Jerry Leger takes exclusive release "Too Broke To Die" to Europe

26-04-2019

This month respected Canadian singer/songwriter Jerry Leger will be returning to Europe accompanied by Dan Mock on bass/vocals and Kyle Sullivan on drums/vocals both from his longtime band The Situation. On this tour they'll carry a limited edition European-only compilation titled Too Broke To Die - A Retrospective 2005-2019 will coincide with the tour and be available at shows only.

Too Broke To Die pulls together 19 songs from Leger’s 10 albums so far along with two previously unreleased numbers and it’s a splendid introduction to his fine blend of folk, rock and, for want of a better word, Americana. There are reflective ballads and balls to the wall rockers scattered throughout with the connective tissue consisting of Leger’s voice which is somewhat of a more mellifluous take on the late sixties Dylan coupled with an occasional resemblance at times to the vocals of Daniel Meade. Without any detailed info re the makeup of the album we’d guess it’s in chronological order as there’s a definite sense of the songs, arrangements and production values becoming more sophisticated as the disc plays.

Jerry Leger is a rock’n’roll romantic and a bit of a poet by now and the closing songs all reflect this. The album is an interesting (and very listenable) portrait of his artistic arc and, as we said above, if you want a hard copy, you need to get to one of the upcoming shows:
