ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Patrick Leonard is about life, misunderstanding, loneliness, the space for reflection, never losing sight of the dream, the feeling of inspiration you get from a good movie, that once attainable, now intangible emotion that endlessly taunts, and most of all the effects of undeniable beauty. The great loves, bitter disappointments and the optimistic transcendence of life are captured and magnified in the down-tempo music and art of Patrick Leonard and his wonderful band.

As the Singer and Songwriter of the band Your Precious You, Patrick Leonard and most of his current band mates have performed with the following acts: Yo La Tengo, His Name is Alive, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Caustic Resin, Vue, Seven Year Bitch, Andalusia, Dora Flood, Mover, The Audience, Skip Holiday, The Rosemarys, Junior Panther, Retromotive, Velvet Alex, Kevin Seconds, Monkey, Xui Xui, A Man Called Sun, Blueland

It is rare to see an artist blend his personal emotions and experiences with the style and grace that Patrick Leonard brings with his music. Introverted and subtle at times, outgoing and unmistakable at others, his songs cover a broad spectrum of emotion with a lot of depth. From the expressiveness of \"Mars Theme\" and the give-and-take of \"No One Else\", it is clear that Patrick Leonard is an incredibly versatile and talented musician worth watching for.

For his solo debut, Patrick Leonard has reunited with veteran musicians Kevin Cole, David \"Ace\" McNeill, and Daniel Dietrick, along with bringing new guitarist Shaun Allen into the fold. Together with Kevin, Ace, and Daniel, Patrick Leonard formed the 1990\'s shoegaze group Your Precious You, selling out all of their self produced records, touring domestically and performing internationally at events such as NXNW and sharing the stage with bands such as Yo La Tengo and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.

Drawing from a unique, creative vision and a diverse group of influences including Nick Drake and George Harrison, Patrick Leonard teamed with long-time friend and producer Michael Padilla at Soundport Recording Studio for his upcoming debut album entitled \"Begin The Beginning\". Over 3 years in the making, this full-length album is nearly complete and it\'s upcoming 2008 release promises to leave a lasting impression on all music fans introduced to this amazing artist.

Current Live Instrumentation:
Patrick Leonard - Vox / Guitar
Kevin Cole - Bass
David \"Ace\" McNeill - Drums
Daniel Dietrick - Keyboard / Guitar
