Adryon de Leon

"Adryon de León’s voice sizzles with soul, and a fair amount of attitude, yet still clings to a sweeter timbre beneath all that vocal bravado. When she bares her soul for a song, you can be sure that the world of funk music is very much alive — and maybe even itching for a fight." - Carl Pettit, Ozy

Adryon de León, born and raised Ojai, CA cut her teeth in a Baptist congregation. Over her formative years, musical theater infused de León’s life with the end result a unique theatrical, gritty, and soulful sound. Currently, she is a featured principal vocalist/performer for the Disneyland Resort, has performed background vocals for Macy Gray, Patti Austin, The Growlers, and George Clinton, and lends her voice to commercial studio sessions. In 2013, she joined the acclaimed Los Angeles-based soul & funk group Orgone. Orgone’s recent release, Beyond the Sun, is the group’s first featuring de León in a lead vocal and collaborative writing role.
