Stephen Leonard

Stephen Leonard is a Chicago singer-songwriter, recording artist, producer and LGBTQ advocate. His original music and community efforts have garnered him local and national recognition for projects appearing on television, film and iTunes.

In his latest album, His Fire, released in October 2012, Leonard showcases a deep evolution in his songwriting from his debut album, With a Pen.

"His Fire is a personal collection of confrontations," says Leonard. "When I started writing this record, I was drawn to the physical and emotional effects and fears of fire and its parallel relationship to man. Both can be warm and giving. Both can be strong and attractive. And both can be rather impulsive and seen as threatening. Every song on this record is me confronting the fire and digging beneath the flames."

Leonard’s passion for powerful music and individuality has helped him pioneer a growing and supportive community of singers and songwriters in Chicago, producing and hosting concerts and events for local causes. It has also brought him to the forefront of the LGBTQ music scene, giving him the opportunity to connect openly gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, queer and supportive artists with audiences alike through his role as Producer on “Out Rock” as seen on GayChicagoTV.

A Metro-Detroit native, Leonard began discovering and writing music in his early teens, which he describes as having “enriched and saved his life.”
