The great American soul singer Leon Ware visits Band on the Wall celebrating 50 years of producing hugely influential and beautiful music that’s been etched into the hearts of fans of superbly crafted, timeless love songs across the world.
His most famous album was I Want You, was written for friend and Motown icon Marvin Gaye in 1976.
He also wrote the Top 5 R&B single, “I Wanna Be Where You Are”, for a young Michael Jackson in 1972, and created the Body Heat album along with Quincy Jones.
He wrote “Inside my Love” for Minnie Ripperton, “If I ever love this heaven” for the Average White Band & “Sumthin’ Sumthin” for Maxwell.
During the 1970s and 1980s, Leon Ware released six albums on various different labels including “Musical Massage”, “Rockin’ you eternally”, “Inside is Love”.
1982’s “Why I came to California“, recorded with Janis Siegel, was a huge smash during the London Rare Groove years and is arguably his most loved song.
Leon Ware has worked with Smokey Robinson, Bobby Womack, Stevie Wonder, The Isley Brothers, Ike & Tina Turner, Isaac Hayes, The Miracles, Donny Hathaway & the Jackson 5.
