E8 Leo Maia

Below you can find the full video podcast episode from our YouTube channel. To listen on all other platforms, click here.

On this episode, I get to speak to multi-talented prog rocker Leo Maia – a singer, composer & self-producer of his newly found solo career. Originally from Brazil & currently settled in Canada, Leo began his current trajectory after experiencing a catalytic crisis of health. He spent his recovery writing & learning to produce, whilst creating his first single “Pneumothorax” that tells that very story. He’s since released his second single “Sonhos” and goes from strength to strength – at last able to demonstrate his immense talents to the world. It’s an inspiring story that brings us up to now, where I got to have the pleasure of chatting with Leo all about it. We also discussed many great topics; such as progressive music, composing, production & jazz! Leo is very knowledgeable about a lot of these things and I felt like I learned a lot from him. Hopefully you will too! Enjoy 🙂
