Stagger and Co. on the road again

One hundred and forty eight performances stretched across four countries on both sides of the Atlantic. The international debut and Canadian re-release of his latest album. Critically acclaimed reviews in publications around the world – from Harp and Uncut to indie ‘zines, Playgirl and German alt-country websites.

Leeroy Stagger had on heck of a year in 2005.

And just before the 23 year-old Victoria, BC native stops everything to devote his full attention to writing and recording a new album, the road is a-callin’ one last time.

In their first Canadian tour since June of last year, Leeroy Stagger & the Sinking Hearts will be hitting practically every town and city from Vancouver to Winnipeg – even Whitehorse! – in support of Stagger’s sophomore album Beautiful House.

Check out the tour section here for a complete list of dates. More are getting added to so be sure to keep checking back.

Considered to be Canada’s answer to a young Steve Earle, this shaggy-haired musician is an exciting and youthful voice on the Americana scene. And since these will be Stagger’s last batch of Canadian tour dates until early summer, you definitely don’t want to miss out.

Watch for Stagger’s limited edition release Tales From the Back Porch available in stores on April 4th, 2006.
