One eskimO Biography

One eskimO are a four piece indie rock group from London, England consisting of Kristian Leontiou (vocals), Adam Falkner (drums), Pete Rinaldi (guitar), Jamie Sefton (bass and horns). Frontman Leontiou has had past experience in the music industry in which, he was marketed towards the popular culture and in 2004, had a top ten hit in the UK and a widely successful album. Uncomfortable with the music and image he was pressured into presenting, Leontiou broke away from the pop scene and embarked on the One eskimO project. In an interview with the Guardian Newspaper, he said:
“ "I wanted to create a sound of my own: magical, ambient, filmic, acoustic, beautiful and meaningful. I wanted to write about how I felt about life, love, losses and failures, highs and lows, even heartbreaks. But also about how amazing human life is and how mind-blowing our very existence is." ”

They have a fan in Janice Long who presents her own show on BBC Radio 2 and invited the band into the studio to record an interview and a brief, three song session. Long played released tracks "Kandi" and "Hometime" regularly during her slot.

One eskimO supported Tori Amos on her 2009 Sinful Attraction Tour and subsequently released the 4-track "One eskimO EP".

They performed on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in the US in March of 2010.
