We’re delighted to be working with Montréal’s Leif Vollebekk for the first time!

Some artists go on feeling like secrets long after they’ve started being told. Leif Vollebekk, who released his third album in February is one of these treasures. Born in Ottawa in 1985, he taught himself music using instruments inherited from his grandfather: harmonica, guitar, piano, an old fiddle.

Vollebekk’s latest, long overdue LP, Twin Solitude, is the product of everything that came before: the unending tours, the slow cover songs, the experience of seeing Prince, alone at a piano.

‘I used to think, “This will be kinda like a Neil Young song,” “This will be kinda like a Bob Dylan song,”‘ Vollebekk says. ‘I kinda ran out of people to imitate. And then there was just me.’

This show is a co-promotion with One Inch Badge.
