About Alex Di Leo:
Alex Di Leo began his solo career after his reputable rock band Wyld Fly parted ways in 2014. Spending the next year writing and recording music, Di Leo gathered most of his inspiration from traveling, using his songs as an uplifting way to share new experiences and journeys. Di Leo explains, "I'm constantly thinking of how short our lives are and how important it is to experience new things, take risks, and to not be afraid of what could go wrong, but what could go right. Sometimes it's the journey that teaches you a lot about the destination"
In 2016, Alex and his new alternative sound, inspired by indie, pop, and folk, made its debut at the For The Love Music Festival, followed by an appearance at the Undertow Jam Music Festival, garnered attention from notable outlets such as BalconyTV. With influences ranging from Coldplay to Vance Joy, Arcade Fire and more, Alex Di Leo and his band bring their fans uplifting songs that get fans singing along to enchanting, hook-filled melodies.
"Alexander Di Leo's music has a refreshing sound and is a musician's total package. Alex and his band look like they are having a great time on stage, it's infectious. His set at the 'For The Love Music Festival' was one of the most attended and one of the most enjoyable sets from the festival." -Josh Miller, Founder, C&I Studios & For The Love Music Festival
