Biography

Leeland is a Christian pop and rock band hailing from Baytown, TX. The lead singer, Leeland Mooring, was only 17 during the recording of their debut album. Even though their songs have strong Christian lyrics, their melodically-driven sound also holds appeal for those who don’t share their faith.

Beginnings

At the age of 11, Leeland Mooring wrote his first song, “Shine”. After having a successful performance of it at a church in Illinois while the Moorings were touring the United States as evangelists, he felt a spiritual calling towards music. His mother, Cyndy Mooring, entered him in a contest in Nashville, Tennessee at the age of 14, and was a finalist in the songwriting and artist divisions. Although he did not win, one of the contest judges, Kent Coley, took interest in the young teen. He is now their manager. Later at the age of 15 he attracted the attention of Eddie DeGarmo, President of EMI CMG Publishing, and signed a songwriting contract with EMI CMG Publishing.
