Baby Asteroid offers listeners an escape, taking them on a celestial journey to a place far away from pain and solitude. It was conceived on the island of Corfu, on a starry summer night in a tiny village, untouched by the course of time. He was inspired by the idea of a weightless world, where harmony and serenity reign. a place where those who have passed away await those whom they have left behind. He sings “we were never alone, we were never alone.”
Greece has always been a great source of inspiration for Leon of Athens aka Timoleon Vermis. In the current climate where the young generation is facing great challenges, more and more artists are finding refuge in creativity. This has resulted in a blooming indie scene in Athens which Leon is proud to be part of. Although he is currently based in London, he often returns to Greece to perform, where he is widely known.
