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.
In 2016 he 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 is also involved in the constant development of their multimedia project THE 2ND EXCESSIVE RUDENESS.
Awir Leon’s 10-track debut GIANTS was released in October 2016. He is currently touring his sophomore album MAN ZOO, which was released in September 2019.
