Alex Di Leo released So We Go in 2016 and he took some time to answer questions about the release, what comes next, and more. Check out our interview with him below.
What is your first memory of being interested in music?
My first memory of being interested in music was when I randomly received my first guitar from my grandma for my 10th birthday and started taking lessons. Shortly after my parents took me to see The Fray and thats when I started looking into other bands and artists.
When did you realize you wanted to be a singer?
It wasn’t until I was 13, when I won my first middle school talent show, that I really felt the urge to discover what I could do with music. Ever since then it’s been what I constantly think about and work on throughout my days.
What was the songwriting and recording process like for ‘So We Go’?
A lot of the inspiration came rather quickly..having a brand new exciting, adventurous relationship had me coming up with so many cheery and positive vibes. My pen was at the paper and my fingers were sliding on the frets constantly. I’ve never experienced such a comfortable flow of ideas, writing, and formulating them into songs.
How has the EP been received by your fans?
So far I’ve received many compliments on the EP and for the most part it’s been very positive feedback. But I like receiving input from all ends, whether it’s positive or negative, I learn from what others have to say and it helps me and others I work with progress in many ways.
What are your plans for 2017?
I can’t believe it’s 2017. This past year was the quickest one yet and I’m so grateful for everything that occurred. I’m looking forward to what’s to come this year. Be sure to be on the look out for a single I’ll be releasing around the end of January and soon after a video for it. I’ll definitely be hitting the road around mid March/April.
