Also, he has developed an international career, working with directors like Pedro Almodovar, Roland Joffé, Emilio Estevez and in productions like "Casino Royale" or opposite actors like Al Pacino, Martin Sheen, Anne Hathaway or Willem Dafoe.
In 2016, he releases his first solo album "Reflections", an atmospheric french electro pop opus.
In 2020, Carlos Leal will be seen in TV series like "The L Word, generation Q" or in the very awaited film of Oscar nominated director Dee Rees. But Leal can't stop doing music, so he's coming back with a first double single produced by Stee Gfeller "les Brunes et les Blondes" and the very exciting "Highway". Both songs have been used to create a short film directed by Bianca Poletti.
