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.
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.
