In All Things they do, Leahy excel. The pride of Lakefield, Ontario, the multi-talented musical collective have taken another major leap forward on this, their third Virgin/EMI Records release. So many artists narrow their focus once they become popular. Leahy continue to expand theirs, while never losing the essence of their unique and irresistible style. If variety is the spice of life, then Leahy fill an entire rack with diverse musical aromas and flavours.
In All Things takes the listener on another fascinating journey across different genres and musical cultures. There are the trademark instrumental pieces like "Pointe Au Pic Medley" (an homage to their Quebecois influences), "Gzowski Medley" (inspired by their respect for the Canadian cultural icon), "Wedding Day Jig," and "Chasing Rain," a tune capturing the step dancing element that's always a key part of the legendary Leahy live experience." Donnell Leahy is internationally recognised as a true master of his instrument, and these tunes confirm the ever-growing technical prowess of all eight group members.
They have taken similarly impressive strides forward with the vocal tracks on In All Things. The dramatic "High Places" showcases their sonic adventurousness, "Coyote" and "Runaway" are bright melodic pop songs, and "I Want You To Know" is a haunting ballad, featuring pure vocals and eloquent fiddle playing.
