In this year’s Live Exchange at CTM, Resident Advisor’s Will Lynch meets with Craig Leon, a composer, A&R manager and music producer. With a keen ear for anticipating advancements in sound and style, Leon is credited with the discovery and development of groups such as The Ramones, Blondie, The Talking Heads, and Suicide.
Craig Leon is notorious for launching the careers of now-iconic '70s and '80s rock and pop musicians, but a series of solo synth experiments recorded decades ago and recently reissued by RVNG has made him a notable artist in his own right
Will Lynch is the associate editor of Resident Advisor, where he has been a staff writer since 2010. He lives in Berlin.
