I’m from Duluth, Minnesota.
Above is a picture of me when I was 6- ready for Halloween.
I work at a deli to pay the bills, but been playing guitar and writing songs since the teen yearz. Maybe 14? Who knows. I’ve played in a few bands over the years, but have always had a solo project in some form. Tried out various names- but ultimately here we are with: LEIFHINKEL.
I’ve released a couple EPs and am currently working on my first full-length album.



I have been working on a full length album for a little while now. Originally, I started recording this in 2019 with a friend- thinking of only doing a couple songs together. Well, I LOVED how the recordings turned out, so pushed to do a whole album. We finished recording almost everything before the pandemic hit- but obviously, things were brought to a halt. For a while, I thought that might be it for this project, but I have picked it back up, brushed it off, and am finishing this damn thing.
I am excited to share this with you when it’s complete. –
