Leeroy Stagger plays Fratters May 27th

Alberta-based singer/songwriter Leeroy Stagger is hitting the road in support of his 10th studio album Dream It All Away, with a Red Deer stop slated for May 27th at Fratters Speakeasy.

On Stagger’s new album, 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, Stagger’s 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 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, listeners understand they 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 portrait of a place that knows how to hold onto its darkness.

Dream It All Away is the sound of a songwriter entering his 12th year of relentless recording, touring, discovering and documenting the good, bad, happy, and sad – the true joy and chore of the troubadour.
