It's All Good, the latest release by Minneapolis rockers, gb leighton, is a hook - heavy 12-song disc filled with honest, soulful, rock 'n' roll of the best kind. From the full and mature sound of the first cut, 'Most Important Night Of My Life,' to the boardwalk rock of 'Fly My Plane,' and the roots flavor of 'County Road,' It's All Good is rock music reminiscent of John Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen, yet singularly gb leighton.

Displaying his growth as a songwriter, It's All Good comes straight from the heart of a true musician and showcases good old fashioned rock 'n' roll; as was Leighton's intention. "We rocked this one up a little bit more, went a little heavier on the guitars. We're making it sound a little more rock than my previous albums," he explained.

Recorded in Minneapolis and Memphis, and produced by Jim Gaines (Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Lee Hooker) It's All Good will be released on Moonsong Records. As his first full-length studio album since 1996's Come Alive, the release follows the highly successful Live From Pickle Park, which captured the energy and intensity of the band's legendary live performances.

The energy he brings to the stage is suggestive of the signature style of his idol, Bruce Springsteen, who hit the scene about 30 years ago with Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ. "He's the guy who got me going, Leighton said of Springsteen. "I guess it was about the attitude of having a good time in life...and so that's kind of what I've always tried to have my music be - just different aspects of life." One aspect of performing life Leighton is definitely familiar with is working his way up the live ladder.

He has played four to five nights a week for the past 10 years and has gone from playing small clubs as a band, to solo support for national/international tours with The BoDeans, Joe Cocker, Boz Skaggs, Chuck Berry and, most recently, Jonny Lang.

Yet with all the accolades, Leighton's desire remains unmistakable; to continue to do what he loves best of all; playing his music.
