Kristian Leontiou – Shining
Kristian Leontiou is a Londoner from a Greek Cypriot family which released his debut in 2004. This is the second single from his debut certified gold album Some Day Soon. This is my favourite track from him although it peaked at 13 on the UK Singles chart.
He parted ways with Polydor a year after and later became the lead singer of One eskimO.
If I recall correctly, I was working at H&M at that time in Covent Garden and Knightsbridge. The song does transport me back to those days when I lived in Queensway and would walked through Hyde Park to get to work. There are nights when I worked late and I would jump through the locked gates to get through to the other side of Hydepark back home from Knightsbridge. I definately did loads of walking back then.
Hope you enjoy this song. Happy Friday folks!
