Nashville, TN (March 15, 2019)
Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and producer David Leonard releases his highly anticipated solo album The Wait today via Integrity Music. Born out of personal experiences and set against a backdrop of alternative pop, The Wait tells Leonard’s story of wrestling through heartache, depression, confusion, and redemption with his family and God.

“This record is me being fully 100 percent me and being fully 100 percent authentic with the God I worship and love. I hope everybody can insert themselves in the songs and I pray they can find hope in The Wait.” —David Leonard

Sonically, The Wait feels like a beautiful combination of all three of David’s previous bands—Jackson Waters, NEEDTOBREATHE, and All Sons & Daughters. Lyrically, the album showcases his vulnerability through transparent and universal themes that were influenced by personal experiences, including the Leonards’ struggle with infertility.

Tying into the album’s release, music videos for each track were combined to make a short film, The Wait Movie, that tells one overarching narrative. The innovative film was directed by Elliott Eicheldinger and is the visual companion to the album’s journey through confusion and heartache to clarity and hope.
