Michael LeClerc is a Canadian singer/songwriter with a style reminiscent of Van Morrison, Dave Matthews or Jack Johnson. His sweet and soulful voice penetrates deeply, with a dream-like quality against an acoustic guitar that drifts between deftly executed finger-style to jangly strumming, and segues easily from love ballad to upbeat rocker. Currently located in Southern California, he is carving a niche for himself up and down the west coast, playing wineries, clubs and songwriter showcases from San Diego to Vancouver, Canada. Fiercely independent, Michael has been playing since the age of seven, and always knew that music was his calling. Growing up in the rural, blue-collar community of Chatham, Ontario fueled his wanderlust, but like many artists, there were several turns in the road before he made the decision to commit to music full time. Some of his early vocations included picking tobacco and working in a corn mill, eventually leading him to pursue a degree in Hospitality and Business Development. After a few years living in Ireland and working with several prestigious hotels, he moved to the Cayman Islands, where his band Smooth Bill had the opportunity to open for top Canadian band The Tragically Hip in front of several thousand people. He has since played to many large audience, including the Twilight Concert Series in Del Mar, CA, andis just as comfortable playing on a big stage as his is to an intimate listening room audience. In 2011, he released his first solo EP with producer Jim Wirt (Fiona Apple, Incubus, Hoobastank), titled Radio. Local terrestrial and internet radio began to pick up on the title track, leading to a three-month tour of California that soon segued into a permanent move. 2015 saw the release of a new self-titled EP, and he has been a featured performer in Renaissance Hotels’ RLife concert series, a program that in the past has hosted artists like Bruno Mars and Robin Thicke. Drawing comparisons to James Taylor, Jackson Brown and John Mayer, Michael’s instant appeal and warm stage presence invites the audience to come closer and listen to what he has to say.
