My name is Rio Francesco Leyva. I was born in San Francisco, California. As a child I grew up in a household of 4, me being the middle child. Growing up my mom home schooled my siblings and I. After high school I attended Portland community college for two years. While in

college I studied music production.

Struggles growing up, how he overcame them.

Growing up with four siblings was tough because a lot of the times it seemed like my parents were giving me enough attention. As a child with many siblings it is hard tgo ask for divided attention from my parents when I know they have three other children they have to support.

What make him get into music

What made me get into music was the fact that I was able to create my own music and beats that I enjoy. When I started playing piano as a kid there were many things which allowed me to feel the freedom of creating, and as I got older I realized the greatness of producing.

Why is he different than others musicians

I feel that what makes me different from other producers is that I make music. I feel that artists will have an easy time writing to and finding their flow. Sometimes it’s hard for me to differentiate between music I enjoy making and music that artists will enjoy creating.

What takaways and advice would he give to aspiring musicians

My advice for aspiring producers is to never give up and when things are not going as well just keep grinding and persevering cause your time will come.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years

In five years I know I’ll still be producing although I’ll have a lot more accomplishments. Hopefully by that time ill have over 10 platinum plaques and own a mansion in the hills in LA.

What’s story you wanna communicate to fans?

A story I want my fans to understand is that no matter how much you think you aren’t going to succeed there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Hard work pays off and people need to understand that the music industry is not an easy task but if you are dedicated you will make it.

What motivates your music?

My parents are my biggest motivators and they have always told me to follow my dreams.
