Alberta-based singer/songwriter Leeroy Stagger has independently released his tenth studio album, ‘Dream It All Away’, through his own Rebeltone record label on Tuesday, May 12th. Canadian tour dates in support of the album kick-off in Red Deer on May 27th. Full tour details are listed below.Songwriters are the fortunate ones. They go on the same emotional road trips we all go on, often taking advantage of moments of solitude to distill their memories into stories with cathartic rhymes that convey barriers – real and imagined – possibly identifying with others through various truths about themselves. On Leeroy Stagger’s new album, ‘Dream It All Away’, there’s a quest for revealing personal truths while simply being able to lay down one’s thoughts on the whole deal.Produced by Russell Broom (Sam Roberts, Julian Lennon) and recorded in Calgary and Lethbridge, Alberta, Stagger’s tenth studio record begins with a mood setting soundscape that drops into a four on the floor, rock ‘n’ roll heartbeat. Swaggering guitars backed with the fearless rhythm section of Pat Seward (Bryan Adams, The Odds) and Mike Lent (kd lang, Jann Arden) provide the bedrock for Stagger’s raw lyrics delivered with his signature never-wavering vocals.The album features rough and tumble tracks like ‘New Music Biz Blues’ which has all the buzz and fury of an instant classic, documenting his 10 year career starting off in the punk dive bars of Vancouver. On ‘Poison The Well,’ we understand that we are firmly in the heart and guts and of an album that has come knocking on the door with knowledge and attitude. The first single, ‘Something Beautiful,’ measures out the manic ups and downs of an artistic life in transit between youth and responsibility while ‘Living In America’ is a chilling portrait of a place that knows how to hold on to its darkness. ‘Dream It All Away’ is the sound of a songwriter entering his 12th year of truly relentless recording, touring, discovering and documenting the good, bad, happy, and sad – the true joy and chore of the troubadour. Don’t miss out on your chance to see the man in action! Catch Leeroy Stagger live on tour this May and June in support of his new album out on May 12th.
