Leo Sayer - Leo's Room The Official Site

Welcome to LeoSayer.com

(Sydney –  March 4th 2014 )

Hello everybody,



I hope you are all well and happy wherever you may be.



After a slow start to the year it’s all systems go now, with lots of activity for the coming year being planned. We kicked off this years live performances with a very special open air concert at Mission Estate in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. This was great fun as I shared the bill with Billy Ocean, Sharon Corr, Melanie C and Ronan Keating. We had a full symphony orchestra to sing in front of too, The Auckland Philharmonic with Mark Taddei conducting. The band was led by Melbourne’s Chong Lim, who also scored all the arrangements. It was a great night, as the 11,000 people who attended will all attest to. I then spent a couple of extra days in the region and must say how amazingly beautiful and truly relaxing it was there.



Back home afterwards and I’ve been straight into the promotion for a tour I’m doing throughout Australia in May. It’s titled The APIA Good Times 2014 tour, and features me along with Australian legends, Russell Morris, Joe Camilleri, and Richard Clapton. We have a great band backing us up too, and have already been appearing live on TV here. We are all getting along famously – so I can’t wait for the tour to start! Ticket details are over on the ‘Live News’ page, and also on the tour website, where you can also see clips and interviews regarding the tour. See: “apiagoodtimes.com.au“.



I’m still writing and recording my new album, and it’s coming on great. It takes a bit of time, ‘cos I’m doing it myself, but I hope when you hear the results, you’ll agree it’s all worth it.



I must say I’m also delighted at how a recent project regarding objections to Coal Seam Gas mining here in Australia has been received. I’m quite fiercely opposed to what the Gas and Mining companies are collectively doing to this beautiful country of ours, and after hearing so many dreadful stories – many first hand – from people affected by this, I decided to put pen to paper, hands to keyboard, and compose a song. Then I met a terrific group of people here called Aussies Against Fracking, and they helped me make a great video featuring me and the song. You’ll see members of that group, and musicians and singers Doc Neeson, Jade Hurley, Deni Hines, Jeff Duff, Kevin Borich, Mitch Anderson, Mark Gable, Alex Gibson, Steve Balbi, Casey Burgess. Connor Cleary and Jarmb – Ji Githabul, all singing with me on ‘No Fracking Way’ – see it here: “www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xfo0hpVrtrs



I’m proud of the fact that it cost nothing to make, meaning that everyone donated their services and their time, and made their own travel arrangements to get down to Pow Wow Studios, where we filmed the performance. This is simply because they all agreed with me on the importance of the project, which is to spread awareness of the dangers to our health, threat to our precious water supply and the ecological devastation that Fracking brings to Australia. Craig “Chappo” Chapman (with the assistance of his Daily Planet team) filmed, directed and edited the whole thing beautifully, Pow Wow gave us the studio and their services for free, with Des O’Neill recording the extra voices on the spot. John Hudson applied his genius to the sound mix, and David Lowe provided all the terrific footage we used in the background. Special credit goes to Annie Wright and Nick Hanlon for getting us all together for the video shoot, and thanks in fact to all concerned, especially the folks from Lock The Gate (“www.lockthegate.org.au“), who efforts to ban Fracking we totally support. Via You Tube and Vimeo, this little clip has gone all over across the globe and as I write this, on You Tube has almost reached 20,000 views. Job well done!



I’m going to be adding some more live dates soon, hopefully in England Europe, China and Asia in the coming months, so stay tuned, keep sharing the love and the music, and I’ll talk to you all again soon…




——————————————————————



This is the new look ‘leo sayer.com’ – the official website and home of all things “leo”, so if it’s your first visit, here’s a few guidelines.


I think a website is like a virtual “world”, an entirely new home, an exhibition in the ether, and a different (and maybe fresh) way of looking at a life or career – well anyway, that’s the theory behind ‘leo’s room”.


Run your mouse or curser across the home page and you’ll see you can instantly locate various categories of the site by clicking and selecting highlighted images or icons.


These categories are also listed on top of the room, and here’s more on them:


News. You’ll find up to the moment news of my activities and my latest message to you on the news page.


Messages. The message page works much like before – here I invite you to send me a message, ask me questions, or create a forum or topic for discussion. Please keep your posts limited to one person per posting name. It’s not intended as a conversation page between friends – it’s a discussion group, so please when replying to a post, stick to the discussion topics. The site is monitored by the website facilitators (not only me) and we will remove multi posters who use more than one log in name, and all those who profess or pretend, incorrectly, to be the site moderators. Furthermore, we will not tolerate rudeness, offensive language, insults or bad manners, so if you want your message to be shown, you must adhere to these rules.

I will endeavour to reply to as many of your questions as frequently as I can.


Live news. This now has it’s own section too – with details of upcoming concerts and appearances.


Audio player. Here you can listen to tracks on the media player. This features a personal selection various tracks from the archives or recent live material, which will be updated from time to time.


Biography (The Story So Far). This has been carried over from the last edition of the site, and has the entire story of my life and career, with accompanying pictures.


Discography. It’s all new and details the hits and chart positions of my albums and singles in the U.K., the U.S.A., and Australia, also the territories they were released in.


Lyrics. Some of you may remember these pages from before, so I’ve brought ‘em back and brought them up to date – all the lyrics of every album and single track released are shown here.


Photographs. Here’s a new style gallery in an easily navigable format. It’s split into two categories: My career, and Recent Activities. I’ll be up dating these with new pics galleries from time to time.


Press Articles. I’ve been collecting these for some time, so I thought it’d be cool to share some of these with you. They run all the way from 1972 to the present day, telling my story from various other perspectives.


Store. Coming soon… Here there’ll be a chance to purchase merchandise like T-shirts, caps and other ‘leo’ branded items, and buy CD’s and DVD’s. We’ll supply and ship internationally from this site, so look out for this to be up and running soon.


Links. Here you can find other points of contact, for professional enquiries, bookings and such like. Also here are some of my favourite sites to visit, and the home sites of many of my favourite musicians and work colleagues.


I do hope you all enjoy the new pages and generally have fun with the material here.


“leosayer.com” has a truly international fan base, so I hope that the content here applies to all of you.


I can only apologise that if some of my releases are unknown to you, this is because they have not been made available worldwide. It’s just the way this business is, I’m afraid. Some territories don’t agree in taste with the other ones, but thanks to the web, the world is getting smaller and most of my releases can be found on the internet or by downloading, which I think is great.


Okay, that’s about it for now.  Keep watching this page for further developments ‘cos the ‘Show” is definitely still going on.


All the best….

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
