Alex Di Leo is a singer-songwriter based in southern Florida. With influences ranging from Coldplay to Vance Joy to Arcade Fire, his style borrows elements from alt pop, indie folk and rock. The resulting blend yields an uplifting, emotional sound that's beat-driven and never short on melody. Di Leo has gathered much of his inspiration from traveling, using his songs as a way to share new experiences and journeys. He explains, “I’m constantly thinking of how short our lives are and how important it is to experience new things, take risks, and not be afraid of what could go wrong. Rather, we should focus on what could go right. Sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you a lot about the destination.” Alex toured in support of his debut "So We Go" EP, opening for Plain White T's and Cowboy Mouth.
He also played Sunfest, Riptide Music Festival and the Florida Music Festival in 2017. Still riding high from all the shows, Alex Di Leo is set to release new singles and EP in 2018. Spring/Summer tour dates will follow.
