With unbreakable concentration and masterful guitar skills, Warner Bros./Warner Music Nashville artist RYAN KINDER delivers his latest offering, “Leap of Faith” with a mesmerizing visual and an audio accompaniment available at all digital retailers.
Written by Kinder along with Fred Wilhelm and Luke Sheets, “Leap of Faith” features his now-signature intricate guitar licks and introspective lyrics. Flexing his string expertise, Kinder supplies electric guitar, acoustic guitar and resonator guitar contributions in addition to his gritty vocals. Frequent collaborators Kristen Rogers and April Rucker offer their backing vocals throughout “Leap of Faith.”
Earning a coveted spot on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, the Birmingham, AL native’s latest track has been a staple in his live show and was only recently recorded in the studio. Kinder explains, “With ‘Leap of Faith,’ I’ve had the chance to live with it, rework it, go back to the original version, play with 1,000 different solos and test it out with my fans. I dug through the catalog and found what made me fall in love with songwriting. I got to go back to my roots with this song and it rocked.”
His latest offering drives home Billboard’s assertion that he is “a singer-songwriter with an intense, urgent vocal style.” The accompanying video – filmed at The Foundry in Athens, GA – was directed by Justin Key and highlights Kinder’s musicianship. With the sun soaking through the windows, the majority of the video captures the singer-songwriter in his prime before opening to a full band performance in the unique space. The style echoes his previous hits “Close,” which has amassed over 30 million streams on Spotify alone, and the heartwarming “Still Believe in Crazy Love.”
As People notes, “Ryan Kinder is making a name for himself in Nashville” and the singer-songwriter will propel that momentum as he performs overseas later this month at C2C Festival in London and Glasgow before heading to Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham.
