Though he got an early start, Leon Bryant enjoyed more success early on than later in his career. He started classical training at five and was a choral musical director at 12. His composition "You Are My Latin Lover" was a hit for Joe Bataan in 1980. Bryant's 1981 self-titled debut blended gospel and soul, as did the second Finders Keepers in 1984. Both were for De-Lite, the label that was the first home for Kool And The Gang. Bryant also wrote the material and produced The Intruders' LP Who Do You Love in 1984. A talented vocalist and keyboardist, Bryant has never been able to break through commercially, despite his gifts.
