about

It's been two fertile years for Yhan Leal since he released his last recording. Quietly determined, Leal has come from busking nightly outside Bellingen's local supermarket, to developing a career as a bona fide touring and recording artist.

Leal’s new album, the eponymous Yhan Leal, was recorded between Leal’s home in Bellingen and in various Sydney studios with Producer Ryan Miller. The new full length album contains all the ethereal dreaminess, melodic guitars and haunting harmonies that are the halmark of Yhan's hypnotic style, but also takes a new direction with the augmentation of a full band and production on several tracks. Themes of love, loss and grief, travel, peace and freedom, are explored with a maturity and honesty, that has developed with Leal's own journey of genuine musical evolution.

Biography
“Born the son of Colombian poverty, reprised a migrant under Australia’s burnt sun. Raised by an angelic mother in wilderness scrub. The youngest of four brothers, I didn’t walk the path of a modern nuclear family. Seeking freedom from hardship my eyes and heart opened to a new way of living. Young and hungry I found my path in music.”

This is the story of Yhan Leal, a truly gifted musician with a powerful personal story. As a boy growing up in Cali Colombia life wasn’t easy. Classical guitar came naturally, working his magic on Lennon, Elvis and Richie Valens. Writing his first compositions to suit his older brother’s poetry he nurtured a pure talent for songwriting. Music marched through his teens and to the stage. The turmoil came too, and his path took route through buddhism and bouts of meditation. Having ridden the undulatory throws of life, a man emerges wise and courageous with music that moves those inescapably drawn into his circle.

There is no pigeon hole for Leal’s music, but if one was to categorise the genre it might well be Post Folk. Drawing similarities to luminaries Patrick Watson, Devendra Banhart, M.Ward, Angelo De Augustine, Sufjan Stevens, Milk Carton Kids, and James Vincent Mcmorrow

Track Name: By the Wayside
Lived by the words of my brothers
Fell by the wayside of the street
Lived our lives rough and tumble
When we played
We played for keeps
One dizzy night in the autumn
She said hold out your palm
Let it speak

Though your stars are aligned
The way is not defined
Come with me and I'l show you
A little more in time
Don't let yourself fall
By the wayside

Walked by the sea for a long time
I let all my troubles sleep
I look for a sign and a vision
Maybe something I could keep
But the night slowly drew it's Black Curtains
And the mist couldn't hide my fear

Though your stars are aligned
The way is not defined
Come with me and I'l show you
A little more in time
Don't let yourself fall
By the wayside

Ooh ooh

The rolling storms of the winter
Shifted the landscape of my soul
In a flash in the eye of the beholder
Witnessed the birth of a girl
Laughter she got from her mother
But not her golden skin
Watch her play and I wonder
Who's magic is this?

Though your stars are aligned
The way is not defined
Come with me and I'l show you
A little more in time
Don't let yourself fall
By the wayside

Though your stars are aligned
The way is not defined
Come with me and I'l show you
A little more in time
Don't let yourself fall
By the wayside
Track Name: Long Lost Poems
Long lost Poems
Stories, paper trails
Pictures that I can hold
Dulcet Tears falling
On your piano
Three keys are gone

Stay right where you are
know where you've been
All your tears are gone
Stay right where you are
Know where you've been
All your fear is gone

Love, Love she's gone
wrapped in the night
reckless love
Love
Track Name: Venice
This night lacks no beauty
Like fireworks
Like water

No-one knows
That our love like Venice is real
Oh you just wanna feel
Solo queremos sentir
We were living in a bad dream
Wishing all the dark clouds
All would float away

And time won't tell
Only wonder
This night is young
And so easy

No-one knows
That our love like Venice is real
Oh you just wanna feel
Solo queremos sentir
We were living in a bad dream
Wishing all the dark clouds
All would float away

Doo doo doo doo
ooh ooh ooh

No-one knows
That our love like Venice is real
Oh you just wanna feel
Solo queremos sentir
We were living in a bad dream
Wishing all the dark clouds
All would float away
Track Name: Twilight
Dim twilight
Furs evergreens
Huddle for a warm goodbye
A taste
Then they leave

