Leo Sayer almost needs no introduction. He is held in great esteem as a live performer and recording artist by all age groups - from 6 to 60. This is as much due to his appearing famously with the Muppets, the Wiggles and on the Charlie's Angels Soundtrack, as the countless hit songs he has written and recorded throughout his 40 plus years career. In the international music charts there have been more than twenty top ten singles and five top ten albums in his illustrious recording career. Add to this the hits written for Roger Daltrey, Cliff, Three Dog Night, Tina Turner, Gene Pitney, Jennifer Warnes, and both Stella and Dolly Parton. It proves his prowess as an internationally acclaimed and talented songwriter. Now Leo is based in Australia, where he is busier and in more demand than ever.
