Biography

Raised in Victoria, BC Leeroy Stagger worked in several local bands until gaining attention from acts such as Hot Hot Heat and Carolyn Mark. Stagger has garnered an international fan base through relentless touring both home and abroad. Stagger is already well on his way to joining the likes of John Hiatt, Ryan Adams and John Prine as an ambassador for North American roots rock ‘n’ roll.

"There has always been a swagger about Stagger, a slightly cocky self-confidence that’s actually quite endearing...and there’s an open and honest feel to his unaffected voice. This is arguably his best work yet."

− Exclaim (Radiant Land)

"From start to finish, it feels like Stagger put every ounce of himself into each melodies and each couplet. It’s sad but it’s honest, which is something lacking from music and life these days."

− Herohill (Little Victories)

"(Stagger)’s uncompromisingly honest, and all the more powerful for it, and twinned with the wonderfully evocative, haunting, and eclectic music within, Depression River is as mighty as the Mississippi."

− AllMusic (Depression River)
