"When I set out to make The Wait, I didn’t want to have any rules. I wanted to be able to make a record that I felt was creative and push the boundaries. The tough part about that is songs sometimes get lost in production," Leonard says.
With a strong desire to see people connect with the heart of these songs, Silence The Noise came about. This live record allows songs like “Share This Burden” to take on a complete transformation getting down to the heart of the lyric.
“There have been so many times in the past couple of months where I’ve done interviews and people have asked me why I have stepped away from the corporate worship thing,” Leonard explains. “To me, this is corporate worship. We’re just creating a new sound for it. So the hope with this project is that we allow people to see the songs for what they are; which are worship songs."
This project was produced by Leonard, Seth Talley and Brad King, who make up The Creak Music, a production team and independent label based in Franklin, Tennessee. This fall, Leonard will be bringing the stories and songs from these projects on the Silence The Noise Tour. Dates and tickets can be found here.
