Hopeful & fun, WE ARE LEO is the latest in heartfelt, creative, cutting-edge music for the young, and young-at-heart Christian. With a lyrical depth and refreshing originality, WE ARE LEO sings about God’s love and finding hope in the everyday.
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, then David Duffield, and his brother 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 & contagious, upbeat hooks.
After two intense years of day jobs, midnight writing sessions, and weekend shows, 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.
