Some Day Soon is the debut and only solo album by singer-songwriter Kristian Leontiou. He subsequently joined a band, One Eskimo. The album was originally released on 31 May 2004 and then re-released on 4 April 2005 with new artwork and bonus track "Fast Car" - a single and cover version of Tracy Chapman's song, that Leontiou had previously played at different venues and had proved to be a favourite amongst fans.

Reception[edit]

Caroline Sullivan of The Guardian gave the album three stars out of five, saying that a "soulful, lover-man tenor, which was made for sweaty R&B action" had been "squandered on middle-of-the-road ballads", but concluding that "Leontiou's saving grace is a depressive edge that roughs up even the blandest tracks".[1]
