Bio

It's been seven years since TIMOTHY B. SCHMIT released his last album. The standard opening question is: "Why did it take so long?"

The standard SCHMIT answer to most questions is funny in a self-deprecating way and rooted in simple truths. So of course he answers, "I wasn't ready until now!"

Patience is a virtue. And with a career that unfolds back to the halcyon 1960s, patience has served this storied artist well. He was in his teens when he charted for the first time. At the turn of the decade he joined POCO and helped steer the band into its pioneering fusions of country, rock and folk. In 1977 he became a member of the legendary EAGLES, an association that would continue on and off for decades.

Illuminated by an array of fine musicians and singers, LEAP OF FAITH--a strong mix of rock, country, Americana, R&B and even a bit of reggae--plays like a multicolored corona around SCHMIT's distinctive artistry. From the jaunty opening track "My Hat" to the soaring harmonies and heartfelt reflections of "This Waltz," this is more than another album in a great artist's catalog. It is a milestone effort, looking back at all that brought him to where he stands today and ahead to a future full of both mystery and promise.

LEAP OF FAITH marks the culmination of SCHMIT's unhurried, yet inspired reflections of life. On his new album, he goes further up the path he began to explore on Expando. "Again, I wanted to write this album on my own," he says "In any collaboration one has to make a series of compromises. That's not a bad thing, it's simply not what I've chosen to do with this project. I'm just putting it out there, and maybe some of these ideas might resonate with listeners."

"Over the last ten years or so, I've felt like I'm finally getting the hang what it is I do best," SCHMIT sums up with his knack for wry understatement. "Although this project took some time to complete, this is what I came up with ... This is who I am. This is a LEAP OF FAITH."

Patience pays off: LEAP OF FAITH is well worth the wait.
