Mattie Leon

Mattie Leon is a singer/songwriter hailing from Hamilton. A craftsman on guitar and piano, Mattie refuses to leave the past behind. His sensibilities are informed by the songwriting of the sixties and seventies. His voice, whether soaring or soulful, is his own. The result is a fresh take on a classic form; familiar but unmistakably new.

Mattie is no stranger to the road. He’s brought his music to stages across Canada, from the Atlantic to Pacific coasts. At his side is Mike Leon, Mattie’s drummer and longtime collaborator. Together, they’ve become a captivating example of the unique thing that happens when siblings perform on the same stage.

For his latest album, Mattie enlisted the help of acclaimed Canadian producer, Mark Howard (Bob Dylan, Neil Young, U2, Tragically Hip). Recorded during the last gasps of winter in March 2022, Mattie, Mike, and longtime bassist, Nelson Sobral did things the old fashioned way; recording everything together in the same room. The result is “Backroad Medicine,” released March 2023 on Castlemore Records.


Self-described as a hanger of hammocks and maker of music, Todd has slowly began the transition from cover songs to putting pen to paper himself. Drawing inspiration from artists like CAAMP, The Lumineers and Noah Kahan, the 2023 Huntsville’s Got Talent winner continues to grow within the Muskoka music scene.
