Jerry Leger & The Situation

There’s always been something special about Jerry Leger’ s songs that few can match. He manages to channel the youthful vigor of Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Neil Young and Rick Danko, sometimes all within the same song. But at heart, Leger is driven by a quest to convey in his own manner the purity embedded in the grooves of the vintage rock, country and soul recordings he so dearly loves. This trait attracted early support from fellow singer/songwriters like Ron Sexsmith, and his staunchest ally, producer and label head Michael Timmins of Cowboy Junkies.

Employing his distinctive live-off-the-floor recording approach on Nonsense And Heartache, Timmins focused on capturing the chemistry between Leger and his core musicians. The relationship between Leger and Timmins works so well because, as songwriters, each shares a fondness for arcane Americana.  Through persistence and patience, Jerry Leger has been finding his own home within the Canadian music scene, earning his place in the pantheon of this country’s great singer/songwriters.
