Six months before the release of Leroy's eponymous debut, four of its tracks were secured for film and TV spots: the blues-etched opening track "Good Time" (ABC sitcom The Job), the hip-hop-inflected "New World" (the film 10 Things I Hate About You), the hot-buttered soul vibology of "Trans Am" (TV's Felicity), and the straight-up rocker "Make It Hot" (two upcoming films, Chain of Fools and Joy Ride). That's not bad for a guy who was, just a few years ago, holding down stints as a gas-station attendant and cable TV technician. Like Lenny Kravitz, the multi-instrumentalist Leroy isn't afraid for his music to be a deep-baked melting pot of influences. With co-producer Rob Cavallo (Alanis Morissette, Green Day), Leroy has certainly crafted one satisfying debut. As for future singles, Hollywood should give serious consideration to the hook-laden "Away" and the Seal-like "Error of My Ways."—MP
