Leon Brock's music is strongly rooted in American country rock and Americana, but bears the characteristics of the singer / songwriter tradition. Brock is strongly influenced by songwriters like Townes van Zandt, Steve Earle, Joe Ely and Hank Williams. He was the founder of the Dutch alt. country band The Red Sea Sharks, Together with bass player Martin Vermeer they recorded the CD Ordinary People live on March 15th 2009 (11 songs on a Sunday afternoon).
