Last year was a good one for this leftie singer-songwriter.
His debut single Jerusalem was used in the Ridley Scott-produced documentary Life In A Day and last summer he found himself supporting Bob Dylan alongside a host of other acts at Finsbury Park's Feis festival.
His songwriting is pleasingly off the wall and Leonard seems to like his reading.
On Harold Pinter Is Dead, he laments the death of the playwright he comes across in a newspaper and on Air Raid he's "reading books about cars driving off bridges" and "Vladimir Nabokov - he seems to know a lot of stuff."
Elsewhere, album closer Lost Weekend is a comic ode to bohemian lifestyles - with lyrics about going on shotgun city breaks at the weekend before flying back home to listen to Nirvana's Nevermind and having arguments with your girlfriend over whether there's enough room in the flat for a Jackson Pollock.
