The single features Leone’s emotive and soulful voice, and his incredible rap skills (1:32).
Leone was born and raised in Burbank, CA, and was raised in the music industry, starting out studying piano and jazz theory, and then picked up guitar, bass and a bit of saxophone. When he found his voice is when he started focusing on performing music. Leone was a lead soloist in the top group at Burroughs, and arranged choral pieces for them all throughout high school. During that time, his choir performed on Oprah Winfrey, NBC’s “The Voice,” at the Hollywood Bowl, including two tours in Beijing and Hong Kong, China representing the US.
“I’m not a ‘blue-eyed soul’ artist. My sound is that of the roots of soul music. Besides…my eyes are green,” shares Leone.
