Saskatchewan songwriter and League of Wolves frontman Dillon Currie is proud to announce the upcoming independent release of his debut solo LP, 'Vines of Time', on September 8, 2023.

Featuring 10 intimate and dynamic tracks crafted between 2020 and 2022, 'Vines of Time' is a beautifully diverse collection of reflective, thought-provoking tales and introspective queries which expose the duality of the human condition. Pairing earnest song writing with gorgeous melodic delivery, Currie addresses his own complicated relationship with both legacy and mortality by weaving personal tales into a fictional landscape. The result is a collection of beautifully crafted narratives which meld difficult yet familiar tales of the past, the present, and the future into one gripping existential crisis.

Channeling song writing heroes like Elliott Smith, Andy Shauf, Andy Hull, and Jeff Tweedy, ‘Vines of Time’ is a significant departure from Currie’s earlier rock n’ roll roots with League of Wolves. On his debut solo effort, we are introduced to an alert and mindful lyricist, scratching the sonic edges of folk, alternative, and rock and binding them like clay. Thematically, ‘Vines of Time’ is a concept record which takes the listener on an expansive journey from the humble, naïve beginnings of a small-town prairie kid on ‘In My Town’ and follows them as they navigate through life’s many complex and difficult challenges. Featuring interwoven tales of love, loss, near-death experiences, trauma, poverty, regret, doubt, and accountability, the conclusion, and overarching theme of the record, becomes one of hope. Hope that, no matter the shortcomings of our pasts, that there is more to the story yet to be written if we choose.
