Rival Summers started in 2008 as the solo musical endeavor of nineteen year old singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Leo Bautista from Sterling Heights, Michigan. Since then, Rival Summers has released four albums independently, with the most recent being the second full length studio record entitled “Learning To Live” in May 2012, and has toured throughout much of the midwest, east coast, and southern regions of the United States over the past four years with plans of more extensive touring in the near future.
What began as a humble acoustic project has become a mission to bring a sense of community and sincerity back to music through hard work and positivity. With a bright future and an uncompromisable drive, there’s no telling where this will go. This is only the beginning.
