"I wrote this song in a season of life when I felt incapable of genuinely connecting with other people, even some of the people closest to me. It can be a lot easier sometimes to just make people laugh and handle your life on your own. But it sucks. We're designed to lift one another up and help each other grow. I wrote this song about that and it's called "Painted Things"."...Lonnie Leo

Lonnie Leo fell in love with great songs at a very young age. Via 90's radio country artists like Shania Twain, Martina McBride and John Michael Montgomery, LL was immersed into a world that would eventually prove to have had honed his instinct and equipped his heart for a lifetime of writing. He played guitar leisurely in high school, even though he was forming his own taste in music finding artists like Wilco, Bob Dylan, Parkway Drive (one of these things is not like the other...lol), but didn't really dive into learning music until his sophomore year of college in Chicago. Surrounded by proficient gospel musicians and the Chicago scene as a whole, those first years were so formative and after a year of living the barista/musician life out of college, Lonnie was able to make music a full-time career. He recorded his debut album "Painted Things" in 2016-2017 and is releasing singles off it now. LL moved to Nashville from Chicago in June of 2017 to pursue songwriting and is booking solo acoustic and full band shows in both cities while writing his next album.
