Leland Thomas Faegre

Home: Nevada US

Based in Nevada, musician and songwriter Leland Thomas Faegre was mostly a bookworm prior to the British Invasion of 1964. By the end of that year, he was so smitten by the Beatles that he assembled his first band after acquiring a drum set from his mother, Dorothy. Leland went on to learn piano and guitar, and he developed his skills by emulating the best of that era, such as CSNY, Byrds, and Buffalo Springfield. Today, he writes original material in a wide range of genres, including New Age, Classical, Dramatic, Celtic, African, and more.
