[ Behind The Concept ]
Leo Motta returns back with a new project, released by Stereofox. The main track Gratitude x Epifania is about thankfulness, appreciation for music, work, friendships, and life. The track sounds like the end of a cycle, bringing hope and clarity.
Here, Leo slightly changes his musical concept and entirely focuses on using a guitar, which was Leo’s first love when he started playing, and brings a nostalgic flavor to the sound.
