SAVED is a retro-mechanical music show built around rescued 70s home organs. Along with cassettes, a turntable, AM radios and a modified whisk, Leak weaves musical joy into the surprisingly beautiful mundanity of daily life.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “..mesmerisingly poetic compositions”   
Anne-Charlotte Gerbaud, Fringe Biscuit

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “..it is Leak’s quaint yet ingeniously deployed array of pre-digital technology that fascinate.”   
Jim Gilchrist, The Scotsman

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “He walks the tightrope between earnest and flippant with disarming ease, neither over-egging nor under-playing his abundant creativity. Inventive and charming, Saved is a joyful way to spend the afternoon.” 
George Sully, Fest magazine

“Its tone is so distinctive, so deliberately dowdy, so utterly just-so. It knows exactly what it’s doing and it does it sublimely.”   
Lyn Gardner, Stagedoor 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️“..fascinating to watch, and often amusing, if not laugh-out-loud funny.”   
David Chadderton, British Theatre Guide

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 “Boldly Inventive, quirky and challenging, Saved is a clever thought-piece, and its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe deserves to find its moment.”  Helen Tope, The Reviews Hub

“it is a complex beast, made to look so easy – and that is sheer genius right there”   
Donald Stewart,  Fringe Review 

“Brian Eno, David Bowie, Sparks, Kraftwerk, Morrissey and Acorn Antiques – loved it.”   
Martin Mendelssohn,  Audience Reviewer

“A joy, a delight, whimsical and utterly engaging. Seek it out, there seriously is nothing like it”   
Andrew Meadowcroft, Audience Reviewer
