About Slow Leaves

Grant Davidson, known professionally as Slow Leaves, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and musician. Davidson began playing guitar at age 15, inspired after discovering a Led Zeppelin II cassette tape in his older brother’s room. It was a finger-picked guitar however that would eventually form the heart of his songs. Davidson’s voice is fragile and assured. His music could exist as comfortably in the ‘70s as it does in today’s age of curated images and hollow soundbites, when vulnerability can be seen as defiance and sincerity as radical.

On his most recent release, 2021’s Holiday (Birthday Cake), Davidson sought reprieve from pointed self-analysis, this time observing life through a decidedly more abstract lens. “I started recording music simply for fun,” he explains, “trying not to overthink, avoiding the impulse to turn every song into a personal manifesto. I needed a break from myself”. 

About The Bros. Landreth · Winnipeg, MB

The Bros. Landreth welcome a new day with their album Come Morning, marking a rebirth and refinement of the JUNO-winning band's North American roots music and harmony-heavy soul. The most immersive, emotive record of the Landreths' career, it finds brothers Joey and Dave lacing their melody-driven songs with layers of atmospheric synth, organ and textured guitar. The group's previous albums shone a light on their strength as a live act, capturing the spontaneity and sonic stomp of these hard-touring road warriors. If those records unfolded like snapshots of The Bros. Landreth's nighttime shows, then Come Morning sketches showcases the introspection and clarity that comes with a long period of rest. At the album's core are the Landreths themselves: two born-to-collaborate brothers who sing songs about hard truths and new beginnings, having been brought back together during a time of unprecedented isolation.
