Hailing from the south of France, Nelson Leeroy has an impressive vocal range. With his smooth, warm intonations and subtly nuanced vocal stylings, he brings to mind some of the late great romantic crooners. At the same time, although his voice is a deep bass, he is also able to reach higher pitches (head voice) reminiscent of Marvin Gaye. Touching on themes such as spirituality, love and sexuality, Nelson is in his element on stage while singing, playing piano or DJing.
His passion for music and dance gave rise early on to a need for expression. At the age of 14, Nelson started teaching himself piano, and at 16 he enrolled at the Marseille Conservatory of Music, where he studied opera, music notation, harmony, counterpoint and music history. At 18 he began performing on stage as a vocalist, pianist and DJ, entertaining crowds with the classics of soul, funk and R&B that had marked his childhood. In a continuing quest for knowledge, he frequented recording studios, learning the trade of sound engineer/producer and developing his skills as a songwriter and performer.
Nelson then founded Soul Spirit, a recording studio and school of sound that quickly became a standard-setter in Marseille, the city of his birth. This allowed him to reach a new level of industry recognition and obtain gold, platinum and diamond records by working with high-profile individuals and artists such as Wes Anderson, Stephen Fry, Leee John (Imagination), Soprano, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Henri Quinson, Les Prêtres, Jeff Lindsay (Dexter), Jean-Michel Bernard (Ray Charles), Barbara Hendricks, Love Derwinger and many others.
In 2013 Nelson decided to stop providing commercial recording services and to focus instead on his own music, although he still collaborates with other artists on featurings and remixes. He is currently releasing his nu-disco, deep house and soulful productions on Soul Spirit Music, his own label, while remaining open to recording deals with other labels.
