Shane Leonard and his Kalispell project is a long-time TS favorite. Shane played a central role in my first exposure to locally-rooted music here in the Chippewa Valley. His incredible (and obvious) talent and his incredibly warm nature drew me to him and his music immediately when I heard and met him almost four years ago. His last full-length album, Westbound, had just recently come out back then. What a beautiful, warm album. It impacted my family and me deeply.
So, we have been excited for the release of Shane’s new album, Printer’s Son. It is every bit as beautiful and emotive (although in different ways) as Westbound. I’m happy to share one of the songs from this new record, Gary, IN on this week’s TS10, along with nine other sweet songs. Throw some headphones on and take a listen!
