Leo lands a knock­out!

Fingal Independent - - NEWS - By HU­BERT MUR­PHY

A FOR­MER box­ing cham­pion from Rush has be­come a hit in the mu­sic world with a ‘knock­out’ pro­duc­tion of a song that’s fly­ing high in the charts.

‘Fly Again’ has been re­leased by Leo Cap­per, aka Leo Dy­namic 1, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Christina Marie Piper who wrote the lyrics and recorded the vo­cal. Christina Marie was a fi­nal­ist in the Voice UK 2014.

This is the lat­est in a num­ber of re­leases from Leo, who is both a song­writer and pro­ducer, this year.

‘Fly Again’ has proved to be very pop­u­lar on ra­dio in the UK, Eu­rope and the USA and it now get­ting

‘Fly­ing High’ has proved to be very pop­u­lar on ra­dio in the UK

airtime in Ire­land.

His pre­vi­ous songs, ‘Time is on our side’ had 230,000 hits on Youtube while ‘Baby Baby’ hit the 175,000 mark.

This fol­lows on from two top 10 hits with Sony Mu­sic Ger­many, ‘Sing For­ever’ and ‘Like I do’ with DJ Shog.

He has been awarded two song­writ­ing awards so far and he’s worked in a song­writ­ing group hosted by Jack Ponti, for­mer band mate of Jon Bon Jovi.

His writ­ing skill has led to five place­ments on MTV USA and a fi­nal­ist song in Ire­land’s Ju­nior Euro­vi­sion in 2015.

‘Fly Again is a dance song with a good fes­ti­val vibe that any­one from teenagers to oldies can re­late to, all about be­ing hurt by love and start­ing again,’ Leo stated.

He says the song really gets you ‘hooked early’, some­thing he learned from his box­ing ca­reer!

Not want­ing his abil­ity to go to waste, his fa­ther made sure his hands stayed flex­i­ble in the box­ing ring, by send­ing him to pi­ano lessons - later help­ing with his love of mu­sic. He is a two time Ir­ish cham­pion and also fought in Amer­ica and Eu­rope.
