Arkansas native and Tennessee resident David Leonard has been playing, singing, writing and recording music since college when he and friends formed the band Jackson Waters. He later performed with NEEDTOBREATHE before a season of recording as one-half of the critically-acclaimed, GRAMMY Award-nominated duo All Sons & Daughters.
David is a Dove Award-winning producer (Confio/Jaci Velasquez) and creative partner in The Creak Music (Ben & Noelle Kilgore, NEEDTOBREATHE, Brandon Heath, All Sons & Daughters) located in downtown Franklin. He is also a Dove and Covenant Award-nominated songwriter whose credits include “Great Are You Lord,” “Christ Be All Around,” “All The Poor and Powerless” and “God Who Moves The Mountains.”
David released his first solo project, The Wait, in March (2019). Using audio and video mediums set against a backdrop of alternative pop, The Wait tells David’s story of wrestling through heartache, depression, confusion and redemption with his family and with God.
