Leeroy heads to the UK again

Lauded by Maverick magazine as an artist with “songs to die for and a voice to savour”, 22-year-old Canadian singer/songwriter Leeroy Stagger will be returning to the UK this November for a three week tour alongside guitar virtuoso Nick Harper.

This past August saw Stagger on an introductory two week solo tour of the UK to plug his new album Beautiful House, which was released there on September 19th. After rocking the socks off of audiences stretching from London to Glasgow – and performing alongside Peter Bruntnell, Viarosa and Roddy Hart – Stagger returned home to Victoria, BC for a nationwide tour with his band The Sinking Hearts, which included a jam packed showcase at CMJ in New York City.

As UK press and radio starts to roll out in support of his sophomore album, Stagger is eager to return and pick up where he left off. All Stagger dates are solo/acoustic and are including Nick Harper unless otherwise stated:
