Leigh Samuel Taylor is the fresh talent emerging from the heart of Southampton, known widely as LST. Through starting his career in music, LST worked the graft of the club circuit throughout the UK. Incorporating the well-honed talents of a skilled poet and vocalist, LST strived to take a different route. Through utilising slick urban story telling personas and taking on a collective of a full band, LST created a fresh sound that inspires his personal neo-futuristic take on street music.
After forming the band in April 2011, LST took a chance and entered 'Road To Blissfields' the competition for a slot at the biggest independent festival on the south coast, Blissfields. Championing over 100 competing bands LST amazingly won the first prize and performed on the main stage of the festival.
With such exposure it has led to radio airplay including being featured on BBC Introducing: The South, BBC Radio 6 Music with Tom Robinson and his track 'Let Go' was named as BBC Radio 1Xtra's track of the week. Inspired by the positive feedback from the media, LST actively gigged which led to supporting slots for the likes of Ndubz, Chipmunk, Kosheen and Clemant Marfo and The Frontline.
Being under the radar LST was also swooped up to rub shoulders with the likes of Zane Lowe, Mista Jam, Labrinth and Calvin Harris. After being chosen to take part in the first ever BBC Introducing musician's master class at legendary Abbey Road and Maida Vale Studios.
LST is currently in the process of finishing his full length, debut album titled, Working Hard But Hardly Working, collaborating with the legendary Billy Bragg (Levi Stubbs' Tears / This Is England).
