“His music is STUNNING, TIMELESS, HEARTFELT. Most of all I was taken by his VOICE, HONEST and FULL of LIFE, with bits of reckless abandon, as if he’s singing/talking to a good friend.”

Bobby Vee – 38 Top 100 hits, 7 Gold Records

“Downey is a BRILLIANT guitarist, with a superb instrumental acoustic guitar album and an equally FASCINATING rock record. Downey is a MAJOR TALENT who bears repeated listening, no matter what, Downey is a MUST SEE!”

“Downey combines innocence with a startling awareness of the world around him, to invoke wondrous spiritual images…the melodies are tempered with a fury that can embroil us in a torrent, an emotional downpour!”

Eugene Pidgeon – KCQR Santa Barbara

“When I featured Downey’s Heaven and Hell as album of the week, I received more calls than any other album I’ve ever featured…People want to know “WHO IS THAT GUY?!”

“Downey has a brooder’s temperament, a good looking fellow with talent and a romantic streak a mile wide, his lone wolf voice bathes in deep pools of digital reverb.”

Josef Woodward – Santa Barbara Independent

“Headliner Leo Downey DID IT ALL! The audience was AWESTRUCK by his talents…his strong classical influences and a wide selection of self-written songs which brought the crowd to their feet in seconds!”
