Summer Sleeves EP is so appropriate as it snows on the first full day of Spring
Mixed by David Barbe (Drive-By Truckers, REM, Son Volt), and co-produced by Leahey, it’s the sound of the modern South: music for city highways and country lanes, for pop fans and roots rockers, for the heart as well as the heartland.
American Songwriter says: “Summer Sleeves is a sonic tribute to the sounds of the south and Nashville – Virginia-native Leahey’s adopted hometown – and blends influences from the likes of Whiskeytown, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan along with rock roots, twangy steel guitar and thoughtful lyrics.”
The Nashville-based Leahey recorded the songs with the Homestead, a group of childhood friends and Virginia-based musicians who added organ, harmonized guitar riffs, pedal steel, and three-part harmonies to the mix.
