I’ve always been moved by people who sing with conviction.” – David Leonard
Today we welcome back David Leonard from All Sons & Daughters. I’ve always loved what David Leonard & Leslie Jordan write and their new album Poets & Saints is no exception.
In this chat we talk all about the album as well as recording vocals, golf, music development, and stories of God’s faithfulness.

The sponsor for today’s show is a simple, beautiful new app called Chordmatic. One of the skills any great worship musician needs is transposition. One week a song may be in B. Another week, it may be in D. Sometimes keys change on the fly. Chordmatic is one of the quickest ways I’ve seen to transpose chords right from your smartphone.
In the middle of a rehearsal, you can plug the chords in to the app and email it to everyone else on the team. I also love that you add your capo position to determine the proper key as well.
Check it out at getchordmatic.com. It’s a $1.99 well spent.
