Born in Ottawa in 1985, Leif Vollebekk taught himself music using instruments inherited from his grandfather: harmonica, guitar, piano, and an old fiddle. Although he began with songs off the radio, originals started coming too, especially during a year spent in Iceland: gigging around Reykjavik practicing his burled Icelandic, trying out new refrains. Vollebekk's debut album was released in 2010. Recorded and mixed in only ten days, Inland was the first record to be recorded on Breakglass Studios' newly-acquired 1968 Neve console, the very same board used on Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti. Hailed as "beautiful, memorable and moving" by NPR and "timeless and monumental" by London's Independent, Inland is reissued here on vinyl courtesy of new label home Secret City Records.
