About leddrain

Leddrain is the work of Philip Seibel, a singer/songwriter with an ability to evolve many different and imaginative styles on the guitar. I first met him when I was busking Switzerland in the Summer of 1996. He was around 16 then and we exchanged our self penned songs on my guitar. I was amazed by his talent, but he didn't even have a guitar. So I shed my usual 'on the road loner' tag and agreed to team up for awhile on a busking jaunt. My idea was to get the money he would need for his own guitar. At first, we shared my guitar with the non player taking the hat round. Then we got bongos, but the quest to extract the sword from the stone (get Phil a guitar) proved to be far from simple.
