Well, get ready for some of that fireside conversation with none other than JOY FM artists Josh Baldwin and David Leonard.

Josh Baldwin and David Leonard around the campfire
I recently had the pleasure of doing just that with Josh Baldwin and David Leonard, two artists who are super down-to-earth. If you’ve ever wondered what’s really going on in the minds of these gifted musicians, this is your chance. Josh, David, and I were discussing everything from the joys and challenges of their careers to those candid, vulnerable moments.
Josh Baldwin touched on feeling inadequate sometimes, especially when he’s on stage, knowing that people have paid to be there and see him. They both spoke openly about dealing with those inner voices that say, “Are you good enough to be doing this?” But they both agreed, the key is to keep going and to trust that you’re where you’re supposed to be. David Leonard put it well when he said, “There’s always someone better, but I feel like God has given me something to say.”
The conversation also got into who they’d want to bring on tour just for the company—no performing required! Josh Baldwin picked Mac Powell for the endless stories, and David Leonard went with Ed Cash for the same reason. They even joked that if they could pick each other, they would.
