Leo Middea is one of the most recognized
artists of the new generation of MPB (Brazilian Music), with a career in Brazil and Portugal and four albums released with important reviews and more than 164.000 monthly listeners only on Spotify. In 2022 Leo was invited to open two shows of the French Sheila (singer who sold the most records in France in the 1960s and 1970s) for 2000 people, at Salle Pleyel, one of the main concert halls in Paris.

Recognized as one of the great names of Brazilian music in Portugal, Middea was invited by the Prime Minister of Portugal to give a concert at the Bicentenary of Brazil's Independence.

Leo, at 27 years old, has traveled the world with his guitar and currently resides between Lisbon and Barcelona. Impossibility never took care of the carioca, "Vicentina" (2020) arrives with production by Paulo Novaes, arrangements by Polivalente and participation of the singer Janeiro. The project came out of the paper after Leo toured the streets asking for 1 euro per person to raise the money needed for the recording - which also became a mini doc that can be seen on Youtube. The record reached one million plays on Spotify in just nine months.

Between successful stints on his balcony during the pandemic, sold outs in London, Amsterdam, Rio, Lisbon... and 10 million streams on the Spotify digital platform alone, the singer and songwriter has been consolidating his career in Europe and Brazil and in 2023 he is preparing a tour for his new album, "Gente" recorded between Amsterdam and Paris.
