To put it simply, this band makes incredibly beautiful music… there’s a rich, deeply complex texture of traditional and modern arrangements, striking the most delicate and wistful tones in the most intense ways.”

some say Leland is the collective musical wanderings of a group of artists living in Austin, Texas. Led by songwriter Dan Grissom, some say Leland is a band full of composers from many different musical backgrounds. Their music is a unique blend of all of their influences. Elements of old time music intertwine with experimental flourishes and dense arrangements, creating a fitting environment for Grissom’s evocative lyrics.
