The One (feat. Phil Keaggy) - Single - 2017

1/23/2017 - Today would have been my Dad’s 81st Birthday. He passed away some years ago. It took me a while to put things together in my head enough to write this song. This song has been a work in progress for far too long, but I can not think of a better day to release it than on his birthday.


I was unbelievably blessed to have Phil Keaggy (philkeaggy.com) agree to play guitar on this track. Along with my usual partner in musical crime Rob Kosinski (robkmusic.com) who contributed drums, bass, and some keys. We recorded and re-recorded this song a number of times trying to get it right. It is finally complete and ready to go out into the world!

I hope it’s a fitting tribute to my Dad, George Leedham.

The past few years have been tough. More than a few of my musical heroes passed away, many of them far too soon. I decided I wanted to try and write a tribute to these artists that helped influence me. They are in large part why started down this musical road in the first place.

The first thing I did was make a list of my musical heroes who have died since John Lennon was murdered. I then listed a song, or a line from a song that meant something to me by each of those artists. I then began stringing those song titles together as a single lyric as best I could. The only rule I gave myself was the word “Imagine” (a song by John Lennon) would be the first word of the song. I was not able to include every artist that made my original list, and unfortunately more artists had passed away after I had completed the lyric. I wanted to find some way to include two of those artists, Prince and Tom Petty. So if you listen carefully, you will hear tributes to these two giants in some of the production elements. Another huge influence on me was George Martin, the genius Producer of The Beatles. The way some parts were recorded and many of the production elements are my tribute to Sir George.

The cover art is also a tip of the hat of sorts. The colors and font used are reminesent of Elvis Presley's first album, and also "London Calling" by The Clash, which was also a bit of a tribute to Elvis. The jukebox cards have most of the songs and artists that are included in the lyrics. I did some reseach to make sure the "B-sides" were correct for most of the songs that were released as singles. Some artistic license was taken in some cases. You can click on the image above to see a larger, more detailed version of the cover art. Many thanks to Rob Kosinski for his help with the design and layout of the cover art as well as the mixing and mastering of "Heroes and Ghosts"
