South Florida alternative indie singer/songwriter Alex Di Leo
has been making noise with the release of his debut solo EP So We Go, out now. The songwriter has been treating fans to videos including a live performance of “I’ve Been Waiting
” and two cinematic music videos for “Waking Up
,” and the EP’s title track, “So We Go
.” Today, Alex Di Leo has partnered up with Wolf in a Suit
to premiere the alluring lyric video for “When We First Met
,” produced by videographer Josiah Sampson. “When We First Met
” is a song about a sort-of forbidden love and overcoming all obstacles. Alex Di Leo explains further:
“‘When We First Met’ is about being in a relationship that is judged harshly from others. Standing strong together and not letting the judgmental, so called ‘friends’, influence it. Love is a special bond between two people. You shouldn’t feel afraid to pursue it to it’s fullest, even if others have a different or negative opinion of the relationship.”
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
