Leather Academy Biography

Leather Academy is an indie band that started as an international co-production between American William Byron, Israeli Yael Brener and Frenchman Thierry Dumas (a.k.a Banfile).
Byron and Brener made first contact in 2007 through Craigslist, when he was looking for a drummer. They maintained a long distance correspondence, exchanging demos and ideas, until finally deciding to form Leather Academy. A random Myspace correspondence has lead to a cooperation with Dumas, an eclectic musician and radio host from Limousin, who soon joined the band as a third member, on October 2009.
The band has released a first EP on August 2010, which was partially mixed by acclaimed producer/engineer Mark Plati (Bowie, The Cure, New Order etc). They have a gradually growing fan base and radio airplays worldwide.
After having performed few times in Tel-Aviv and France (including Festival de Sedieres), Brener and Dumas are now situated in France and recording songs for the next album.

Their song Thoroughly was selected to be featured on Delta Airlines' Indie Showcase, as well as a music compilation in Tel-Aviv. Dark Windows was featured on French label FatalObject's compilation. Their song 222 was selected to be featured in the soundtrack of Israeli action film Radical.
