Naples born, but London based singer-songwriter Leo Pesci returns with a new EP, Community, blacked by London Jazz heavyweights Johnny Woodham (Alfa Mist) and Dani Diodato (Pyjæn, Arlo Parks). With echoes of the like of D’Angelo, Jordan Rakei and the RH Factor, we’re delighted to be able to premiere the EP right here on Backseat Mafia this morning. …

Backseat Mafia is excited to premiere the latest, dreamy drop from Brisbane’s Juniper Stone, who officially unveils newest single Moonchild this Friday 26 November.
