Slow Leaves

Slow Leaves

Folk Roots Singer/songwriter


Slow Leaves is Winnipeg’s Grant Davidson. With sincere and poetic lyrics, lilting melodies, incisive observations, and a voice that’s warm and effortless, Slow Leaves calls to mind an old country-folk record newly discovered in your parent's attic. Despite self-describing as a forger of wisdom, Slow Leaves remains decidedly a songwriter rich in heart and Canadian humility.

Davidson began making records under his own name in 2006, releasing a sparse limited-run demo, Freestyle Walking (2006). Two full-band albums, Tired Limbs for Ashes (2009) and Dust and Violets (2011), followed thereafter and drew heavily from the sounds of 70s Nashville.

In 2014, Davidson, now as Slow Leaves, released the critically acclaimed full-length Beauty is so Common which reached #1 on the Canadian !earshot National Folk/Roots/Blues chart and was a CBC radio 2 favourite where his song “Life of a Better Man” charted. His music has also been featured on CBC's Definitely Not The Opera, The Vinyl Cafe, and The Next Chapter. Slow Leaves garnered further attention in 2015 for his selection in the Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class. Slow Leaves is currently working on a new record for release in fall of 2016, continuing to spare nothing in creating vivid images and heartfelt connections: the culmination of where he’s been and where he’s going.
