Leonardo Price - Male Singer
The youngest of five children, Leonardo Price began developing his love for music at a very early age. He was influenced by his older siblings who had a band that played funk, disco and pop music, and his parents listened to soul, R & B, the sounds of Stax records and the Motown Sound. He began honing his smooth soulful style in school talent shows and local talent showcases. This led to small social functions and then large coporate events. Leonardo credits his smooth baritone sound to artists like Jeffrey Osborn, Barry White, Frank Sinatra, Sam Cooke and many more. His vocal ability has given him the great privilege or working along side many well known musicians and artists. Leonardo has been a lead male vocalist with Encore Band since 2009. His soulful rendition of your favorite songs will leave you wanting much more.
