Manners McDade Signs Composer Adrian Leung to Its Roster

Australian/Hong Kong composer and multi-instrumentalist Adrian Leung has signed to Manners McDade's roster. Adrian is a classically trained composer and multi-instrumentalist now based in the UK. He studied composition at the Conservatorium of Music (Sydney University) and the Australian Film Television and Radio School and is currently a member of the BFI x BAFTA Crew.  Adrian has scored many award-winning films including most recently ‘When A City Rises’ a feature documentary about the Hong Kong protests. He has also worked on advertising campaigns for Dove, Channel 5, Patron Tequila, Guinness, Barnardo's.

Adrian’s solo project, Drexler, sees him combining piano, strings, ambient electronics and field recordings collected on his travels in a modern cinematic style that is raw, earnest and textured. He likes to manipulate and mangle sounds and instruments turning them into something contemporary and new-sounding. Drexler’s album ‘HANDLES’ was released in last year via Rhodium and his releases have received airplay on JJJ, KEXP, Soho Radio, Scala Radio, Classic FM and Fbi Radio. He has also curated playlists for the BBC, 3RRR and Contemplative Classical. 

As a person of colour, Adrian is particularly interested in diverse stories that explore culture, identity and underrepresented voices.
