Creative Scotland are supporting Edinburgh based twenty four year old producer Leon T Pearl so that he can join five other Scottish bands appearing at The Great Escape 2014 in May.

He will join Prides, Honeyblood, Baby Strange, Neon Waltz and RM Hubbert at two Showcasing Scotland Concerts being presented on 8 and 9 May at the Dome Studio Bar in Brighton.

Pearl released his debut single Take You To Market on Method Records.  His early musical adventures brought together a love of electronic music, club culture and classical piano.  Time well spent travelling brought more inspiration: a mutual friend led to studio sessions with Nicolas Jaar in New York and a rudimental grasp of Japanese resulted in a young Leon residing in Tokyo for a short while.

Alongside live music The Great Escape is also a leading music business convention and this year is set to attract 3000 music industry delegates.

Creative Scotland is also hosting a networking event on 9 May to help promote the profile of Scottish music with those people attending the convention.
