Lenny LeBlanc was born in Leominster Mass. June 17th, 1951. In 1955 his family moved south to Daytona Beach Florida. It was there at the age of 15 his fascination with music became more than just a dream.

Like many East Coast youth, Lenny spent his summers on the beach surfing until he met some teens that played guitars. That was all it took and before long, he had a job washing dishes to pay for his first bass guitar. During the next three years of school Lenny played at dances and local clubs around Daytona. By this time he had begun developing his vocal talents as well. "It seemed like I was always picked to be the lead singer in whatever band I was in, mainly by default because no one else could carry a tune."

After graduating from high school in 1969 and moving to Cincinnati, Ohio for two years, it was time once again to move on. Former band member and good friend Pete Carr had become a very successful producer and studio guitarist in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. He encouraged Lenny to join him there. After a few months Lenny began playing bass as well as singing background vocals with artists like Hank Williams Jr., Amy Grant and Roy Orbison.

With much success as a background musician and singer, the next logical step for Lenny LeBlanc was a solo career. In 1975, he recorded a demo and producer Pete Carr sent a copy to Jerry Wexler (Atlantic Records). A few months later Lenny's first solo LP was released. Atlantic saw great potential in Lenny and teamed him with Pete Carr. The result was the top 10 hit "Falling," LeBlanc and Carr began touring with major acts. After awhile Carr decided he enjoyed making the records more than promoting them so the duo went their separate ways. LeBlanc continued writing songs and pursuing a solo effort, this time with Capitol.

In 1980 Lenny decided to commit his life and his music to Jesus Christ. In 1983 Heartland records released the "Say a Prayer" LP which was followed by the "Person to Person" LP in 1984. In 1987 Lenny opened his own recording studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama where he does his own productions as well as others.
