Biography

In 2004, Victoria Canada had been thrown into the spotlight due to the success of garden city hipsters HOT HOT HEAT. Right in the midst of that was Leeroy Stagger, who had HHH’s seal of approval as touring support for the band and musical contemporary early on. “I wasn’t ready and nothing really came about for me throughout that time period” recalls Stagger, but he did manage to release the critically acclaimed “Dear Love” album, a “Whiskeytown-esque” tinged alt- country rock gem produced by Victoria’s own Tolan Mcneil, (Neko Case, Carolyn Mark) and attract the attention of Vancouver Independent label “Boompa Records”. In 2006, Boompa released Stagger’s “Beautiful House” album, produced by Canadian musical treasure “Danny Michel”. The single “Just in Case” was featured in two episodes of ABC’s acclaimed series “Grey’s Anatomy”, as well as a multitude of other television shows and films.

In 2007, Boompa released Stagger’s first “coming of age and voice” record “Depression River”. The album showcased a more matured songwriting talent and confident voice. The record was followed up with a 2-month U.S. tour, as well as a handful of U.K. and European dates.

In 2008, halfway through recording his follow up to “Depression River”, Stagger’s life changed dramatically. He found sobriety. “It was like a huge weight had been lifted off of me, it was either booze or my career and I think I made the right choice”, and it showed in the recording process. His songs had evolved, and came from a purer, clearer perspective. Stagger enlisted “Depression River” producer John Ellis to man the helm for the project, as well as drummer Pat Steward (Brian Adams, The Odds), bassist Tyson Maiko and guitar player Kevin Kane (Grapes of Wrath).
