Leo lands a knockout!


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 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.
