About We Are Leo
Hopeful & fun, WE ARE LEO is the latest in heartfelt, creative, cutting-edge Christian music. With a lyrical depth and refreshing originality, WE ARE LEO sings about God’s love and finding hope in the everyday. Their unique way of expressing their faith inspires teens and young adults around the world, helping them find emotional healing, overcome depression, and come to a stronger faith in Christ. WE ARE LEO started seven years ago in Kenosha, WI when Starbucks barista & part-time missionary, David Duffield, and his brother, graphic designer & youth leader, Jonny Duffield, built a make-shift recording studio 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. WE ARE LEO states: “We believe that through these songs, young people will find hope, life and joy. We believe chains will be broken. We’re fighting back against depression, doubt, apathy & addiction with the truth and love of Christ. We know that we live in a broken world but we know we don’t have to let the failures and lies keep us down. This is music for those who want to live life to the fullest. It’s for the dreamers, the believers; it’s for the broken and the lonely who want to believe that broken hearts can find healing, and it’s music for everyone who refuses to give up despite overwhelming odds.”
