The first single from ‘The British Sessions’ which entered the iTunes country chart at number 2.

With his roots in Aberdeen, Washington, Leroy Virgil adopted Reno, Nevada as his home and the base for Hellbound Glory back in the early 2000’s. The americana/roots rock artist cites his influences as Hank Williams, Nirvana and Hank Williams Jr, and his songs are influenced by the Reno nightlife, the women he has met and the fights he has gotten into.

A new direction sees Leroy and his faithful sidekick Chuck Bradley venture across the pond to bring Scumbag Country to where some of its roots were firmly planted in English and Irish folk music. Travelling around London, playing a few shows and then basing themselves in the North of the country, in the historic city of York, the duo got to work with UK music producers Paul Gorry and George Shilling to incorporate British and Irish folk instruments into their own brand of outlaw country, following in the footsteps of the likes of Simon & Garfunkel and Bob Dylan to change their sound.
