Leif Vollebekk North American Tour in support of North Americana

Ann Powers of NPR Music included  Leif Vollebekk's North Americana the album on her "Under-The-Radar Albums Preview of 2014" list and said "Vollebekk also openly borrows from Jeff Buckley - always a daring move. With a grit-and-honey voice and a way of opening up his own confessions until they become universal, Vollebekk pulls it off."

On January 28th, Vollebekk released his U.S. debut North Americana on Missing Piece Records
The ten songs that comprise North Americana were performed by Vollebekk (vocals, guitar, piano, harmonica, a little rusty fiddle), jazz musicians Hans Bernhard (bass) and Philippe Melanson (drums), Arcade Fire's Sarah Neufeld (violin), Joe Grass(pedal steel) and Adam Kinner (tenor sax).
