Recently music has been consumed at a rate faster than ever since the outbreak of Covid-19. With this, many music producers have had extra time to focus on making beats. Rio Leyva is one of these producers who has recently become famous for his work with Kid Laroi as well as other new school artists. Below we’ll learn about Rio Leyva as well as his journey to reach the top.
Rio Leyva is an eighteen year old from Portland Oregon, who is very invested in the music industry. After growing up with the constant support from his parents to always do what he believes in, Rio fell in love with producing music. When he was younger he took piano lessons which made him understand that he could create his own music.
Although producing is something difficult to be known for, Rio has worked hard to make it onto Kid Laroi’s past albums. For future plans he is currently working on LilSpirit’s next production and is excited for that to finally be released. Rio describes the producing industry and not always easy, as he says that sometimes it is hard to stay motivated. Back when he first started producing he thought about quitting many times as things were not going the way he envisioned. When speaking on perseverance, Rio said he remains empowered by the constant thought of putting in work.
Rio enjoys producing music and he looks up to famous producer Wheezy, who has been in the music industry for a while now. Wheezy himself has many beats which are used by famous artists within the rap industry.
Something Rio struggles with is making beats that he thinks artists will enjoy and have an easy time writing to. Some of the time when Rio is making music he makes things that he himself likes, and then doesn’t realize until the end that it may not be suitable for artists. This is something that Rio takes his time to analyze because he wants to make beats that will allow for artists to be creative and unique with his sounds.
Having supportive parents is something that Rio is very appreciative for as he knows a lot of people who constantly doubt him. When speaking on his parents he says that he has to give it all to his parents and that without them he would never be able to produce his dreams. In years to come Rio wants to see himself producing for some of the best artists in the industry.
Rio enjoys inspiring his audience as he wants to represent the same motto that his parents allowed him to follow. That is, follow your dreams and have no regrets. Although Rio is only eighteen he is very wise and understands the key concepts to life. Success does not come easy, but when work is continuously put in good things come out of it.
