Aged just 19, Imaginary Friend is an immensely precocious talent, he burst onto the Dubstep scene in 2010 with the vibrant ?How To Use It? and ?Reject ?Em All? which are soon going to be released on Breathe Records respectively. His Productions possess a rare duality of intense and pure dark energy, the soundtrack to a black crow on an interstellar journey.
Imaginary Friend's musical peers include Hironobu hagiwara(IIHD), Naofumi Takahashi(CODE7023), UN.CO. and Booker, the recognized tastemaker and man behind Breathe Records who indentified him as one to watch when we named him as a member of his digital label.
Imaginary Friend's music can be heard on ?soundcloud? mainly and we hope soon on ?youtube?, since he signed with Pixels On Space for a music clip on one of his tracks, and in testament to the level of interest in this Thessalonikian talent, continues to be viewed by a lot of fans and supporters.
Imaginary Friend has remixed Nathan Fake, James Holden and Depeche Mode, his productions are battered by DJ's including Booker, Circo Inverso, UN.CO. and Skone.
Born to Techno and adopted by Dubstep, Imaginary Friend is reluctant to be classified, but his soul drenched productions have been described as ?broken cycle on 12?s? and ?black snow falling upside?. Whatever you call it, as we move through autumn 2010 and beyond, Imaginary Friend is one of the artists who represent the Greek Dubstep scene in the distance and by the time the light of his electric melody's reaches our eardrums, with participations on many gigs as a member of Breathe Records alongside Digital Mystikz, Joker, Booker, Circo Inverso, UN.CO, Burning City Soundystem, Skone and more, unfortunately we've never saw him acting live, since he joined the forces of Greek Army, having zero time to prepare something worth it. Rumors say we can catch him on January 2011 introducing a really big name of Dubstep Scene in association with Lovelight Bookings, Breathe Records and Undersky Collective, which one is leaded by himself.
2) Imaginary Friend is a seven member collective indie pop band from Finland and has released a self-titled minialbum in 2004 and a full lenght called 'Sister Dear' in 2006.

Imaginary Friend was formed in 2002 when Neal Leatherman was really bored. Having picked up the guitar only 5 years prior, Neal found himself in a prolific period of songwriting. As a result, he recorded three albums' worth of this early material. Although many of these songs were very basic, the seeds of Imaginary Friend's future had been sown.
In early 2003, he reunited with an old friend ? ex-URI classmate Jeff Carroll ? and the future of Imaginary Friend as we know it began to take shape. Jeff brought a technical background (in both recording and musicianship) to the table and helped Neal produce his next set of songs more fully. The result of these sessions was another set of demo albums, Clean My Bass and Chord To Nowhere.
Following the completion of these albums, the duo began writing the songs for what would become A, B & C. This period, between 2004 and 2007, represents the true gelling of the band, as both members collaborated on the songs from start to finish.
Imaginary Friend continues to write and record material, and probably will until such time as there are no liquor stores within a five mile radius.
4) Imaginary Friend is an enigmatic acoustic folk pop artist. He produced The Imaginary EP, has been touring with Kina Grannis, and is active on You Tube, Facebook, and Twitter under the name ImaginaryFriendMusic.
