Using audio and video mediums set against a backdrop of alternative pop, The Wait Album tells Leonard’s story of wrestling through heartache, depression, confusion and redemption with his family and with God. At its heart, The Wait is a pilgrim’s tale, filled with all the joy, fear and hope expected on this side of Heaven. And though mined from Leonard’s own journey, the themes are universal.
I am a prodigal, and I am a runaway…but I am a child of God – “Wanderer”
Leonard borrows from lyrics within two songs and from the ethos of the whole 13-track album for the title as the concept of “waiting” is examined from the perspective of the pilgrim and the God who keeps calling him home.
I am reminded from where You have brought me / And where You have placed me for today /
I won’t forget that Your hand will hold me / Your love sustains me through the wait – “I Will Wait”
Leonard produced The Wait with Brad King and Seth Talley for The Creak Music, a production studio and independent label based in Franklin, Tennessee and co-owned by the trio. The Wait is available now for pre-sale with the immediate download of tracks “Wanderer,” “By My Side,” “Signs Of Life” and new radio single, “Threads.”
