A Deli Premiere: Leon Rosen’s “Summer’s Edge”

As we reach the end of summer, we are proud to premiere the fittingly titled “Summer’s Edge,” by San Francisco-based Leon Rosen. Rosen feels like a Rufus Wainwright and a Jeff Buckley with the smallest touch of twang and the piano work to match. Rosen’s intimate piano pop is stunning and soothing. “Summer’s Edge” is a beautifully mixed and mastered tune with the right kind of warmth to make us feel like we’re in the room with him. And we’re pleased to know that we can be, soon. He’s playing this Friday, August 30 at Neck of the Woods to debut this and other tracks off his forthcoming album (on F Pop Records). Of “Summer’s Edge,” Rosen says it is “...a gentle sendoff of sorts, saying goodby to summer camp, summer romance, summer nostalgia or perhaps returning to a summer lost--a place where an era ended, at a new time of change.” What a refreshing find. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
