Published Jul 10, 2013Montreal singer-songwriter Leif Vollebekk has a recent album to promote, and in the coming months, he will be doing just that. Not only has he just confirmed a batch of tour dates stretching into the fall, but he's shared a free covers EP called Borrowed Time.
Vollebekk will spend the summer playing festivals and occasional club shows throughout Quebec, Ontario and New York. Then, once fall hits, he will head out to Canada's West Coast before making his way back across the Prairies all the way to Toronto. This marks his first trip to Western Canada since his opening trek with Aidan Knight last year.
"I'm so excited to be hitting the road with my band," Vollebekk said in a statement. "They're incredible musicians and I feel like we finally figured out how we want to approach the songs. Every time we play, it's totally different, but the song is always there. These are the same guys that played on Borrowed Time and the sound the get is just so warm. Fun fact: It'll be my first time on mountain time with them."
Speaking of Borrowed Time, that five-song EP is available to download for free right here. It features covers of tunes by artists both old and new, including the Beach Boys, the Killers, Neil Young, Sigur Rós and Bob Dylan. Scroll past the tour schedule to see the tracklist.
