South Florida alternative indie singer/songwriter 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, Di Leo 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 and Music Ate the Nation. 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.
Alex Di Leo released his debut EP So We Go on November 4th and since its release, the EP has been played in rotation on 110 college radio stations, charted on 9 radio stations’ Top 20, taking the #1 spot on Ithaca, New York’s WICO, and made the countdown for IndiMusic TV’s Top 21 Countdown this past December.
