Growing up in a musical family on the Island of Curacao, Leo-Tan was gifted with the ability to sing and play instruments. At age seven he started playing guitar and shortly after began singing and playing in different churches on the island.
As the years went by peer pressure got the best of him and he started to rebel against all the rules and regulations of the church. He got involved in competitions and was toasting for money or for anything that was worth competing for. His desire for money became dominant, leaving no time for church anymore. Instead he spent his days hustling in the streets with his friends. Things got out of hand so he was sent away at age 13 to Trinidad, to complete his secondary and high school education.
Returning to Saint Marten he joined a local band, and was playing for Carnival and other Caribbean festivities, playing electric guitar, and singing and toasting for Reggae and Dancehall repertoires. However, doing all of these things Leo-Tan was not satisfied with the progress and support of the locals and the lifestyle, so he left in 1991 to The Netherlands.
Ever since then he was involved with numerous projects, performances and interviews in The Netherlands and the Caribbean, and began singing and performing in church again. Leo-Tan is presently busy with his upcoming album. He feels it's about time the world gets what they deserve, good quality lyrics and music. He sings all of the vocals in his tracks including the dancehall toasting.
Leo-Tan has been busy for a very long time, starting in the Caribbean and then crossing the oceans to Europe. Leo-Tan has performed in Germany, Austria, England, Belgium, Bermuda, and all over The Netherlands.
