In 2010, he left his hometown and moved to New Orleans, Louisiana to study music both in academia (Loyola University New Orleans, BA in Composition, BA in Jazz Studies, Minor in Music Industry Studies) as well as from the incredible musicians in the musical mecca.
For the past 2 years, Nic Leo has been traveling around the country, exploring and documenting music scenes in various cities while putting on a performance series called “Sights and Sounds”, which features performing artists of all varieties (singer-songwriters, poets, actors, spoken word artists, comedians ect.) that have storytelling as a central theme of their work.
He now resides in Los Angeles, CA, where he is working on songwriting, film-scoring, and the occasional performance of his impassioned, intimate songs and stories.
What makes Nic Leo such a valuable and special creator and collaborator is his shameless vulnerability, intense critical discourse, and forever-naive hopefulness.
