Alive After Five: Leeroy Stagger 

Wednesday, Aug. 30 in the Grove Plaza

Canadian alt-country/folk/Americana musician Leeroy Stagger has been performing for almost two decades, releasing 11 studio albums and playing hundreds of tour dates worldwide. In his newest release, Love Versus (2017, True North), Stagger combines catchy beats with smart lyrics about surviving the modern world.

"I was going to call the album Love Versus Hate originally, but I shortened it because the Latin meaning of versus is 'against,'" Stagger writes on his website. "So it made more sense to me to think of the theme as love against everything, essentially. I think the idea with these songs is whether love is enough to conquer the struggle." Although the subject matter is deep, Stagger's smooth vocals—layered with the instrumentation of drummer Pete Thomas, guitarist Paul Rigby, keyboardist Geoff Hilhorst and bassist Tyson Maiko—makes for a sweet sonic treat.
