Track of the Day: Leif Vollebekk - “Into The Ether”

Montreal singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Leif Vollebekk has unveiled the second song from his forthcoming album ‘Twin Solitude’.

‘Twin Solitude’ was born out of recalibration; Leif changing his approach to songwriting and exploring musical ideas that came to him spontaneously. Many of the songs on the album were written in one sitting, including the breathtaking “Into The Ether” which came to be whilst playing piano.

Listen to “Into The Ether” BELOW:

Leif released his breakthrough sophomore album ‘North Americana’ in 2013, and since then has performed at the Newport Folk Festival and shared stages with Daniel Lanois, Beth Orton, Sinéad O’Connor, Patrick Watson, Coeur de Pirate, William Fitzsimmons and Sam Amidon. His 2010 debut ‘Inland’ was described as “beautiful, memorable and moving” by NPR and “timeless and monumental” by The Independent.
