Lenny LeBlanc was born in Massachusetts and grew up Daytona Beach, Florida where he learned to play the bass guitar and joined his first band during high school. After graduation, he briefly moved to Cincinnati, Ohio where he lived until 1973, when LeBlanc’s friend and famed guitarist Pete Carr encouraged him to relocate to Florence, Alabama. After a few months Lenny began playing bass as well as singing background vocals with artists like Hank Williams Jr., Crystal Gayle, Etta James, Shenandoah, Ricky Skaggs, Sawyer Brown, The Supremes, Joan Baez, Amy Grant and Roy Orbison.

With much success as a background musician and singer, Lenny LeBlanc embarked on a solo career. In 1975, he recorded a demo and producer Pete Carr sent a copy to Jerry Wexler at 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 three chart singles, including the top 15 hit "Falling". LeBlanc and Carr began touring with major acts. After a while 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 Records.

In 1980, LeBlanc became a born-again Christian and began recording Christian-themed music. In 1983, Heartland Records released his first Christian album Say A Prayer. In 1987, LeBlanc opened his own recording studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama where he does his own productions as well as others.

LeBlanc continues to write pop and country songs, including hits like “Treat Her Right” for Sawyer Brown and “You First” with Mac McAnally along Christian compositions such as the highly successful “Above All” and “There Is None Like You.”. He still travels nationally and internationally as a Christian artist and serves on the worship team at Faith Church in Florence, Alabama.

His latest project Love Like No Other includes a newly recorded version of “Falling”, as well as nine original worship songs. Willie Nelson recorded the Donnie Fritts co-write “Old Timer” on his 2017 album God’s Problem Child.
