Earlier this year, JUNO Master Class songwriter Slow Leaves (aka Grant Davidson) revealed the video for “How Do I Say” shot and directed by award winning filmmakers Ft. Langley. Today, Slow Leaves is sharing the video for the title track from his upcoming album, Enough About Me, which was filmed by a director of a different calibur - his seven year son.
“The video is notably the first collaboration between my son and I that has not ended in mutual frustration and conflict,” says Davidson. “‘Enough About Me’ is about my inherent selfishness and fittingly features the cuter of us two behind the lens.”
Following Enough About Me’s release on August 11, Slow Leaves will head out on tour throughout Canada to support the record. Full tour dates can be below with more dates to be announced shortly.
Enough About Me is his most personal album to date, reflecting on an ordinary life where meaning is invented and comfort is found in the realization that there are no answers. The album was born of the demos Davidson had recorded in his Winnipeg basement. Joined by frequent bandmates and collaborators Jason Tait (Bahamas, Weakerthans), Rusty Matyas (Imaginary Cities, Sheepdogs), and Julie Penner (Broken Social Scene, Do Make Say Think), these ten songs represent a true distillation of his influences while acknowledging, as the self-referential title suggests, that no man (or record) is an island.
After three albums released under his own name, Davidson shifted to the moniker Slow Leaves for the 2014 critically lauded release Beauty Is So Common. In 2015, Slow Leaves garnered further attention for his selection in the Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class. With Enough About Me, Slow Leaves continues to spare nothing in creating vivid images and heartfelt connections — the culmination of where he’s been and where he’s going.
