Following the release of his acclaimed 2019 album New Ways, Montreal’s Leif Vollebekk has announced a run of Australian shows for March 2020. Leif will perform co-headline shows with Melbourne’s inimitable Ainslie Wills in Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane, as well as perform a Brisbane’s Nine Lives Festival. Full run of dates below.
To celebrate the announcement, Leif Vollebekk has shared his new video for ‘Apalachee Plain’ which includes vocals from Australian singer-songwriter Angie McMahon and legendary pedal steel played Cindy Cashdollar. The stunning New Ways album closer captures Leif, glazed with rain, and a sprawling Icelandic landscape in black and white.
“A few years ago I was driving through the painted desert and saw a lone mustang running alongside the road. He looked so free. And he seemed to know everything. That image came back to me when I wrote it,” says Leif.
