When Stuart Leach was home alone one afternoon at the age of eleven, he sat down at the piano to write his first song and hasn't looked back.

In high school, Leach fronted a piano-driven rock band called Seastroke. They released an album, opened for nationally touring acts, such as Maps & Atlases, and received radio play in Dallas, LA, and Austin. When his mates went off to different colleges around the country, Leach started to work alone. Now you can find the 21-year-old college student hunkered down in his apartment in Austin, still writing songs.

In June, Leach released Kokedama, a seven song mini-album and a step in a new direction for the young artist. The songs are open and cheerful in spite of a sense of longing and nostalgia. As one reviewer put it, "The sound is casual but deep, invigorating in its emotional frankness yet not so serious that it can't get playful[...]" (Ovrld). Leach pushes the limits of the current synth-pop craze to the next level by a refusal to be anything but himself--his particular lyrical style and superb sense of pop melodies come through with an earnest honesty. “From the woozy, swerving electronics of ‘Tru Luv’, to the classic-rock vibes of ‘Blueberry Queen’, to the peppy, synth-laced ‘Tiptoes’, prepare to have Leach becoming a new artist that you hold in a higher regard than most.” (Hillydilly)

twig twig
darkworld gleaming, the third release by twig twig, is a search for perspective in a confusing time. looking for the wisdom that aging promises, finding ways to cope with flaws that don’t seem to change. it’s an introverted album, dense with muddy thoughts and thick textures, but glowing underneath is a strong desire to connect more honestly with the outside world.

while the last two releases were made nomadically on a laptop, this one was written and recorded in a new home. with a new space comes a new routine and sense of self, but also new sounds: piano and guitar join the already broad textural palette of twig twig’s music. as a dedicated home-recordist and multi-instrumentalist, twig twig attempts to use specific sounds not only to accompany the lyrics, but to support and challenge them, creating a fully expressive sonic statement.

twig twig is a home-recording project by Zubin Hensler. outside of twig life he is a restless collaborator, but for these albums he makes all the sounds and sings all the words. for shows he likes to invite friends to collaborate, which has made the live performances an evolving process of musical and social experimentation. sometimes he performs solo with an electronic array, sometimes it’s acoustic with piano, winds, and strings, sometimes it’s a bigger band with electric guitar and drums.

outside of this project, Zubin plays with The Westerlies, a new music brass quartet, and has performed or recorded with Half Waif, Hannah Epperson, Fleet Foxes, Daniel Rossen, Sylvan Esso, Son Lux, and My Brightest Diamond. he’s also an active composer, mixer, and producer for music and film. the twig twig project has received praise from Noisey, Line of Best Fit, Impose, Clash, GoldFlake Paint, and many more.
