Leon Budrow is an American Hip-Hop/ Pop Artist residing in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Leon’s versatile sound allows him to flow between the hip hop and pop genres, and has been a hit amongst many Pop 2000 Style music fans.
More than just a singer and rapper, Leon Budrow has made a name for himself in the entertainment industry as a professional actor, model, dancer and former fitness competitor. A true performer – Budrow also hosts and manages the Philadelphia Hunk-O-Mania Male Revue as Philadelphia’s Magic Mike.
From a young age, Budrow had a desire for music. “I knew at a very early age that I wanted to make music,” he shared. Budrow continued, “I would watch some of my favorite artists performing on tv and think to myself how awesome it would be to do that one day.” The problem he had to overcome, though, was figuring out how to start.
Upon his high school graduation in 2009, Budrow opted to forgo formal secondary education and began to pursue a career in his first passion. While working his way to franchise district manager at GNC, Budrow also began modeling and competing in professional fitness events throughout Philadelphia and its surrounding suburbs. The exposure he received from these jobs earned him a position with Philadelphia’s Male revue company, Hunk-O-Mania, and a few small roles in recent movies and television shows.
Budrow began taking vocal and guitar lessons out of high school, and he even took a stab at recording a few original songs that, he says, turned out to be failures. “Much later on, in 2017, I met someone at work who referred me to a studio a little way out from me. I very impulsively decided to book a session, and that session marked the beginning of all of my recorded projects,” Leon shared. The impulse decision to begin recording again paid off for Budrow, as he began booking gigs opening up for major artists when they would come through Philadelphia, including Aaron Carter and Ghostface Killer.
Leon Budrow has toured the country as Direct Support for pop star Aaron Carter as well as many other major artists – including Ryan Cabrera, O-Town, Drake Bell, Chris Webby and Ginuwine. Showcasing a dynamic performance history, Budrow thrives in the spotlight. With 33 music shows under his belt, Budrow has performed live throughout the country in 25 venues, 22 cities and 14 states, including The World Famous Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood, CA.
Now, Budrow is riding the success of his high caliber performances and the release of a few recent singles. His music is a blend of pop and hip-hop that often incorporates various other genres from song to song. Due out at the start of 2021, Budrow’s newest full-length project, Iridium, will further showcase his musical abilities. The project will include dance tracks, R&B inspired tracks, and will even feature the Philadelphia artist’s own attempt at the new pop-country trend currently taking over the music industry.
