Basil Bauer, an emerging country music star, is making his mark as a rising talent in the Canadian country music industry.

Basil is gaining recognition after releasing his singles "Keep Me Guessin'" and "Yours Someday," with more music soon to be released.

In addition to releasing new music, the dynamic multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter has recently taken the stage, opening for Canadian music legends Jim Cuddy, Jason McCoy, and Aaron Goodvin.

Basil is no stranger to the stage, following in his family's footsteps; he has been singing and performing for as long as he can remember. Born and raised in Waterloo, Ontario, Basil comes from a family of performers, including his father, the legendary Canadian fiddler Frank Leahy, and his mother, Lisa Bauer-Leahy, an Olympian in the '84 Summer Olympics.

A habitual daily songwriter who continues to hone his craft, Basil devotes his time to developing his music. His musical influences are a keystone to his music style and include many genres and artists, including Justin Bieber, Morgan Wallen, Bon Jovi, John Mayer, Blake Shelton, and Alan Jackson.

Working behind the scenes with vocal coach and lead singer of Chicago, Neil Donell, Basil continues on his musical journey, tirelessly writing and recording new music—making music that he believes can challenge the traditional boundaries of the country genre.
