Starting in the first ’90s being a single artist, Neil Leyton became known throughout Toronto’s and later Canada’s independent music scene as lead singer from the Conscience Pilate, a glam rock-band. From 1995 to 1997, Leyton toured using the music group, but contractual complications led the music group to dissolve in 1997. After that, Leyton continues to be quite occupied with other tasks, including his personal Fading Methods label. The label offers offices in Canada and in European countries and houses such functions as Plasma Blast, the Pariahs, as well as the Sin-Tones. In 2000, Leyton released My New Spirit, an recording of new materials plus some cover tunes. He in addition has appeared in a number of market showcases in Canada and internationally.
