Tampa native Leo Waters is poised to revolutionize the music scene. At the age of 15 he trekked out of Florida to be a professional dancer, sharing the stage with prominent figures like DaBaby and Coi Leray. In that way, his journey really began in a much more old school manner than most of his contemporaries, such as the likes of icons like Jennifer Lopez, Tupac and Madonna whose career began as backup dancers. While immersed in a world of extraordinary talent, Waters discovered his passion for singing and songwriting. While continuing to dance, he ventured into crafting his own music.
Everything truly changed when Waters embarked on a trip to LA this year, encountering the producer Donn Robb. Robb, known for his work with top-tier artists such as the Kid Laroi, Juice Wrld, G Herbo, and 24kGoldn, became Waters’ collaborator and mentor. The duo have since crafted an immense amount of music they’re sitting on, but the story kicks off with “Smoke + Mirrors”, a tune Leo began to tease on Tik Tok this summer, gaining millions of impressions in the process. With its intricately layered production and absolutely scintillating melodies, this track is poised to put Leo on the map.
