LEELAND GARNERS THIRD CAREER GRAMMY NOMINATION
09 December 2009

Houston-based, progressive rock band Leeland celebrates its third career GRAMMY nomination, as announced this week, with its latest album Love Is On The Move (8/25) nominated for the year’s Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album. The band’s first two albums, Sound of Melodies (8/15/2006) and its sophomore Opposite Way (2/26/2008), were previously recognized in this category, continuing a streak of GRAMMY honors for each of the outfit’s three projects to date. Leeland continues to influence a generation of new worshippers with its latest GRAMMY-nominated project. The title track marks a clear mission statement for Leeland, which poetically unfolded during the writing process. A response to both physical and spiritual poverty, the lyrics of “Love Is On The Move” poignantly discuss a service-filled transformation. Love Is On The Move is produced by award-winning, veteran producer Ed Cash, and by co-producer Steve Wilson who produced and co-wrote with the band on its breakthrough debut album. The album’s first radio single, “Follow You,” performed with Brandon Heath, holds at No. 9 on Billboard’s AC Indicator chart this week. Leeland recently wrapped its 43-city, co-headlined “Follow You Tour” with Heath and special guest Francesca Battistelli, pulling together one of the most successful Christian music events of the 2009 fall touring season, playing to 50,000 fans in and inspiring 1,051 children sponsorships through a partnership with Food for the Hungry. Nominations for the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards were announced Dec. 2, as part of “The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown To Music’s Biggest Night.” The one-hour special was broadcast live on CBS from Club Nokia at L.A. Live in Los Angeles. The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on “GRAMMY Sunday,” Jan. 31, 2010, at Staples Center in Los Angeles and once again will be broadcast live in high definition TV and 5.1 surround sound on CBS from 8–11:30 p.m. (ET/PT). For a complete list of 52nd GRAMMY Awards nominees, please visit www.grammy.com About Leeland: Hailing from Houston, Texas, GRAMMY-nominated progressive rock act Leeland has been known to deliver songwriting beyond its years and worshipful rock so genuine it disarms the honest cynic. Often quoted as one of Christian music’s most gripping live bands, the 2006 debut Sound of Melodies and 2008’s Opposite Way quickly established Leeland as a leader in the worship community and beyond. Both previous albums were GRAMMY nominated and drew a combined eight Dove nominations. The band’s latest album Love Is On The Move was recently nominated for a GRAMMY in the Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album category. In February 2009, Leeland and Jack Mooring were selected by the White House to participate in the Compassion in Action Roundtable spotlighting the innovative leadership of an emerging generation of social entrepreneurs in America. On top of non-stop touring across the U.S. and Japan, the band also partners with Christian relief organization Food for the Hungry, and has recently taken outreach trips to Africa and Asia, and attended Hillsong Church’s 2008 Conference in Australia. Leeland is: Leeland Mooring (lead vocals, guitar); Jack Mooring (keyboard, background vocals); Jake Holtz (bass); and Mike Smith (drums).
