Leon Timbo Answers The Call To Worship

Multi-genre artist Leon Timbo easily describes himself as a guy with a guitar who loves God and music. That passion for music, coupled with a universal message of love, affords him the opportunity to sing about love in both its horizontal and vertical form. Following his May 2018 R&B release titled Invitation to Love, Volume 1, Timbo turns focus to the love of the Creator as he shares his new project Invitation to Worship, Volume 1 which pairs him in a collaborative effort with a group of light bearers aptly called Northern Lights United. The new effort is released on the eOne Music imprint.

The multiracial collective’s members hail from Cleveland, Chicago, New York and Sweden. “Think Sounds of Blackness or Kirk Franklin’s The Family and God’s Property if you will. We are different individuals from different walks of life coming together to share our faith-filled, God-focused perspectives,” shares Timbo.

Timbo and company pull on various music styles to present their worship offering. GOSPELflava.com Senior Editor Gregory Gay states, “from beginning to end, Northern Lights United steps to the plate while delivering a full course meal. Of special note is the cover of the anthemically poignant ‘Abba’.”

As the centrifugal force behind Northern Lights, Timbo embraces both the spiritual and soulful music worlds. The Jacksonville, Florida native grew up as the son of two pastors. “What moved me were the messages and the music in the church services,” Timbo recollects.  “One day when I was 16, I made an ambiguous prayer to God about me and music. Suddenly everything about the way that I heard music changed. Words became very impactful.”

Now an emerging force on the R&B front, Timbo hasn’t forgotten his roots. “I’m still a preacher’s kid,” he notes, “and I want to serve where that’s expanded to. We live in an age where you don’t have to hide your faith. You can be super bold on both fronts.”

Invitation To Worship is available now on all digital outlets.
