Owls 'n' Bats - Festival 2022 - Impressions

pics by Petra Franke, Bettina Simon, Ian Leding and DJane Sally Shadowplay










It is with great pleasure to announce that we will play at tomorrow's Owls 'n' Bats Festival due to cancellation of Ropes of Night for health reasons.

This will be our first full band lineup gig in quite a long time...come and join us!

WGT *s p e c i a l*

After *Victorian Village* (and so our gig as well) has been cancelled, we decided to bring our music to WGT on our own way.


See us busking in the streets or in front of venues and also performing in a special way in parks...


Stay tuned!

Here comes 'Anachron', a song from the past in a new garment. And yet there´s more to come...

Recording has started!

When it's late at night and you can't stop listening. Must be something quite peculiar to hear. What it is...? Well, it's no secret anymore that I have started recording sessions for a new album. 🖤🦇

More details to be found on my patreon account.

2022 - first news and updates

You might have seen it in my story or on my Facebook that I've returned to #patreon.

As an artist I am sharing most of my art for free. You can listen to my music on several platforms without being charged. But this kind of "business model" doesn't fill my fridge or pay my bills, so I think it's absolutely fair for an artist to found a special club where you can become an exclusive member for a small fee.

Being a member of this "inner circle" means that you love the art I'm creating and are willing to support me on a regular basis. In reward you will have access to the process of creating my art, lots of very personal insights into my life as a musician and songwriter. This is in a way a triple A backstage pass, but with the difference that there's far more for you to explore than just crappy backstage rooms 😉

Will you join me on this trip? Let me know what you think (and don't worry, I will not shut down my usual social media networks).


Ian 🖤🦇




Autumn dates

Culture started again and so did Rock'n'Roll!

We proudly announced our first official indoor-gig since about 18 months: 08.10.2021 Hamburg - Fundbureau.

On 23.10. you could see us at mono-bar, Meschede.


We've also played a private gig in November, but we´ve been forced to cancel our private gig in December because of the actual pandemic situation.


Here some special Videos of the special event on 31.10.2021:

+++ late summer news +++

After months of social distancing, wearing masks and behave like hermits, life has now returned. We were already on the road for playing a special concert in a very wonderful setting, with unique hosts and guests. We do busking on the streets without wearing masks and now we're packing up our stuff again: This time we're heading eastwards. See you at "Schwarzes Lohm" in wonderful Brandenburg, Lohm castle and at the and  of August and we're finally back in our beloved Berlin.


If you also want a private concert with us: get in contact!

Dear friends and followers,
our first album 'Hidden Faces' (at that time still under a different name) is now finally running out. We still have exactly 18 CDs that can be ordered through our bandcamp. Once these 18 CDs are sold, the album will no longer be available.
This closes a chapter from the old days and to celebrate this farewell, there are three demos from the pre-production of the album available for download with every order.
There will be no reissues, remasters or anything like that. That finally concludes the chapter. As a reminder of this time, we have uploaded the tracks 'Hear me / Salvation' on our YouTube channel, which are highlighted with film sequences from a fan video originally created by Nomad.
salvation AMP: Hidden Faces
Recorded in 2011 at Sultan Studios Barntrup, released in 2012.
All songs written, arranged, recorded and produced by Ian Leding.
Ian Leding: guitars, bass guitar, vocals, backing vocals
Steve Leafs: drums, drum editing
Farewell 🦇🖤

What do you do when there's no club to play in? When it´s forbidden to meet some people in their living room and play a private gig? When there´s even no chance to hit an open air stage and many live streams have already been done?


***Go out and bring the music on the street!***


And if you like what we do and have forgotten your wallet at home...




During the time of lockdown, when it is no longer even possible to make music on the street, there´s still a place of refuge: The Studio. We played and recorded a number of songs for you live in the rehearsal room and we also started again to work on further streaming concerts. If you follow the LEDING-YouTube Channel you won´t miss any new Studio-Livevideo. Maybe you can also participate in new ideas and developments.


Livestreaming-concerts have been broadcasted via facebook or instagram, but we´re working tirelessly on further transmission options like e.g. twitch.







A lot of still unreleased and also numerous absolute new songs are waiting to be recorded.

New album release: homebound (live)

Homebound - a live stream concert.

Recorded live in my kitchen during lockdown 2020 on April 1st. The concert was broadcasted live via Facebook live stream due to restrictions during the corona virus pandemic.


There are some videos of this very special concert on YouTube.




You can watch the whole livestream on our facebook page.
