Leo&Tingley are Chasing Shadows, a newly formed acoustic duo from East Sussex. Charlotte Tingley can most often be found at her piano, performing heart-rending covers and originals and covers. Her gentle, melodious tones can turn to powerful ballards in a moment. When not doing music, Charlotte's passion is in film, while finding the time to manage an independent cinema in St Leonards, Kino-Teatr. Leo Snook is a reformed rocker who has returned to his folk and acoustic roots in the last few years. Main guitarist for the band, he combines rock, folk and jazz influences into his playing and singing. His writing is almost exclusively sad songs about the sea. Their joint sound is still very new, but they hope to win crowds over with their unique sound, blend of styles and sides enjoyment of what Chasing Shadows do.
