Since releasing his last album, Early Riser, Jerry Leger has taken a break from the road and spent time making music with his side project, The Del Fi’s. However, Leger and his band, The Situation, have been working on a new album which is due out later this year, so the time has come for them to “get back into the swing of things a little, casually,” quips Leger. And so, every Wednesday this January, Jerry Leger and The Situation can be found in the front room of The Cameron House at 10pm, revisiting some tunes from Early Riser and performing a few new tracks which are destined to be released on the new record.
Audiences can also expect Leger to include a cover or two throughout the evening to lead up to a new album release. “We thought it would be fun to film some covers by artists that I admire,” says Leger. “Like many, I was deeply saddened by the passing of one of the all time best - Leonard Cohen. He has been a big influence on my writing and the song ‘The Law’ features one of my favourite Cohen lines, ‘My heart is like a blister from doing what I do’. I can relate to that.”
Joining Leger on stage during the residency will be a rotating cast of guests who include Don Stevenson (Moby Grape) and Tim Bovaconti, Ben Somer, Matt Cooke (The Del Fi’s), and Angie Hilts (Rucksack Willies, The Double Cuts), with The Del Fi’s closing the night out every Wednesday at midnight.
