Winnipeg singer-songwriter Slow Leaves brings songs from his new record Meantime to Montreal with special guest Sam Kruger.
Slow Leaves is the self-contained solo project of Grant Davidson. He curates almost every aspect of the music and its presentation, including being multi-instrumentalist, producer, cover art designer, photographer, and video director. He views the totality of these aspects as essential parts of a larger project of self-understanding. His folk and psych-rock stylings recall older songwriters like Mickey Newbury and Nick Drake as well as more modern artists like Andy Shauf and Jolie Holland. His voice has been compared to Roy Orbison and Bryan Ferry. His newest album, Meantime, is out on Birthday Cake Records.slowleaves.com
Sam Krüger is a folk influenced songwriter who in 2016 left London Ontario for Montreal with only a suitcase and a backpack. Soon finding a used guitar, he has now played hundreds of shows from cafés and laundromats to living rooms and festivals. He released “All Sick again” in 2018 and followed it up with an Otis Redding cover which features the vocal talents of his mother. In April of 2023 he released a live acoustic EP that was played on multiple CBC stations and charted on independent radio across Canada. “The songs I write in my bedroom” showcases the pure fingerpicking talents and the nostalgic and honest style for which he has become known.www.samkrugermusic.com/
