US rock band Leeland gain chart success in Japan

AMERICAN progressive rock band Leeland continue to make inroads into the Japanese market. Their single "Sound of Melodies" jumped from number 17 to number 6 on the Japan radio/International charts. Said the band's frontman Leeland Mooring, "We are very excited about what is happening with our music in Japan, and can't wait to get back over there. During our live performance, we were touched by seeing the reaction of the crowd and how moved they were. People told us after the concert how they loved our 'melodies' and that there was a sort of 'healing' in the music. The experience of having to communicate with our new friends via translators was a special thing. It's an awesome reminder of how big this world truly is; that there's more to it than the street we live on, and the circle of people that we interact with everyday. After our experience in Japan, the heart we as a band have for our generation is only bigger." CR
