Leo Stannard: I Need Time

Young Leo Stannard recently played at the Union Chapel in London alongside Maverick Sabre, Tom Odell, Rae Morris and Lewis Mokler in front of 1200 people “It was a crazy lineup”, he claims. Not the sort of thing the average teenager can say they’ve accomplished by the age of 17. Stannard is also set to play at the Secret Garden Party, later in the year, with big names such as Regina Spektor, Modestep and Django Django. Having started playing the guitar at the age of nine, Stannard developed an interest in different styles of music.

He eventually took it upon himself to create his own style based on his influences. He claims, “I just thought it would be a good thing to do.” He eventually found fame on the internet when he performed an acoustic session with RTTV, a song he composed himself called “Please Don’t”. It was here, just under a year ago, where his talent was discovered by his manager Mark Murdoch, the founder of Mahogany Blog, which focuses more on filming artists in more intimate live sessions.

Leo Stannard: I Need Time Lyrics:
Maybe I should go on sleeping
Pulling time till it breaks
I’m not tryina go the distance
Like stones and suits that roam my way
I need time to watch the sun go
And I need time to clear my head
‘Cause I feel like everybody’s doing wrong again

And it seems like home good
Everybody’s running out
And no one’s feeling strong enough to say
And it seems like home good
Everybody’s running out
And no one’s feeling strong enough to say

And my mind pass me holding flowers
Too many busy days lead to regrets
‘Cause sometimes days can last for hours
I’m just a means to an end

And I need time to watch the sun go
And I need time to clear my head
‘Cause I feel like everybody’s doing wrong again

And it seems like home good
Everybody’s running out
And no one’s feeling strong enough to say
And it seems like home good
Everybody’s running out
And no one’s feeling strong enough to say

(x2)
Well don’t you stand there, look me in the eye
I’m not joking now, take me to the side
It’s not a lucky so please stop running
You will come pleases of then I don’t know why
So stop looking now directly at the sun
And stop rushing down the fires of the gun
I’m right here, so please stop doing these now
And lie down
