Billboard.com's Top 10 Artists to Watch...
GB Leighton, a band named after one of the regions’ most incendiary live performers and consistently solid songwriters, Brian Leighton. Through more than two decades, Leighton and his five piece band have been tearing up rock clubs, festivals and even a few fan’s living rooms with a slew of songs that connect with the heart and couples singing along out on the dance floor. “A man of the people” is a phrase usually reserved for statesmen and politicians, but for Leighton, it’s a fitting description when you see him in action working a crowd.
GB Leighton has 10 studio releases, 4 live albums and has sold over 70,000 albums. The band is currently recording a new studio album.
Named one of Billboards ten artists to watch, Minnesota native GB Leighton has quite a fan following, his fans have en very much behind him, and very loyal, though some go to extreme lengths to prove it. -Chuck Dauphin, Billboard
