What is your stage name?
Leo Golo

Is there a story behind your stage name?
Yes, actually my real name is Martí Gómez López. Golo is my nickname that I’ve had forever. It comes from the first two letters of my surnames. And Leo was one of the other options that my parents had when they were deciding on my name.

Where do you find inspiration?
For me inspiration comes from music that I listen to and experiences that I’ve lived. Every time that something happens in my life I try to find a way to create a song about it. That’s my coping mechanism and what really makes me happy.

What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
I’ve always loved music since I was a little kid. When my parents took me to a concert I was always in shock, observing every little detail and listening to every instrument that was on stage. I also started playing piano when I was 3 years old and never stopped playing it.

Are you from a musical or artistic family?
No one in my family is a professional musician but my father, who passed away last year, played the guitar everyday as a hobby. That was a big part of my life since I was a little kid and inspired me so much to make music myself.

Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?
I guess just myself. The music industry is kind of a mess and for me it hasn’t even been a choice. It was more of a feeling that I had to do this, no plan B. Like if I had no other option because that’s what the world needs me to do.

How did you learn to sing/write/to play?
I studied piano since I was 3 years old and two years ago I finished music college. I started singing on my own when I was a kid and then I did a lot of lessons with different teachers and singers. The songwriting part I learned it myself writing songs since I was a teenager and I also participated in some songwriting camps.

What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
The first big concert I attended was Rihanna in 2013 with my dad. It was incredible!

How could you describe your music?
I always say it’s Swedish pop made in Barcelona because I really learn a lot from the Swedish songwriters and their songwriting process inspires me to create better songs. Apart from that I would say is a mix of Pop, Hopebeat and Adult Contemporary.

Describe your creative process.
It usually goes like this:
1- I meet a boy and I like him
2- They don’t like me back or they are mean with me or ghost me or whatever bad thing you can imagine
3- I come up with a concept for the song based on that experience
4- I go on the piano or Logic and try to write a song that feels honest and catchy
5- I record myself and produce it or if I’m working with a producer I show them the demo and then we produce it together.
6- I show it to my mom and my best friends and hope for the best

What is your main inspiration?
In the songwriting aspect the whole Cheiron Studios team and also people like Ilya Salmanzadeh, Oscar Holter, Shellback… On the artist level my main inspirations have been Tove Lo, Valley, The Band CAMINO, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Marcus & Martinus.

What musician do you admire most and why?
Max Martin. He is the best songwriter/producer in history. Why? Melodic Math. It all comes down to the melody of a song and he knows that.

Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?
A lot. And it’s still evolving. I released an EP 3 years ago which is pretty different from what I’m doing now. With every album or EP I evolve and I learn a lot of things. It’s really crazy everything you learn when creating and recording an album.

Who do you see as your main competitor?
Nobody for now. I’m too focused on finding my path and creating the music that really matters to me and my listeners.

What are your interests outside of music?
I don’t know what you’re talking about. Outside of music? Never heard of that.

If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?
Something related to the stage like an actor. I really think I belong in the stage.

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?
How difficult it is for people to care about your music and their decreasing attention span. And also the amount of money you have to spend and invest as an artist.

If you could change one thing in the music industry, what would it be?
There’s a lot to change. The first thing being how the industry treats songwriters. It’s not okay not getting paid. It’s not okay not receiving master royalties. It’s not okay for artists that didn’t write the song to ask for publishing.

And also record labels have too much power but they wouldn’t exist without artists so I think it’s time to demand big changes in the way the industry is structured. Now they only sign artists that have already a big following so they don’t have to spend money and time developing them. As I’ve said, a lot to change.

What are your plans for the coming months?
I just released my second single “See Your Face” but after that I will be releasing more singles and of course an album is coming later this year. I’m super excited for you to hear the new songs.

Do you have any artistic collaboration plans?
One of the next singles is a collab that I can’t wait to share with you. So get ready because the song is a vibe.

What message would you like to give to your fans?
Thanks for listening to my music and taking your time to support me in any way. It really means a lot to me and I hope I’ll “See Your Face” very soon.
