John Lefebvre made his debut CD, the 29-song opus, Psalngs (pronounced
songs) while he was out on bail. Unable to leave Los Angeles for an
indefinite period of time, after his arrest in 2007 by the US Justice
Department, the Canadian-born Lefebvre made the best of what could have
been an unpleasant situation. He assembled a dream-team of musicians,
guided by legendary Nashville producer Brian Ahern (Anne Murray,
Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash), spent three weeks putting down live
tracks at Village Recorder studios and gave life to a collection of
songs that range in tone from romantic to rant and speak to his
deepest-held ideals: love, truth, respect and honesty.
The entire project, plus videos of select songs and a 30-minute documentary on the making of Psalngs is available for free download on Lefebvre’s web site: www.Psalngs.com.
“Music is like a beautiful painting,” Lefebvre says of his decision to make all of the tracks available at no charge. “I wanted to put it out there for people to enjoy.”
