Originally from Nova Scotia, Mike Legere is an indie-rock songwriter and producer now based out of Toronto, ON. After years spent playing with bands like Century Thief and Places Erupt, he embarked on his solo career in 2018 and released his debut Ourselves in Public LP that same year. To support the record, Mike booked a solo tour with Dante Matas and his band, who share members with Century Thief. Omar and Colin McNally joined him for a few songs throughout the tour, and later joined the project along with Greg O’Toole (Places Erupt).
New single, “Love Songs (In Fear Of Dying Penniless),” was recorded live off the floor to capture the energy the band had developed. A dark and brooding song about navigating break ups and loss with our friends and community, it captures the feeling of suddenly being on the outside, surrounded by one experience of grief and expected to perform another.
