Wanting It All video is now live!

Stephen Leonard’s Wanting It All video is now live! Check it out here:

“I think it’s a real gift when a writer conveys a familiar human emotion in a way that makes me hear it like it’s the first time.  Stephen gave this experience to me with Wanting It All, weaving together some lines that simply made me melt.  His voice is strong, solid, and sensual.  For anyone who has ever questioned love, you will have this song on repeat.” – Tony Award-Winning Actor & International Recording Artis, Levi Kreis

"Wanting It All"

“Wanting It All” will be the lead single from Stephen Leonard’s forthcoming second album, “His Fire.”

A native of the Detroit, Michigan area, Stephen’s 2010 debut album “With A Pen” earned him a rightful place in Chicago’s expanding independent music scene. The singer recently finished his second effort, with early reviews citing the album’s rich melodies. “Wanting It All” was personally chosen by Stephen following several live performances, with the singer adding, “It was kind of a difficult decision, since I have my personal favorites on ‘His Fire,’ but ultimately the reaction I received after live performances of the song led me to choose it as the lead single. I’m really anxious to share the mastered version with everyone, and to release a video.”
