Life & Work with Kai Leo

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kai Leo.

Kai, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I grew up in a very hostile environment, dealing with mental breakdowns and anxiety attacks as early as five years old. As I grew up, I had no voice, people didn’t take me seriously and I began to feel alone. Continued depression symptoms over the course of ten years made me realize that I needed to make a change. In that journey of change, I discovered music a major stress relic or and a coping tool. This endeavor allowed me access to amazing accomplishments such as gaining over 250k streams across platforms, opening up for DJ Quik and performing in Brazil! I’m currently still creating and doing what I can to try to further boost my career and hopefully have my first blowup song!

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It’s has been really difficult for me, I struggled with SI, depression, & lifelong trauma. I’ve never gotten a clear answer on what I’m dealing with, I’ve heard BPD, PTSD, ADHD, anxiety. I’ve never been able to pay for a consistent psychiatrist so that we can finally stamp what I need mentally, but I do what I can through free resources.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a music artist! My biggest and most memorable accomplishment was doing a show in Brazil! Performing in a nightclub full of 200+ people almost felt fake. Seeing that many people enjoying the music I performed was a feeling I couldn’t describe.

What quality or characteristic do you feel is most important to your success?
I’m true to myself, what you see is what you get. I’m a natural leader, but I’m also willing to learn.
