Leif Vollebekk releasing new album, touring (dates, stream)

by Bill Pearis


Montreal songwriter Leif Vollebekk will release his new album, North Americana, on February 19. That’s the cover art above and the photo was actually taken by BV contributor Dominick Mastrangelo. Vollebekk spent nearly two years making the album, recording it in Montreal, New York City and La Frette-sur-Seine, France and features violin work from Arcade Fire’s Sarah Neufeld. You can stream “Off the Main Drag” below.

We’ve caught Leif a few times, at M for Montreal and SXSW for example, and he’s an engaging live performer. He’s got some shows coming up, including one in NYC on February 7 at Rockwood Music Hall, opening for Willy Mason. Advance tickets are available.
