Leif Arneson is a Canadian musician hailing from Sidney, British Columbia best known for his indie folk project From Here To Sidney. He started playing the guitar at the age of nine, and over time began to write his own songs. Leif first started releasing music in 2013 under the name Leif Arnesto and in that time released a variety of demos and albums. His serious music career didn't begin until mid-2015, when he started a band with his younger sister called Lila. After unforeseen road blocks with the band, Leif abandoned this project in November 2015. After another year of playing in various bands, he then decided to begin recording and releasing music under the name From Here To Sidney. This eventually became his main project. Leif self recorded and released From Here To Sidney's debut EP "The Airliner" in December 2015, and it was remixed and remastered in early 2016 for a re-release on his label, Leafing Music (named Leafing Records at the time). After a year long hiatus, Leif returned to the project and recorded and released the eponymous sophomore EP "From Here To Sidney" in February 2017, followed by the debut full-length LP "Songs Of Lands End" in August that year which featured a music video and unreleased bonus live tracks. Leif then entered into Clouds Collapse Studios in Sidney to begin tracking his first professionally recorded album ever. After a tedious 8 months of recording, mixing and mastering, Leif released his second full-length LP with From Here To Sidney in July 2018, titled "Elevations". Since then, Leif has settled down and is currently working on promoting his music and playing live in his hometown of Sidney.
