Every so often a musical chemistry is made by the merging of two great talents who meet each other on the journey of life.
GIORGI+LEO, both sing, both write and LEO produces (www.newvinemusic.com). They may come from two different sides of the world, but together, they create beautiful music.
Their life story began when they met, a chance encounter at a grocery store in Los Angeles where GIORGI is from and LEO had moved to pursue a career in music. They have been inseparable since. He produced a version of “When Doves Cry” the top selling U.S. single of 1984 by Prince, which caught the attention of and approval by Quinton Dean, a guitarist for Prince, who asked if he could play guitar on the track. After a few months writing and producing their 1st record “Smile” from LA to London, the duo returned to Los Angeles to put the finishing touches on their debut record at Interscope Studios/ NewVine Music Studios.
"SMILE" won 3 International Song Competitions ( Unsigned only | ISC | Radio Airplay Love Songs Contest ) including 1st place among 6000 songs "Unsigned Only" 2016 which was judged by celebrity judges such as "The Killers", "Run DMC", "Bone Thugs N Harmony", Music magazines (Rolling Stone/ Paste) top Songwriter Aimee Mann, major label Executives and A&R's. . "Smile" was released on 11.11.2016 and has now been selected for an upcoming musical feature film. This song in particular was a very personal, vulnerable yet uplifting song which LEO wrote for GIORGI after the passing of their 1yr. old daughter Vita. This song captures the emotion and hope that GIORGI+LEO have found for the future after going through a personal devastating loss. They continue strong and determined to make a difference and bring hope and love through their music.
Their latest song "Baila" a bi-lingual true summer single co-written with Latin Grammy Nominated writer Ale Alberti is being radio played and heating up the dance floors Internationally.
Having completed a US West-Coast tour, they have also garnered strong brands and synch interest. Being a prolific writer, producer and vocal producer, LEO has also made songs with his company NewVine Music that are now on TV & Film on such networks as MTV, Vh1, BET, Bravo, E!, NBC and more. GIORGI+LEO are currently releasing 3 new singles and music videos which will be aired Internationally on MTV, VEVO, Vh1 and Revolt. They have just performed a live acoustic version of “Smile” on a CBS radio show (Ken Radio) and are looking forward to their new releases and International touring.
