. She started working for Current Booking Agency in Nashville, Tennessee weeks later and currently resides there today.       Ever since she was a child, Hall knew she wanted to work in the music industry. At age 13 she attended Camp Electric, a worship and rock and roll music camp, to explore her interests. Hall decided that she did not want to be a performer, but she still had a burning passion for music. There she met Andrew Hall, the future drummer for LeAnder.
