Ryan Kinder dropped a new song on Friday and we’re absolutely digging it!
The track — titled “Leap of Faith” — has unbreakable and masterful guitar skills. Featuring Kinder’s now-signature intricate guitar licks and introspective lyrics, “Leap of Faith” was written by Kinder along with Fred Wilhelm and Luke Sheets.
Flexing his string expertise, Kinder supplies electric guitar, acoustic guitar and resonator guitar contributions in addition to his gritty vocals. Frequent collaborators Kristen Rogers and April Rucker offer their backing vocals throughout “Leap of Faith.”
Kinder explains, “With ‘Leap of Faith,’ I’ve had the chance to live with it, rework it, go back to the original version, play with 1,000 different solos and test it out with my fans. I dug through the catalog and found what made me fall in love with songwriting. I got to go back to my roots with this song and it rocked.”
In addition to dropping the song, Kinder revealed a stunning visual for “Leap of Faith.” The accompanying video – filmed at The Foundry in Athens, GA – was directed by Justin Key and highlights Kinder’s musicianship. With the sun soaking through the windows, the majority of the video captures the singer-songwriter in his prime before opening to a full band performance in the unique space.
