Adult Contemporary Folk Singer/songwriter

About

Slow Leaves is Winnipeg songwriter Grant Davidson. His upcoming record, Shelf Life (working title), marks his third studio album under the moniker Slow Leaves. With laid-back crooner’s lilt and nylon string guitar, Davidson finds universal themes through the deeply personal. Exploring ideas of lost time, elusive wisdom, romantic realism, and the struggle to reconcile family life, art, and aging, Slow Leaves persists in finding poetry in ordinary things and a humanity that shines in even the darkest corners.

Following three shoestring budget albums under his own name, Davidson adopted the moniker of Slow Leaves for 2014’s critically acclaimed Beauty Is So Common. Co-produced by Rusty Matyas of Imaginary Cities, the album reached #1 on the !earshot National Folk/Roots/Blues chart and was a CBC Radio 2 favourite where the single “Life of a Better Man” charted in the top 20.

Beauty’s follow-up, the self-produced Enough About Me, was released independently in North America and on Make My Day Records / Indigo in Germany in 2017. Born of the demos Davidson recorded in his home studio, the ten track album was later flushed out with accompaniment by Jason Tait (Bahamas), Rusty Matyas (Imaginary Cities), and Julie Penner (Do Make Say Think). The title track received heavy rotation on CBC Radio 2, appearing on the top 20 chart and peaking at #7 on the !earshot Top 50. Slow Leaves’ music has been featured on CBC's Definitely Not The Opera, Now Or Never, Q, The Vinyl Cafe, and The Next Chapter.
