Leopold And His Fiction
Leopold And His Fiction
We tend to remember artists that walk that fine line between chaos and control. Teetering on the edge of oblivion, and just stepping back always makes art, in any medium, that much more exciting. In pop music, when an artist or group works from a formula, and warps and bends that formula, it’s a beautiful thing. Austin based, Leopold and his Fiction is one of those groups. The band is a stripped-down outfit that spices its folk-inflected rock ‘n’ roll with heavy doses of garage and bits of psych.

Rascal Martinez
Hailing from the Midwest, young Rascal Martinez began playing music at a young age. Rascal began his multi-instrumentalist career in the family basement, learning guitar and drums and playing alongside his older brother. Throughout school, Rascal continued to develop his craft and began writing his own music, which channels an eclectic mixture of Americana and Folk. Early recordings of the duo were done in the family basement using free software and a few shoddy microphone stands.
Ceasing every opportunity to perform, Rascal began playing basement shows to mostly family and friends. His insatiable appetite to perform and passion for the craft grew along with his love of making people happy through his music. After graduating high school in 2012, Rascal entered college and continued writing and performing around the Midwest.
The young crooner released his self-titled EP, “The Long Road” in August, 2013. Rascal followed this with single, “I Love You Anyway” in August, 2014. Rascal’s most recent self-titled LP, “The Original (Acoustic Sessions),” was released in May, 2015.
