Leo Aether

The Andes, the backbone of the Americas, is the source of life and light for an entire continent – and it is precisely this energy which flows through Leo Aether’s music. This band’s fusion of South American folk and rock n’ roll has been praised in both Colombia and Puerto Rico, as well as the USA. Some have called their fusion one of the most successful Rock Raíz attempts.

The band members of Leo Aether are from Puerto Rico and Colombia and they bring a big range of sounds powered by the songs of lead singer and former Urbe Prima leader, Leonardo Linares, who has traveled and played through Central and South America as a solo artist and writer for several years before the band’s creation in late 2016. Bass player Juan has been a gig musician all of his life in Puerto Rico, and joined the band as soon as he moved to the US in 2016. Pablo, the percussionist, comes from a family involved with the music and show production industries in Puerto Rico, and is a professional musician in Orlando. Together, the members of the band have over 30+ years of cumulative experience in stages all over the Americas. They toured together at the end of 2016 to promote their most recent album “Vuelo al Sur” through Colombia, Puerto Rico and USA.

Please also bring food or wine to share. A native of West Virginia’s Wood County region, Burge spent the ’80s and ’90s earning his place as one of the most important and enduring figures in the state’s music scene, fronting everything from the alt-rock band 63 Eyes to the outlaw-country cover project Triple Shot. Since the early 2000s, Burge has concentrated on his singular brand of folk-pop storytelling. His latest album, Imitation Life, was produced by longtime collaborator and Grammy winner Tim O’Brien.
