Close your eyes and enjoy the special universe that Canadian artists have offered us lately. The experimentations of Radiohead are close enough to the artistry of Montreal’s Ottawa Leif Vollebekk’s new single ‘I’m Not Your Lover.’ What about having a surprise live version of said hit song? The Canadian singer-songwriter gifted us a wonderful performance of the track at Los Angeles’ The Troubadour, and we only want to cuddle with him!
Groove To Your Feelings!
“Lilac and dogwood in the summer air/Kentucky grass wishing that you were there,” Leif Vollebekk murmurs on ‘I’m Not Your Lover.’ The imagery we feel through his words is like a walk in nature. There is no need to do complicated work. With simple lighting and his piano, the Montrealer creates miracles that remind us of Michael Kiwanuka‘s poetic vibes. The tenderness of his latest record submerges us in a world of solid grooves and hooking falsettos. We can always find New Ways to grow up better and stronger. Witness the power of Leif Vollebekk live on tour across North America this winter! Get your tickets here!

“See the lights now that I’m getting to the city /Drifting in thrift stores I see something pretty/I see a jacket I’d wear til I gave it to you” Leif Vollebekk ‘I’m Not Your Lover’ hypnotize’s us with its smooth and imprinted with sadness, lyrical ventures. The singer published a new version of his track from 2019’s album, New Ways that you can stream here. We are mesmerized by the beauty of the production.

Leif Vollebekk’s live performance is stellar and such a classical masterpiece with the predominance of piano and his soothing vocals. Cradle yourself to the sweet sounds. Stream here.
