Leron Thomas' musical journey began in his hometown of Houston, Texas. After graduating from the distinguished High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, he ventured to New York to develop as a trumpet player and composer, enrolling in Manhattan's The New School. Thomas graduated from The New School in 2003 and he began performing professionally with various artists including Bilal, Billy Harper, Charles Tolliver, and Roy Hargrove. The quality of his compositions was enhanced when playing live alongside peers such as Robert Glasper, Damion Reid, Vicente Archer, and Marcus Strickland. Thomas stayed in Manhattan to pursue his professional career, and worked with many more artists including Lauryn Hill, Bobby Watson, and Mos Def. He subsequently found ways to liberate himself through a natural progression into writing and performing "other music," a genre-crossing music incorporating jazz, blues, pop, country, electro-pop, and rock. With nine independently released projects and critical acclaim, Leron explores a range of artistic media.
