FTC welcomes singer songwriter Jeff Leblanc

The Fairfield Theatre Company welcomes back singer songwriter and Sacred Heart alumnus Jeff Leblanc in support of his newest release, Vision on Friday, May 1, at 7:30 p.m.

A native New Yorker, the 29-year-old’s new album, Vision looks to distinguish the young talented performer from a crowded field of singer/songwriters. For Leblanc is the kind of person audience’s root for in a movie to get the lady, or accomplish his goal and make it to the top, and honestly Leblanc has made it.

With his natural musical skills coupled with his genuine likability, Leblanc is a success in the eyes of his growing fan base and those who meet him. An alumnus of Sacred Heart University, Leblanc earned his degree in history and imagined his destiny would likely have him end up as a middle-school teacher. However, Leblanc finds himself just like Keanu Reeves character in the Matrix who has taken the option to take a trip down the rabbit hole never to look back at the path he thought his life was going to be.

Since releasing his first EP Signals in 2009, Jeff Leblanc has epitomized success as an independent artist — netting two top ten albums on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart (2011’s Worth Holding On To & 2013’s My Own Way There). Besides this, Leblanc has scored dozens of television placements, achieving both satellite and commercial radio play, sold-out headlining shows across the country as well as has performed with a wide range of some of music’s biggest names including Gavin DeGraw, Luke Bryan, Colbie Caillat, Brett Dennen, Ingrid Michaelson, Parachute, and Chris Isaak just to name a few.

Slightly R&B and somewhat soulful, Leblanc’s new album looks to continue where Leblanc left off by elevating his signature blend of smooth pop to a higher level — all the while tackling sounds and topics he has yet to explore in his previous efforts.  “I really challenged myself on this record” LeBlanc says.  “I went into the studio each and every day, focused to create something deeper than I ever had before.”

The core of the record was tracked in Nashville’s legendary Sound Emporium studios and the results are evident.  There is a distinct energy to Vision – with its timeless warmth and unique clarity that is instantly refreshing.

Audiences get ready to listen to an album which will make you feel as though you are catching up with an old friend over a cup of coffee. In the track Stumbled, Leblanc shares the blunders of re-entering the dating scene and the heartbreak of falling for someone too fast.

Say Anything You Want, is a response to all those in your life who criticize or doubt you, that is performed with a boastful almost arrogant tone. The song drives home the message that no one has the right to put you down. 

All the while Why Do I Worry is one of LeBlanc’s most lyrically personal songs to date.  “Sometimes I waste my days just thinking” Leblanc says. “We all worry about the things that we can’t control.”
