Music Box session #3 saw Canadian artist Leif Vollebekk and his Wurlitzer (yes, another one) drop by the studio during a visit to the UK.
Hailing from Ottawa, the multi-instrumentalist grew up on the music of Bob Dylan, Lou Reed and Neil Young whilst also developing a taste for the works of Beat generation writers such as Ginsberg and Bukowski,
The late-night Americana artist is a passionate performer, as you can see for yourself, but also has a fantastic sense of humour.
Around two years ago he released his brilliant album North Americana – a collection of indie-folk songs cut to tape, which was followed by the stunning song ‘Elegy’ – which he performed for the session – melding downtempo piano chords with his standout vocal style.
Vollebekk specialises in this reflective, heart-on-sleeve music that recalls the likes of Ryan Adams and Bruce Springsteen that really hits you.
His latest record Twin Solitude was released on 24 February to critical praise and he’s set to perform in the UK from 25 March to 3 April – full tour details here.
