Jacksonville based powerhouse vocalist and soul artist Leon Timbo has been anticipating this moment for years now. On August 26th, 2016, the singer will release his first full body of work which is called “What Love’s All About”.
The project’s first single “You’re My Darling” is climbing the Urban A/C charts and features a funky, dance-inducing mid-tempo vibe that serves to introduce Leon as an artist with staying power. Timbo added about the song:
“It’s the day that you decide that you want to continue a relationship and see how far it can go. When you find someone to commit to, then define what you’re willing to put on the line. It also front loads the idea of how I want people to hear my album and of our relationship going forward.”
What Love’s All About is sonically diverse but rooted in pure soul music. The album also features the epic drums-driven 8-minute blast of futuristic rock-n-soul “For Your Love,” the modern nod to golden-era Motown of the title track and the Memphis-style R&B of “I Still Love You.” “Reach for Your Destiny” offers a sunny dose of world music inspiration while “What Took You So Long” is a techno pop ballad about a long-prayed-for love. The generous 14-track What Love’s All About shows the impressive depth and range of Timbo’s artistry.
