leo. is a young, multi-million-streaming performer and singer/songwriter from Portugal and the UK. Drawing from acoustic singer-songwriter and indie, the music is a raw interpretation of life and has created a safe space where listeners can feel understood.
Emerging from rigorous classical training, leo. recorded his first single in 2018 from his bedroom in Portugal. It was in 2019 that he released his seismic single Despair, lifting leo. to over 20 million streams. It laid the foundations to his sound, the nostalgic harmonies to lush instrumentation, drawing on earlier inspirations like Dodie, Cavetown and Ricky Montgomery.
Following the release of Drink My Soul in 2021 and Letters From Dreamland in 2022, leo. teamed up with indie label ADSRecords to take his sound to stage. Leo’s fan community is a broad family and is perhaps his greatest achievement. It is becoming constantly better connected and is set to gather around leo.’s biggest offering to date, coming in 2023.
