With the release of his highly anticipated independent EP Elevated, Leroy transcends the bounds of YouTube fame and emerges as a multi-faceted singer-songwriter and hit maker in his own right. Its just-dropped lead single, the infectiously seductive “Man of the Year,” is quickly capturing the hearts of millions of fans excited to hear a fresh side of the multi-talented singer-songwriter’s artistry. People magazine calls it “a soulful, lovesick bop reminiscent of Justin Timberlake and Ed Sheeran.” Pop culture tastemaker Perez Hilton affectionately states, “This is such a good slow jam! And we’re a sucker for a guy who sings in his falsetto!”
Testament to the caliber of industry talent that Leroy is vibing with in the studio these days, he wrote the track with Jeff “Gitty” Gitelman (Trey Songz, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige) and Kam Parker (Danity, Keyshia Cole). It was produced by Australian production duo Finatik N Zac (John Legend, Machine Gun Kelly, Chris Brown).
“It’s a song everyone who’s been in a relationship can relate to,” says Leroy, “but on a deeper level, it’s really about my love for and connection with my fans. When I sing, ‘It ain’t about me, its all about you,’ I’m talking directly to them. I want to be the best I can be because they’ve believed in and supported me for so long.”
Growing up in a humble family in the countryside of Vitoria, Spain, Leroy remembers as a young child getting goosebumps while listening to people sing, and feeling a strong connection to music that nothing else in his world came close to. “I always sang in my room and in the shower for fun,” he says, “and then one day around the age of six or seven, one of my sister’s friends heard me and said, ‘OMG, I thought that was the radio.’ My mom had a guitar that my grandpa gave her to sing along with in church when she was a kid, and she kept it like a decoration in our house. When I was about 14, my curiosity got the best of me and I began touching its strings and was mesmerized that they created such a beautiful sound. My mom gave me permission to use it and I began teaching myself guitar.”
In addition to racking up a dizzying amount of views, Leroy’s uploads attracted the attention of some major industry forces, including Grammy winning producer/songwriter Jim Jonsin, who flew the singer from Spain directly to his recording studio in Florida. Sanchez began working
with numerous renowned producers and songwriters, including Rico Love, who he wrote his 2015 single “By My Side” with.
Earlier in 2017, Leroy did his first-ever headline tour throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe and was excited to see so many of the venues sold out. Later this year, reflective of his status as an international star, he will be touring in support of Elevated, with dates scheduled for the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia. “I’m so excited about traveling to and performing in fascinating new places and bringing joy to people by sharing the full range of what I do.”
Last year, Sanchez was recognized by the Teen Choice Awards with a nomination in the “Next Big Thing” category; this year, he is up for “Choice Music Web Star.” In 2016, Leroy was also nominated in the “Cover to Cover” category by the Premios Juventud Awards, a show for Spanish speaking celebrities honoring various fields of popular culture.
“When the opportunity to do my first EP came along, I started thinking about where my career is at right now,” he says. “My fans have been so kind and gracious to me, and I feel really excited about sharing a whole other side of my artistry with them on Elevated. I’ve loved making the videos, but writing, recording and releasing a full project, of original music, is like entering a fresh new world of creative possibilities. Another reason I called it ‘Elevated’ is that every song, even the ones that start out kind of sad, ultimately has an empowering message.”
Mario has had the privilege to share the stage and studio with music icons including Pentatonix (opening for them on tour), Prince, Justin Bieber, Meghan Trainor (New Orleans Jazz Fest 2017), John Legend (NBC’s Duets), Michael McDonald, Philip Bailey (of Earth, Wind & Fire), John Elefante (of Kansas), Jim Peterick (of Survivor), Bill Champlin (of Chicago), Paula Cole, Lalah Hathaway, Ben E. King, Post Modern Jukebox and many more!
In October 2016 Mario released his debut EP ‘Heart Of Gold’ which soared to #33 on the iTunes Pop Charts and also had songs featured on the MTV Movie & TV Awards, iHeart Radio Music Awards and the independent feature film ‘WTF’.
