Main Street Music

This live EP is a collection of recordings from Leif Vollebekk's performances that took place between 2019 and 2021 at various locations. In this enduring worldwide pandemic, the album is a beaming ode to the unique connection live music brings, an amalgam of feelings that can only be shared with an audience. Of the album, Leif states, 'Last year I had a chance to revisit these songs and I realized they had something my records didn't have. They resonate with that incalculable energy of a live audience. It didn't matter whether they were listening to FM radio on the freeway, watching a CBS broadcast of The Late Late Show at home or standing right there in front me at the Troubadour in LA. The audience completes the music. They inform it and they shape it. They're on the other end of the frequency and they make new waves of their own. That symbiosis is something during these past two years I've missed more than anything. And I feel it on this record. The thing about live music is that, until about a hundred years ago, it was the only kind of music there was.'
