Disc one has spoken word poems written and performed by Léonie Scott-Matthews. Disc two has the poems set to music performed by various musicians including David.
Poetry has always been Léonie’s first love. Her poet and musician father encouraged her to write and compose, while her actress and drama teacher mother taught her to recite and perform. After training at the Royal Academy of Music and Drama and then winning the Poetry Society’s Gold Medal for Verse Speaking, in 1968 Léonie founded Pentameter’s, a poetry based theatre in Hampstead. Now in 2021 she is presenting her own poetry, music, stories and plays.
