About the band
"I stand here, before you now, truthfully unafraid. Why? Becuase I believe something you do not? No, I stand here without fear because I remember. I remember that I am here not because of the path that lies before me but because of the path that lies behind me"
Leo Vance is a 23-year-old Hip Hop recording artist and music producer from Toronto, Canada. His musical roots stem from being raised in Detroit, Michigan with both parents heavily in the music scene. From the age of thirteen the self-taught artist learned to play many instruments and spent most of his summers in the studio with his father. Through his teen years Leo wrote, developed and produced his own sound by arranging and writing original music. A serious artist, Leo works hard at his craft on a daily basis, never taking anything for granted.
Drawing from personal trials and an accident that nearly took his life, Leo’s music is personal. Leo leaves it all on the stage when he performs. His performance and winning “Break Through Artist Of The Year Award” at the annual Canadian Television Hip Hop Awards in May 2017 put a well-earned spotlight on the young performer. In the summer of 2018, Leo opened for DJ Pauly D at Interchange Park in Vaughan, Ontario to a full sold out crowd. Later that year he was asked to perform for the Media Release Party at Indie Week here in Toronto. He received a nomination for Indie Week’s BEST URBAN Award-2018
