Leo Aram-Downs is an alternative progressive jazz-rock artist from Brighton, England, who caught my attention with his latest single, “Like A Lantern, She Awakens.” The song seamlessly blends alternative, prog, and jazz-rock influences, creating a dynamic journey that is easy to listen to. One of the highlights of this song is Leo’s impressive musicianship, which showcases his skills as a multi-instrumentalist with advanced musical knowledge. His great lead guitars draw inspiration from Pink Floyd‘s sound, which, as a huge admirer of the band, I found to be a delightful addition to the song. The sound production also stands out, as it creates a safe and secure zone for listeners to enjoy the song’s respectable amounts of jazz and progressive rock. Although it has a progressive edge, in the end, the song’s energy is similar to radio-friendly, alternative, and singer-songwriter music.
