The Bluegrass Situation Premieres Andrew Leahey & the Homestead’s “Little in Love”

The Bluegrass Situation premiered the music video for Andrew Leahey & the Homestead’s “Little in Love” this morning, shining a light on the kickoff track and lead single from the rock & roll band’s upcoming release, ‘Skyline in Central Time.’ The record will be released August 5th, in conjunction with Thirty Tigers.

Shot in a miniature toy shop in south Nashville, the “Little in Love” video serves as a high-spirited introduction to an emotional album that was written on either side of Andrew’s life-saving brain operation. While stacked vocal harmonies, B3 organ and Les Paul guitars ring in the background, the clip follows Andrew as he pursues one of the shop’s employees, hoping to win her affection. Along the way, some of the toy shop’s pint-sized figurines spring to life. The result is equal parts heartwarming and comedic, all set to a sound that Rolling Stone describes as “heartland rock & roll.” 

Produced by Wilco’s co-founder, Ken Coomer, ‘Skyline in Central Time’ rounds up 11 original songs, with Andrew pulling triple-duty as singer, songwriter, and lead guitarist. The album doubles as the band’s national debut, arriving after a half-decade’s worth of cross-country touring and independent releases. 
This week, Andrew will help lead a pair of songwriting workshops at the 2016 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Hosted by the arts education non-profit Commonwealth Word, the workshops will focus not just on the musical component of songwriting, but on lyric writing, as well. The first workshop, the Woody Guthrie-inspired “This Roo is Your Land,” will help kick off the festival on Thursday, June 9, at 1 p.m. The second, “Lovin’ Bluesful,” will find attendees writing their own blues songs on Saturday, June 11, starting at 9 a.m. Both classes will be held inside the adobe building in Centeroo that formerly housed Bonnaroo’s post office.
