Rylan began playing the drums at the age of two and spent hours at his kit teaching himself his favorite songs as a child. Later, as a teenager, he picked up the guitar and began to sing, which eventually culminated in creating a punk-blues band, Wallace, with a group of friends. Wallace gained quick popularity, playing the South Florida underground circuit heavily for a year, and winning a Song of The Year award from The New Times Magazine.
But as Wallace gained in local awareness and was gigging several days a week, Rylan’s personal musical interests were evolving rapidly as he explored writing, recording and producing a new alt/pop sound. That exploration eventually led him to disband Wallace, and Brother Sundance was born.
Brother Sundance was a play on a family nickname—his parents and sister often called him derivations of the title Brother, to denote his role in the family. Brother Sundance was a frequent moniker and one that Rylan felt represented his new path forward. A path that would blur the lines of alternative, pop, DIY with his heavy interest in art, design and business in a new alchemy of a modern performing artist.
As a prolific artist, the Brother Sundance visual story—original artwork, photography, album art and merchandise design is all created or directed by Rylan himself. He sees these as integral to the music experience. Likewise, as a solo recording artist, he writes and produces all of the music, including playing every instrument.
For live performances he is grateful to be joined by an incredible group of talented musicians and friends to bring his music to life on stage. His love of performing is evident in his high energy set. “A performance is a way to bring together past and present. The past is the album, the recorded instance of each song which remain unchanged. The present is the show, the moment at hand, the audience, the venue. Living in that moment is important to me, and I love it.” he says of his show.
The Brother Sundance debut EP, Honey, is out now. The single Blind, has already been streamed over 5 million times, and he was selected as Apple Music’s New Artist of the Week. He’s also been featured on the Best of the Week Playlist several times and was named as a top 25 viral band in Canada by Spotify.
In 2016, Di Leo and his new alternative sound, inspired by indie, pop, and folk, made its debut at the For The Love Music Festival, followed by an appearance at the Undertow Jam Music Festival, garnered attention from notable outlets such as BalconyTV and Music Ate the Nation. With influences ranging from Coldplay to Vance Joy, Arcade Fire and more, Alex Di Leo and his band bring their fans uplifting songs that get fans singing along to enchanting, hook-filled melodies.
Alex Di Leo released his debut EP So We Go on November 4th and since its release, the EP has been played in rotation on 110 college radio stations, charted on 9 radio stations’ Top 20, taking the #1 spot on Ithaca, New York’s WICO, and made the countdown for IndiMusic TV’s Top 21 Countdown this past December. In addition to the airplay Di Leo’s music has received, he has been interviewed and featured on outlets including Highlight Magazine, Earmilk, IndiMusic TV and Chicago’s JBTV who featured the music video for Di Leo’s single, “Waking Up.” Additionally, his music has premiered exclusively with outlets such as AXS, Pancakes and Whiskey, Substream Magazine and MySpace.
