At heart, Canadian singer-songwriter Jerry Leger is driven by a quest to convey in his own manner the purity embedded in the grooves of the vintage rock, country and blues recordings he so dearly loves. This trait attracted support from fellow singer/songwriters like Doug Paisley, Jim Lauderdale, Ron Sexsmith (who has called him “one of the best songwriters I’ve heard in quite some time”)and his staunchest ally, producer and label head Michael Timmins of Cowboy Junkies, who signed Jerry to his label, Latent Recordings in 2013. He has been called “one of Canada’s best” by Exclaim! and a “gifted storyteller” by The Toronto Star. His latest release, ‘Nonsense and Heartache’ is a 2-record set showcasing the two major musical sides of him. The idea was sphere headed by Timmins with ‘Nonsense’ displaying Leger’s rock ‘n’ roll and bluesy grit while ‘Heartache’ is a more folk-roots-melodic expression. Employing his distinctive live-off-the-floor recording approach on ‘Nonsense And Heartache’, Timmins focused on capturing the chemistry between Leger and his incredible long time band: multi-instrumentalist James McKie, bassist Dan Mock and drummer Kyle Sullivan, “The Situation.”
