No-nonsense four-piece rock band
Dead Levee is an old-school no-nonsense four-piece rock band from Regina, Saskatchewan. Their aggressive, organic, and attitude-driven style harkens back to the high-energy rock of the late ’60s with the attitude of ’90s rock.
Their new song, “Shout,” came about from a tough situation. “It’s funny ’cause we can laugh about it now, but our previous singer cancelled on us hours before the band had to be on stage for an entire night of live music.“
Naturally, to fulfil our contract there was some improv on stage that night. To fill the dead air, our guitarist “Sweet Baby” Ray Klapatiuk, started playing a random riff and the rest of the band jumped in. Our bassist (and now lead vocalist!) Tayler “Izzy” Morgan even started singing lyrics on the spot that fit the vibe. This impromptu jam was brought to the studio, and “Shout” was born.
“Dead Levee as a whole has changed drastically since the production/release of the Rise Up EP. We have a much stronger bond of camaraderie, having removed toxic ego-driven dramatic elements of the previous team. All in all, we’ve grown into a happier and healthier band that has twice as much fun and this new release is a sonic renaissance for us. We’re finally feeling in control of the music we produce.”
