Tennessee born and Southern bred, Country Music recording artist, JD Leonard presents a diverse perspective on uniquely American music. From artists to audiences alike, Leonard’s music is in high demand. JD began cutting his teeth as a kid in church, appearing on TV and radio commercials by the age of 4, and began playing shows at 14. He spent the next decade honing the craft of writing, recording and performing live.

As a multi-talented artist, JD Leonard’s performances capture the listener with relatable emotion and raw truth. His penetrating guitar playing weaves between lyrics that punctuate the human experience. His songs are a conscious head-nod to the varied elements of popular music. Highly sought after, JD has written with some of music’s biggest names. His current projects include collaborations with Grammy nominated Richie Cannata (Billy Joel), Grammy nominated Jim Sells (True Vibe), Grammy nominated Paul Soroski (producer/engineer), multi-platinum writer, Francis Galluccio (Celine Dion), several up-and-coming artists and legendary Nashville producer, David Huff.

Call On Me – JD Leonard

Hey guys! After what feels like forever…what started out as making a little music video for the next single has turned into something I’m so proud to show you! All the hard work of so many people helping me create this video has come to fruition and we’ve finally finished! A lot of today’s music has lost emotion, meaning, depth, reason, heart and purpose. Things aren’t been said or talked about or sung about because it’s too hard or it’s not “fun” or it’s easier to pretend that problems don’t exist than to acknowledge them and work to help overcome them. Well, I felt like I needed to say something that empowers people and strengthens the belief in ourselves and in the notion that we’re not alone. You’re not alone. I wanted a music video with a narrative that was just as powerful and moving as the song, the music, the lyrics, the story and the subject matter itself. This is something that hits me right at home. After cheating addiction and death myself, It was important to me to show the struggles and loss that inevitably come with addiction, where those paths lead, but, more importantly, I wanted to have a visual narrative that shows people that it IS possible to overcome addiction. So we dug deep, got to work and set out to try to create a visual representation of emotion, heart, love and truth. I hope Ferretti Films and I have done just that. Go see for yourself! Believe!
