Leroy Sanchez’s whirlwind journey from his bedroom in Abechuco, a small village (pop. 3300) in the rural Basque region of Spain, to global YouTube superstardom began as a whimsical lark in 2007. Curious about the video platform and inspired by others posting covers of pop songs, the talented 15 year old grabbed his acoustic guitar, turned on the webcam, and sang his soulful version of Kelly Clarkson’s “Breakaway.” The synergy between Leroy and his growing legion of fans made him an unstoppable, ever-evolving viral sensation that, over the past ten years, has resulted in over 3 million subscribers, 323 million views – including an astounding 42 million views alone for his cover of Adele’s “Hello.”

With the release of his highly anticipated independent EP Elevated, Leroy transcends the bounds of YouTube fame and emerges as a multi-faceted singer-songwriter and hit maker in his own right. Its just-dropped lead single, the infectiously seductive “Man of the Year,” is quickly capturing the hearts of millions of fans excited to hear a fresh side of the multi-talented singer-songwriter’s artistry. People magazine calls it “a soulful, lovesick bop reminiscent of Justin Timberlake and Ed Sheeran.” Pop culture tastemaker Perez Hilton affectionately states, “This is such a good slow jam! And we’re a sucker for a guy who sings in his falsetto!”

Testament to the caliber of industry talent that Leroy is vibing with in the studio these days, he wrote the track with Jeff “Gitty” Gitelman (Trey Songz, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige) and Kam Parker (Danity, Keyshia Cole). It was produced by Australian production duo Finatik N Zac (John Legend, Machine Gun Kelly, Chris Brown).
