Jerry Leger at Old Church Theatre
June 24 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM$25.00
Jerry Leger follows up his critically acclaimed studio album ‘Time Out For Tomorrow’ with ‘Nothing Pressing’; produced by Michael Timmins (Cowboy Junkies). Jerry’s last self-released album ‘Songs from the Apartment’ was a stripped-down lo-fi affair recorded in Leger’s home using a cheap recorder with an internal microphone. Leger often times finds himself at a loss as to explain the source of his songs. He feels his songwriting, while clearly drawing on experiences filtered through a panoply of influences, often verges on being a supernatural experience. Over the course of the eleven songs on ‘Nothing Pressing’, the songwriter’s songwriter engages with questions of existence, mortality, hope, trust and heartbreak while simultaneously conjuring feelings of isolation, reflection, longing and gratitude. Paired with such evocative lyrics are wonderfully crafted melodies, soulful vocals and the spirit and energy of a mature songwriter, comfortable in his skin and growing as an artist with every release. ‘Nothing Pressing’ serves a wonderfully refreshing tonic in troubling times.