The things I said
Avenues and streets
The beating in my chest
The shuffle of your feet

All we had
Now is gone
All we ever had
Now is gone

ooh

Keep this light
Breed violet mist
Walk into the sacred light
No haste, no need

The dreams I had
Towering scapes and beams
Fleeting endlessly
Showers of reprieve

All we had
Now is gone
All we ever had
Now is gone

Ooh ooh
Track Name: Up on the Mountain
up on the mountain
where time is slow
up on the mountain
where silence grows
up on the mountain
where something knows

I dreamed a dream
that you caught my eye
I rode a train
through fields and lies

mmmmmm

Up on the mountain
where life is bare
up on the mountain
where silence scares
up on the mountain
where fires flare

I dreamed a dream
that you caught my eye
I rode a train
through fields and lies

mmmmm

Ooh oooh

up on the mountain
where seeds hide
up on the mountain
where treasure lies
up on the mountain
where peace resides

mmmmmm
Track Name: Lucia
Lucia was a common girl
a waitress by day
one night under silent stars
she was washed away
her lover drank the sea
found her where she lay
only bones and polished stones
and a letter that read

Hear the sound
Full of life
Hear it like a child
Fooling around

He fell under her spell
walked a thousand leagues
finally he stopped and found
a few words to speak
there’s no need for reasons
or even for the truth
I only want one more chance
I’ve been a fool

Hear the sound
Full of life
Hear it like a child
Fooling around

Lover under the sea
all your colour
so deep

Time was a cruel host
who knows where to begins
from the turning of the wheel
to the scenes of great burning
Lucia you’re a mountain
a flowers scent on the wind
and your note in my pocket
I’ll keep till my end..

Hear the sound
Full of life
Hear it like a child
Fooling around
Track Name: Ships
life was surreal
timbre sweet
the whole world shook
and left me here

n love was a god
nowhere to be seen
I heard a voice
from lost ships

I wish on a star
we could all be together
make a brand new start
and I wish on a star
we could all flow together
as one in your precious heart

oooh

Time was a friend
as the wild wind breathed
the bow it rests
all rusty and free

we bathed in the sun
spoke for a while
and I longed to know
if you’d feed me once more

I wish on a star
we could all be together
make a brand new start
and I wish on a star
we could all flow together
as one in your precious heart

and I wish on a star
we could all flow together
as one in your precious...
Track Name: Grace
You've not lived
Till you know sorrow
You've not lived
Till you know grace

You've not lived
Till you know sorrow
You've not lived
Till you know grace

Cause love is a weeping
Beautiful face
So let me down slowly
So i'll feel no shame
Life is for giving
So give me today

You've not lived
Till you know sorrow
You've not lived
Till you know grace
Track Name: Wildfire
Driving south, Way State Forest
Grassy is a place, so good to take rest
see this land spread wide,
far to the cliffs
the ocean meets the sun
travelling on the wind

and the hills they wonder, when you’re coming home
and the hills they wonder, when you’re coming home

Your love is like a wildfire, burning fast
I’ve got some troubles
but they won’t last

Oh your love is like the open sea
born of solace, born free
oh you and I know, we’ll always be
yeah you and I, I know, we’ll always be

lost in a clouds, way yonder
heard her cry, felt strange,I was there
then tiny sparks, stole the dark
earth and heaven healed your wounds
at days end

and the mountain wonders when you’re coming home

Your love is like a wildfire, burning fast,I got some troubles
but they won’t last
Oh your love is like the open sea
born of solace, born free
you and I know, we’ll always be
yeah you and I, I know we’ll always be

oooh, oooh

Oh your love is like a wildfire, burning fast,I got some troubles
but they won’t last
Oh your love is like the open sea
born of solace, born free

you and I know, we’ll always be
oh you and I, I know we’ll always be

Oooh ooh
