Leonardo Antinori was born in Rome Italy and now lives in Los Angeles CA. Growing up in various parts of the world he learned 5 languages and speaks them fluently. Having traveled and lived in countries such as Italy, Cameroon, Austria, Honduras and the US, he at a very young age developed a deep love, ear and ability to understand different cultures and styles of music.
His musical journey began as a young boy before he could even speak, hearing drums and music while living in Cameroon, Africa. He was also heavily influenced by the amount of International and pop music that was consumed by his parents growing up. Of a Latina mother and a Brazilian born, Italian father, there was no shortage of music at any point.
Later on, he became intrigued by the sounds on the radio, how they were crafted and made to sound the way they did. With influences such as Michael Jackson, U2, Phil Collins, Timbaland, Coldplay ; lush productions and anthemic songs ; he now uses his musical sensibilities to mold and craft new tasteful music and songs. In his early teens, recording & production as well as writing and singing became a passion that drove him to move to the US alone at age 18 to study and pursue a career in music.
After winning 2nd prize at an International singing and talent competition with his original written, produced and performed song "Day After Day" ( I.M.T.A in New York in the Summer of 2005) he made his move to Los Angeles where he started NewVine Music with a vision to assist artists and creators in making new sounds and distributing them through all media platforms including TV & Film to better reach the world.
Currently, having won 1st Place in an International song competition out of 6000 songs with an original song "Smile" (written, produced, performed) he is continually producing and writing new material, collaborating and producing /vocal producing other artists well as looking forward to several releases with his wife and band mate GIORGI+LEO www.giorgiandleo.com.
