about

Leb (Caleb Weisnicht) is a multi-disciplinary graphic artist by trade, easily moving between a range of artistic disciplines. Leb, the disarmingly masterful first album of Caleb Wiesnicht, grabs hold with skilled chorales of layered harmony vocals, raw acoustic guitars, collages of cut up found audio, punchy percussion, unexpected song structures, and enigmatically poetic lyrics. Stories, fragments, images of his childhood growing up under the grim shadow of 9/11, a latchkey kid often left to his own devices in rural Waupun, Wisconsin, the home of the state’s maximum security prison. Many of the songs are like dreams, Leb says, because he did a lot of dreaming to occupy his time.
