• Leap of Faith - Timothy B Schmit

Glenn Frey's passing had left Eagles bandmate Timothy B. Schmit at home, shocked and in desperate need of musical distractions. He recorded Leap of Faith there, in a home studio once planned as an art space for his wife. With the Santa Monica Mountains in the distance and a patch of state-protected Californian wilderness stretched outside the front door, Schmit created a soundtrack for that sort of pitch-perfect American landscape, mixing bluegrass, Cajun, rock, Seventies soul and California country into the same track list.

Schmit is no newcomer. No cosmic-cowboy wannabe. Rather than focus on proving his country credentials, he sticks to the Schmit-ian basics on Leap of Faith, singing the songs with a gentle, unhurried voice that's more tailored to peaceful easy feelings than life in the fast lane. 

Leap of Faith marks Schmit's first solo release since 2009's Expando. Van Dyke Parks makes a return appearance this time around, playing accordion on the bluegrass tune Red Dirt Road, while Al Jardine's sons stack their harmonies throughout The Island, a Beach Boys-worthy to the Kokomo lifestyle.

Co-produced by Hank Linderman, who helped helm the Eagles' Long Road Out of Eden, Leap of Faith is the first Eagles-affiliated release since Frey's passing. ~ Rolling Stone
