Birds and Beasts is the musical alias of songwriter Leo Brazil. Drawing inspiration from the natural world to create a colourful evolution of sound that mixes pop, psychedelia and electronica. They have self-released two well received albums and supported Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, Chris Helme, Space, Miles Hunt, Seamus Fogerty, Liela Moss, The Rails and many more...

The lyrics stand alone as relatable songs of love, loss, friendship and family; but dwelling beneath the surface are well researched stories inspired by the fascinating lives of animals. A scorpions’ determined search for a partner, a family of crows mourning the passing of an elder, a young wolf leaving her family to start a new life, an ants self-sacrifice to protect the community and a hedgehog disturbed from hibernation by building works. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad but always engaging and thought provoking.

After several proto full band line-ups the project spent several years as a duo with partner Anna Rogge before an amicable separation in 2021 and a farewell show and hiatus starting in December 2022. The duo lineup reunited one final time to record a pair of emotional songs as a bookend on their time together which are set for release in December 2023. The future is now unwritten for Birds and Beasts but there are several exciting projects in the pipeline so please join us for the next stage of our evolution.
