    With a lyrical depth and refreshing originality, We Are Leo sings about life, love, and hope. Their unique expression of faith inspires people around the world to enjoy life, find healing, overcome depression and come to a stronger faith in Jesus.

    When ask about the band’s name (“Leo” means lion), lead singer, David Duffield, explains, "Being Leo or lionhearted, means daily choosing faith instead of doubt; it’s about finding bravery to live the lives we were meant to live."

    Graduating from the School of Worship in Kenosha, WI (just north of Chicago), then-Starbucks barista and part-time missionary, David Duffield, and his brother, graphic designer and youth leader, Jonny Duffield, built a make-shift recording studio in their garage and started cranking out rough, but passionate demos. They soon teamed up with worship leader/guitarist, Doug Weier, and eventually, guitarist John Panzer, to meld their music, style, and message into a synth-driven, pop-rock band with up-front guitars and contagious, upbeat hooks.

    After two intense years of day jobs, midnight writing sessions, and weekend shows, they decided to make music full-time. Shortly afterwards, they were discovered by indie label Skies Fall Records, run by former guitarist of Skillet, Ben Kasica, whose invaluable insight helped them refine their sound and release their first record, Hello. This debut album propelled them to several notable accomplishments, including Christian Festival Association’s New Artist Of The Year (2012) and a Billboard #1 Christian Rock single, "Supernova Sunrise." For the following three years, the band was on the road sharing their new music, making connections, and growing a loyal fan-base. After Skies Fall Records morphed into a video production company in 2014, they signed with Dream Records (Capitol Records Christian music division) and released their sophomore record, Fightback Soundtrack, which was selected as one of the "Top 5 Christian Albums of 2014” by The Christian Music Review.

    We Are Leo states, “We believe that through these songs, young people will find hope, life, and joy. We believe chains will be broken. We’re fighting back against depression, doubt, apathy, and addiction with the truth and love of Christ. We know that we live in a broken world but we know we don’t have to let the failures and lies keep us down. This is music for those who want to live life to the fullest. It’s for the dreamers, the believers; it’s for the broken and the lonely who want to believe that broken hearts can find healing, and it’s music for everyone who refuses to give up despite overwhelming odds.”

    Buy Replica Designer Handbags Cheap Sale Online. The richness of this dark denim with the signature CC monogram stitched over cannot be replicated. Reminder: Just because a knockoff handbags comes with an authenticity card doesn't actually make it authentic—counterfeiters fake those, too In fact, you should always be wary of authenticity cards when buying outside of a brand's official store: Louis Vuitton and Hermès bags don't have them, Well explained, but fakers will lure unassuming customers with them anyway. Hence, instead of throwing away their used louis vuitton replicas, they sell them off either to dealers, who then polish the bags a little and sell them later to new buyers; or they sell them to new buyers directly on their own, by creating profiles on websites where sale and purchase of various items takes place. Welcome to designerpurses.co At you can buy ysl replica, celine bag replica and more brand name items that you want ,Out of all four seasons, Fall fashion is Your favorite. As for why the market has shifted to bags that retail for only a couple hundred dollars, Women's Wear Daily doesn't draw any conclusions, but I do have one piece of advice: fake chanel bags go on sale regularly around the Internet at reputable retailers, and when you consider the relatively small price difference between buying a marked down fake prada bags and picking up a fake on vacation, we'd suggest you take the real thing every time. Women love our gucci replica and ysl replica , and we shall admit it, we could in no circumstances have enough of them. As she recounts, it once wasn't difficult to go into any given storefront on the street and ask to be shown fake louis vuitton, but legal crackdowns and NYPD raids mean that most of the retail spaces have turned to the kind of souvenir tchotchkes that can be found in all the city's tourist centers.

    Awesome!!! | Posted June 27, 2012
    I would recommend these guys to everyone! I saw them at Alive Fest and was totally blown away!!! My whole family loved them (which is saying something)! If you fused Owl City with Decyfer Down and added a little bit of tobyMac in there, you might get something like We Are Leo! Definitely check them out! You will not be disappointed!!!

    I enjoyed listening to your latest release. It's great to hear new and fresh musical styles in the Chrsitian music sphere. My favorite track was "I'm With You".

    I saw We Are Leo perform live at Fandana Festival in Huntington, IN this past August. Their stage presence was AMAZING. As was their sound. Keep up the good work!
