JD Leonard is an American singer/songwriter and recording artist. His crafty, genre leaping writing style has landed him high profile music associations with members of the New York and Nashville musical elite. His writing seamlessly weaves from television (“Renegade Writer” – artist and co-writer), to movies (“Trying Not To Fall” for the 2017 film, “Rich Boy, Rich Girl”), to established artists (“Love is the Knife” from “Rocks and Honey” (Warner Bros), to new arrivals as well as some of music’s most respected stage musicians. JD has shared the stage with great company like Air Supply, Lo-Cash Cowboys and Dan Ackroyd. The magic of New York has him playing clubs in NYC with band members of Blue Oyster Cult, Rainbow, Meatloaf, Billy Joel, Spyro Gyra, Tower of Power, Daryl Hall, Eddie Money and Ted Nugent. His current projects include collaborations with Grammy nominated Richie Cannata (Billy Joel), Grammy nominated Jim Sells (True Vibe), Mike Sorrentino (9 Days) and he is a member of the premier Eagles tribute band, “The Fast Lane,” just to name a few. As an artist, JD’s no holds barred approach to entertainment has been heralded as a breathless and timeless slice of musicianship from a savvy guitarist/singer/songwriter. JD Leonard is currently working on several exciting projects including his own, brand new EP with the legendary Nashville producer, David Huff set to be released in spring 2017.

2017 Update

“Hey guys! It’s been a while. In-between stages and studios, I’ve finally been able to get back to what I love the most. The writing. The stories. The music. I’m so very excited to announce the making of my BRAND NEW album! …but I don’t want to just tell you about it. I want you to be a part of it! Take this journey with me and GET INVOLVED!”

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!
