Claus H. Leonhardt has been toughed by the west coast music since the beginning of the 80´s. At that time he was listening to the swedish radio program “Soul Corner” hosted by Mats Nileskar. In the middle of the 80´s he brought the west coast music to the listeners and especially Airplay & Bill Champlin were among the favorite songs.

At that time Claus H. Leonhardt open his eyes for the production of Jay Graydon & David Foster. After that many other west coast musicians like: Bill LaBounty, Robbie Dupree, Christopher Cross, Greg Mathieson, Stephen Bishop, EW&F, Al Jarreau and Ricky Peterson has been a big inspiration for him.

The Dice project is music made together with the Norwegian musician Tom Hansen, that early 2010 released his solo album “Brazilian Nights”. Claus Leonhardt teamed up with Tom Hansen to start working on recording some of Tom´s song, and the final result is the EP with 4 songs.
