Canada’s Leif Vollebekk Returns To The UK For Autumn Dates

Written by Rahoul Naik

After sold-out headlining concerts in New York City, Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia, Ottawa, Toronto and more, plus an amazing 5 week tour this Spring with Gregory Alan Isakov, boasting nearly sold-out shows each night, Montreal singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Leif Vollebekk is happy to continue the Twin Solitude journey with summer festival dates across Canada and Europe and a fall European headlining tour in November.

Vollebekk will be taking part in many iconic festivals such as Les Inrocks in France; Best Kept Secret in Netherlands; Hurricane & Southside in Germany; FEQ, Vancouver Folk, Calgary Folk and Osheaga in Canada and more, before headlining concerts in ten countries across Europe in November. See full listing below.

Twin Solitude has been met with accolades from critics all over the world including NPR, The Fader, Uncut, Paste Magazine, Rolling Stone France, The Sunday Times Culture, Boston Globe, The Globe and Mail and more, plus radio play across Europe and North America, playlisting on Spotify’s New Music Friday in twelve countries as well as appearing on Spotify’s Viral Chart week of release in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Vollebekk wrote the ten-song Twin Solitude while re-calibrating from a creatively taxing period on the road, a time where his own songs just didn’t feel right to him. He began to find beauty in the everyday vignettes that made up his life at home and on the road: finding inspiration in a bike ride, a Moog synthesizer, an untuned guitar, a Nick Drake record.
