Roots rocker Leeroy Stagger is bringing a pared down version of his show with The Rebeltone Sound to the Empress Theatre with his Campfire Diaries tour on Friday, Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m.
Stagger, who fuses roots, rock and pop music, is widely considered one of Canada’s best contemporary singer-songwriters.
Since first making his mark on the Canadian independent music scene in the early 2000s, Stagger has toured the world, both on his own and with the likes of Steve Earle, Pixies, Modest Mouse and Evan Dando.
Stagger’s performances and song writing have won him 102.7 The Peak’s highly competitive Performance Project in 2015 and the Calgary Folk Festival Pros and Prose contest in 2014.
His album Radiant Land was a nominee for the 2013 Western Canadian Music Award for Roots Solo Recording of the Year.
In April 2017, Lethbridge-based Stagger added to his large body of work with the release of his 11th album, Love Versus.
“I feel like I’ve been hitting my stride over the past three records, but this one especially feels like I’ve set a new standard, and everything I do now has to live up to it,” Stagger wrote on his Web site. “Something happened over the course of making this record, with all of us being at my house, totally immersed in what we were doing. I think you can really hear that in the music.”
Love Versus is also a milestone, marking the first recording made at Stagger’s home studio in southern Alberta.
His songs have appeared in such television shows as Grey’s Anatomy and Sons of Anarchy.
Tickets to see Leeroy Stagger and The Rebeltone Sound are available at macleodempress.com or by calling 403-553-4404.
