Leon Joseph Littlebird and Will Clipman fuse elements of guitar-driven folk-rock, troubadour balladry and contemplative Native American flute with the heartbeat of drums and world percussion to create a new genre of music they call Big Skillet: inclusive and effusive, traditional yet unconventional, with a boundary-crossing originality both timely and timeless. Woven throughout the duo's multi-instrumental sonic tapestry, Leon's rich baritone and poetic lyrics provide a thematic unity to the music.
A SunDog Twins concert encompasses songs of social conscience, romantic love and historical Americana, intermingled with intimate instrumental duets that feature seven-time Grammy nominee Will's pan-global palette of indigenous instruments and Leon's deft guitar and flute artistry. Both musicians are also gifted raconteurs, segueing from song to song with insightful and entertaining storytelling that humanizes and illuminates their music for all ages and tastes.
Their recently recorded music collaboration: “Shadow Chant” was released in the Fall of 2017.
