Shortly after signing with Primary Wave,  Patrick discovered the label had purchased Leon Russell’s catalog. Leonard has been a Leon fan since day one and immediately wanted to do a project with his songs and carefully chosen artists.

The first song has been recorded. Logically,  Patrick started with the first song on Leon’s  debut recording, “A Song For You” done brilliantly by Elton John.

The second track recorded was “Masquerade” sung by the incomparable Brandi Carlile.

Leonard has a list of 13 songs, all from very early in Leon’s solo career as well as a wishlist of artists that he believes  will do Leon’s legacy justice. There is currently no schedule. So like fine wine when it’s ready, we drink.
