Agony of the Leaves
About Agony of the Leaves (Stephen Richardson)
Agony of the Leaves is the solo album project of Juno nominated (2021 MusiCounts Music Teacher of the Year award) Stephen Richardson, guitarist, and songwriter for the long-established (2007) Canadian indie Rock Band "3-Across-Dee-Eye". The latter of whom have released two albums: "3 Dinkie Pile-Up" & "| The | BOSS |"; both available on reverberation, iTunes, AmazingTunes, Spotify, Emusic, etc. Both bands have found success with tracks licensed to CBC TV, a syndicated (46 million American households) television cooking show (Wild Kitchen--Caroline Cox), a movie documentary by Mikey McBryan (Ice Pilots/Plane Savers) on the popularity of the EA Sports NHL '94 Sega videogame ("Pixelated Heroes" -- https://youtu.be/vAWtgjufIUs ), multiple international in-store radio licenses, and songs charting on National radio (East Coast Countdown).
Longtime Hollywood music supervisor Erin Dillon added the AOTL song White Clover to her buyer's "Heartbreak" themed playlist. This song will interest filmmakers in need of a conflicted acoustic song for projects needing elements of love, loss, mistakes, and regret. Recently, the acoustic version of the AOTL song Where's the Sleep? was nominated for Best New Single at the 2022 NWT Music Awards.
