The Album Leaf officially began in 1998 as the solo project of Jimmy LaValle, guitarist for San Diego, California-based post-rock band Tristeza. LaValle has also performed in several other San Diego-area bands, including Swing Kids, The Locust, GoGoGo Airheart, and The Black Heart Procession as well as collaborating with Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós. The new Album Leaf album A Chorus of Storytellers, marks the first decade for the group. In those 10 years, LaValle has gone from initial improvised home recordings to now five complete studio albums, from opening slots to leading an incredible world-touring band to the stage at Red Rocks, headlining the Metamorphose festival in Japan and performing at the Hollywood Bowl with the Incredible String Band. LaValle’s well-earned reputation as a crafter of impeccable sonic imagery even led to a critically-acclaimed show at the Seattle International Film Festival where The Album Leaf performed a live score for the 1927 silent film Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans. On Sub Pop.

Jimmy LaValle is currently backed by:
Matthew Resovich - Violin, Keys, Vocals
James McAlister - Drums (has played for Sufjan Stevens, Ester Drang and David Bazan among others)
Brad Lee - Bass, Guitar, Keys & Trumpet
Gram LeBron - Bass, Keys, Guitar & Vocals
