Francois Przybylski aka Awir Leon is a french singer, songwriter, producer and dancer currently living in Amsterdam.
Native to Dunkerque (where he keeps working with the trio UNNO) it is between Amsterdam, Paris and wherever his dance career took him that he forged his path as a solo artist.
After releasing two instrumental EPs and creating several soundtracks for dance pieces by Pansun Kim, Roy Assaf, Amala Dianor and Compagnie Black Sheep he started to experiment with using his voice in the production of MMFT (Metal Monkey Fire Tiger), a 6-track release. Drawing from this first attempt, he comes closer to the paths of artists like James Blake or Thom Yorke, whilst building his own sound and identity.
He recently collaborated with choreographer Emanuel Gat on the piece SUNNY, in which he joins the dancers on stage to perform his music live. As a founding member of the artistic collective SOMETHING MACHINE he will soon dive again into the intersection of music and dance for the creation process of THE 2ND EXCESSIVE RUDENESS.
Awir Leon’s debut 10-track album GIANTS was released in October 2016. He is currently touring Europe with both SUNNY and GIANTS.
