Back at it

Ok... sorry it's been so long since we've posted something! We've been really busy. And we're proud to say that we don't 'outsource' this blog to anybody outside of the band. This is 100% genuine Leeland content... straight from us. :-)

We're in Nashville writing more songs! They just keep coming and we're gonna record as many as we can. Below are some iPhone pix of what a typical writing session with Leeland is like. He plays musical chairs with every instrument in the building...









PS... For those who didn't hear... Mike got in a 4-wheeler accident a week ago. It was pretty serious, but it could have been much much worse. He's out and about now, and feeling much better. God really protected him and we're very thankful for that. Thanks for the prayers! -jack

so I was just curious... are there going to be more than 11 songs on this album, or the same amount? Just thought it was quite funny how there were 11 on both of the previous albums, and wondered if that was your guys' magical number!!

Praying mike is all better really soon so he can get back to bangin on the drums!!!!

You are so encouraging and you have impacted my life more than you could ever imagine. And because of you I am now sponsoring a little boy through food for the hungry! Thanks again :)

I'm totally kidding of course!

Yeah, it's really cool you don't 'outsource' your blog :) Yey! New songs! So exciting! You know.. it actually didn't take that long before you wrote a new blog. It's really awesome you share so much with your fans! :) I'll be praying for Mike.

God bless you!

GCBGirl... we're not sure how many tracks are going to be on this new record. 11 might be our lucky number though. Who knows. :-)

Melanie said...

This has nothing to do with the post...
I was a volunteer for ATF over the weekend & I really enjoyed the music. Thank you for that. :)

Will Mike be playing in MO on Friday night? We are traveling 6 hours to worship with you guys and it sure won't be the same without The Bishop! We continue to pray he will be completely healed with no damage to the magic hands!
I know this Friday night's venue may be smaller than some of the ATF or other events you play. I'm sure the atmosphere at those huge arenas is phenomenal; but in this more intimate setting, it is really cool that you (as a band) or not just part of the worship experience, but the reason for it! Keeping the Spirit!
