Today, JUNO Master Class songwriter Slow Leaves (aka Grant Davidson) is sharing his upcoming album, Enough About Me, ahead of its release date with a full album stream courtesy of CBC Music. Also this week, the album’s title track “Enough About Me” also found its way into the CBC Radio 2 Top 20.
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.
Enough About Me is Davidson’s 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.
