Wayne Leffler

wayne leffler‘Lefty’ was born into a family with music running through their veins. From the southern suburbs of Sydney Australia, his musical influences are wide and varied which is reflected in his vast repertoire from old classics to modern groove based tunes.

Currently performing with his band, RUN the RED, as lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist (playing keyboards, guitar, mandolin and blues harp) and also performing in various duo and trio combinations including with his son, Joel Leffler.
