Zig-Zag on CD

Forget what you've heard about drummers; Leh-Lo is about to dispel all of those stereotypes. Yes, he is a world-class rock drummer a la Dave Grohl or Stewart Copeland, having toured and recorded with some of the best including Big Sugar, Kalan Porter, Blinker the Star, and of course his band Joydrop. But Leh-Lo is the whole package: a gifted singer, a hit songwriter, and a soulful human being with wisdom far beyond his years. To get to the heart of Leh-Lo we'll have to start at the beginning... Born Lehlohonolo (don't even TRY to say it without explicit instruction!) Tony Rabalao, Leh-Lo was born in South Africa during the height of apartheid. In search of a home where they could raise a family without constant fear and civil unrest, his parents relocated to Ottawa, Canada, where Leh-Lo spent his formative years. It was as a teenager in the Canadian capital where he first challenged his parent's patience by bashing away behind the kit and blaring KISS and Rush on the stereo. Leh-Lo moved to Toronto to pursue his dreams of being a professional musician. It was there that Joydrop was formed, with Leh-Lo not only taking on the responsibility of holding down the rhythm section, but as one of the primary songwriters. Joydrop's first single, the Leh-Lo penned 'Beautiful', was arguably the band's most successful single and was a hit in both the U.S. and Canada. The band went on to have 2 major label releases, 3 hit singles, numerous film and TV placements, a Juno award nomination, and a Canadian Radio Music Award in the best new group category. After 6 years together, Joydrop disbanded and the band members went their separate ways. This gave Leh-Lo the opportunity to start working on a solo project where he was not only the songwriter, but performer as well. While he was writing new songs and sifting through older compositions, Leh-Lo started honing his guitar-playing and singing chops. In 2006, the time was right to commit the songs to tape, and 'Zigzag', Leh-Lo's debut solo CD was born. Even before it's release, 3 of the album's compositions have already been licensed to film and television productions, and another will be featured on a compilation that will accompany the soon-to-be released book '2012'. Co-produced by Leh-Lo and former Joydrop bassist Tom McKay, recorded by Jordon Zadorozny (Blinker the Star, Sam Roberts), and mixed by Mark Plati (David Bowie), 'Zigzag' is a collection of timeless, melodic, and superbly-crafted rock songs sung the way they were meant to be sung: by Leh-Lo himself.
