Toronto’s Jerry Leger returns to The Carleton – with a band this time! – and friends Thomas Matheson and Laura Merrimen for what will be a killer show on Monday, May 4th. Show time is 8 PM and it’ll be $10 at the door.
Jerry’s one of our fave under-appreciated songwriters and his new album, Early Riser, is a killer. But hey, don’t just take our word for it, here’s what a few other knowledgeable folks have to say!
“Sharply imagined songs.” – Globe & Mail
“Favorite discovery of the last week.” – Paste Magazine
“His best record so far. NNNN” – NOW Magazine
“One of Canada’s best.” – Exclaim!
“An astounding and commanding listen.” – PopMatters
“Deserving of a much wider audience and I think he’ll get it with this record.” – The Toronto Star
“His song writing has grown more and more concise, his stories more poignant, his voice more lived-in.
The guy is in it for the long haul, has already proved prolific, and I can’t wait to see where he travels.”
– Bob Mersereau, CBC
