JERRY LEGER & THE SITUATION
Med rötterna i deltat kryddar Jerry Leger sin Blues med en del Dylan, en del americana och en rejäl dos smärta och hjärta. En spännande artist och ett spännande band som är något av ett kultfenomen. Missa inte när de kommer till The Southside Cavern den 18 maj för en intim och tät spelning.
This April and May, respected Canadian singer/songwriter Jerry Leger will be returning to Europe accompanied by Dan Mock on bass/vocals and Kyle Sullivan on drums/vocals, both from his longtime band The Situation. A limited edition European-only compilation titled Too Broke To Die - A Retrospective 2005-2019 will coincide with the tour and be available at shows only. It features songs taken from all 9 releases plus two outtakes. 33-year old Leger has received praise in Rolling Stone, Pop Matters, No Depression, Americana UK and from fellow songwriters such as Ron Sexsmith (a couple Too Broke To Die tracks feature Sexsmith), Jim Lauderdale and Michael Timmins (of Cowboy Junkies, who is also Leger's producer/label head at Latent Recordings), yet he's remained somewhat under-the-radar. I'm sure he wouldn't mind commercial success but perhaps the career as a cult artist suits him better, as in the same fashion as songwriters like John Prine and Tom Waits. Both sold modestly but were highly-regarded artists for half of their careers before becoming musical legends; and like these writers, Leger is prolific uncompromising and fixated on artistic success. The examples are throughout Too Broke To Die and promote further listening of his already large and impressive body of work. Last year, Leger made his European debut with two tours in support of his acclaimed double LP Nonsense and Heartache (Latent/ Warner/Proper). They included dates with Trampled By Turtles, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers and the Take Root Fest, sharing the bill with artists such as Neko Case, Kurt Vile, Father John Misty, Shakey Graves, Alejandro Escovedo and more.
