The Celtic Music Radio Album of the Week commencing Saturday 7 December is the new CD from Canadian singer-songwriter David Leask called ‘Underneath’. Stevie Connor talks to David about his music this new album.
David Leask writes on his website: “Whether my songs are flavoured with folk, Celtic, country or rock influences, my goal is to write music from the soul.”
Two-time International Songwriting Competition Winner David Leask has crafted his fourth studio album “Underneath”.
David’s first full-length release in over eight years, “Underneath” ushers in a new artistic era for this musical lifer and multi-award winner who’s enjoyed comparisons to such master storytellers as John Prine and John Hiatt. Co-produced by David Leask and Juno-winning multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Justin Abedin and mixed by Grammy winner Chad Carlson, “Underneath” is a deeply evocative, soul-stirring collection that stands as a high watermark along an adventurous, strongly independent and continually evolving career path.
Following three critically acclaimed releases garnering national airplay on radio and CMT, “Underneath” is the rich and robust culmination of thousands of shows played, over 100 songs written, the stellar contributions of over 25 world class musicians, and many inventive days and nights of bringing it all to life in six Toronto and Nashville studios.
David has decided to give a concert that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. On Sunday 8 December, David will be doing a Stage-It Concert broadcasting live on the web at 8.00pm Sunday 8 December in the UK and around the world at 3.00pm (EST) and 7.00am the following day, Monday 9 December in Australia. There’ll be a chat room where you can make requests or comments. Visit davidleask.com
