Lea Baruffato was born in Argentina to an Italian father and an Argentinian mother. He then travelled to Spain and then to London, UK.
He began playing the guitar in his hometown of Argentina, inspired mostly by British and American bands. Later, he became interested in singing as well, so he chose to take lessons with several vocal instructors, establishing a distinct and unique style as a result of his heritage and travels.
Always on the go, he creates songs about his life experiences with the hopes of affecting people’s spirits.
Read on as he takes us on this magnificent trip while also providing us with an in-depth look at his most recent music.
How did you get into music?
Oh, that is a story! I was probably around 8 years old and I had an older cousin that used to live at my grandma’s and he was a guitarist.
So, every time I was going to visit her I was sneaking into my cousin’s bedroom and grabbing his guitar. I was captivated by the sound so I guess that is when I fell in love with music.
What field or genre are you into and how would you describe it?
I would say, I’m into acoustic pop/rock
What were your first project and the people you worked with?
The first band that I got involved with was in my hometown and I used to be the bass player for them! That is how I started
Who or what inspires you or motivates you? And why?
I would say life. Life by itself is so inspirational and complex so if you are aware of you can never run out of stories.
Any models you look up to? With reason(s) why?
This is always what I’ve said in the past and several times, the only idol that I have is my father. Actually, I dedicated a song to him that is called “My Hero”
What do you look out for in this line of business?
I do music because is my passion and my gift as well. So I believe that everyone has a gift and is each of our responsibility to share it with the world, otherwise, what is the point of having it?
What are some of the challenges you face in your career path?
Music, by itself, is beautiful, the music business is something completely different. Is one of the most competitive industries in the world and can be really hard to make a living out of it.
How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
I believe that gave a big opportunity to everyone who wants to express by creating music which is amazing but with 60.000 songs being uploaded to Spotify a day makes the market over-saturated.
Do you have any advice for aspiring songwriters?
Probably the best advice I got from a mentor was “Write from your heart” and I have been sticking to that
What is your current project about?
I’m working on an album that I’ve started to release single after single since January. Hopefully, 2022 is gonna be full of new music for me!
What are your hobbies?
I do enjoy the gym, motorbikes, water sports and travelling!
What is one message you would give to your fans?
I always try to share a message in each song that I write, so I would say, give listen to my songs and hopefully you will get inspired by one or more!
