Fuelled by a constant flow of iced coffee, Leonard Podolak is a loud and relentless force of nature, carrying his laptop around to treat housemates to his favourite YouTube clips, banjo glued to his arm, shouting, “I’m a Cheatham County chitlin-cooking lover …” at the top of his voice to anyone within earshot.
-Colin Irwin, The Guardian
“…Canadian banjo virtuoso Leonard Podolak”
“Canada’s premier neo-tradsters romp from world-beat to blues, urban-pop to old- timey, with wild-eyed invention, haunting traditionalism, and spine-rattling groove.”
—The Boston Globe
“A tasty blend of..folk traditions with hard-grooving world beats, country, bluegrass, jazz, and a healthy injection of catchy, soulful pop.”
