Leonard Patton - Artist

Some people are born to sing. Leonard Patton was just born singing. From his elementary school days when he requested hall passes in order to test the acoustics of the schools hallways, to his college days of choir and ensembles, Patton has yet to stop singing.

While attending Mesa Community College, Patton discovered his musical niche for jazz. He also studied at the prestigious Berklee School of Music in Boston, where he further developed his musical abilities and fed his passion for jazz.

 

His rich, smoky voice, unique style, and sensational scat soon gained him entrance into San Diego's jazz scene. Patton's been performing and recording with such notable artists as Bill Cunliffe, Derek Nievergelt, Duncan Moore, Mitch Manker, Mike Bedard, Ken Dow, Jetro Da Silva, and countless others.
