Just like the 1986 movie in which Eddie Murphy searches far and wide for The Golden Child, recording artists will go out of their way to work with Leon "The Golden Child" Seenandan. The reason is simple. This music producer truly knows his craft.
The 22 year old prodigy has been producing music since he was 15 and polished his skills, working at The Sound Academy in Sydney for three years. His musical journey began at the age of six, when he learned how to play the piano and violin. He has since gone on to master the guitar, bass and drums.
Leon has worked with many established artists. He's produced tracks for Jessica Mauboy including her collaboration with Iyaz on her "Get 'Em Girls" album. He also produced the orchestral arrangement for Mauboy's live MTV performance of "Running Back" which won the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) award for the highest selling single of the year in 2009. Leon's production on Stan Walker's "From the Inside Out" album is illustrative of his talent. The album debuted at #2 on the ARIA charts and #1 in New Zealand and one of the tracks "Stand Up" was chosen for the movie "The Chronicles of Narnia - The Voyage of the Dawn Treader." Other artists Leon's worked with include Snob Scrilla, Wanya Morris from Boyz II Men and Chauncey Black from Blackstreet.
Leon finds it inspiring working with emerging artists. "I like being put in a position where I can help artists find their identity. We can work together to create sounds and push boundaries," Leon said.
At the end of the day he just wants to get the best out of an artist and that's exactly what he does.
"Every artist lives in a world governed by their influences, inspirations and aspirations. The perfect mix of these is what can creatively stimulate them more than anything else. If a producer can understand this headspace, bring it to life, uniquely and make it "commercially" relevant. For each artist.. They've done their job.
Well, that's what I do anyway."
