Amy Leon is a musician, poet, activist and educator. She performs frequently all over New York and has toured numerous times throughout Europe performing in collaboration with the BBC, Roundhouse, The Battersea Arts Center, Amnesty International and more. An alumna of the Nuyorican Slam Team, she fuses music and poetry through powerfully transparent performances focusing on social inequalities while celebrating love, blackness, and what it means to be woman. She is the author of two collections of poetry: the water under the bridge and Mouth Full of Concrete and just released her debut album, Something Melancholy. She is currently working on a new play and her next EP, while anxiously awaiting the release of her first childrens book via Walker Books in 2019.
