There are songwriters who find a creative niche and never stray from it. Then there are songwriters who choose to continually break down what they are known for and start again from the ground up. Leeroy Stagger is the latter.

Leeroy Stagger to release 8th studio album “Truth Be Sold”
produced by Grammy Award winner Steve Berlin of Los Lobos.

Recorded at Portland Oregon’s Mystery Machine Studios “PDX” takes listeners on a journey to the edge of Stagger’s Heavy Roots Rock n Roll mind.

The 11 song album is a mix of brand new songs as well as Berlin’s picks from Stagger’s demo vault. The beautifully scathing “Cities On Fire” was written 8 years ago but was updated in the studio to document the Occupy Wall Street movement that was gaining momentum while the record was being made. In a departure from Staggers rootsy past, Stagger lets his punk rock past re emerge with a tip of the hat to “The Stooges” and “Queens of The Stones Age”.

Featuring fuzzed out guitars, midi sax solos under Stagger’s rollicking vocal deliveries, Grammy Award winner Steve Berlin took the band well away from their comfort zone. “Steve had a gigantic suitcase of percussion and a weird pedals. There wasn’t a song we recorded that didn’t have some foreign object taped to the drum kit or a pedal plugged into a guitar”, says Stagger,“ like the drum intro to “Celebrity” and the guitar on “Memo”. Berlin also played keyboards on the record and added his signature baritone sax sound to the Stones-ish rocker “Goodnight Berlin”.

“Leeroy Stagger is an extraordinarily talented singer, songwriter and player”, says Berlin, “and I've utterly enjoyed the process of collaborating with him on the new record. He has a unique combination of street smarts and a comprehensive world view that is rare among the current crop of todays young artists.”

Truth Be Sold will be released through Danny Goldeberg's (Steve Earle, The Hives, Tom Morello) newest label Goldlake in June 2013.

Leeroy Stagger is also a member of the folk trio Easton, Stagger, Phillips with acclaimed American songwriters Tim Easton and Evan Phillips.
