Who is this person?
Leslie's music is a blend of retro folk rock, blues, global sounds, and Americana. Her poetical street-wise lyrics explore themes of human courage, spiritual enlightenment, timeless love, and just plain doing whatever it takes.
A multi-instrumentalist, she accompanies herself on guitar and occasionally salts her show with fiddle and mandolin tunes. Her clear, expressive, soulful voice can cast a spell on an entire room.
Leslie has performed professionally since 1972 and as a solo artist since 1990. She produced an hosted the original unplugged cable series “Northwest Tunesmith” in the 1980s.
"Great job on your CD. I had no idea you were this good! So nice, really. Well produced and great songs!"
- Alice Stuart
"Her music has an ethereal retro 1960s folk sound and her voice is like a cross between the early Grace Slick and Loreena McKennit."
-Marty Reimer, DJ at the Mountain FM
"Kind of a retro-rock, folk and something else. A talent that's well worth watching."
- Nick Ehrlich, Victory Music Review
"The first time I heard her at the Victory Open Mic, I new I wanted her on my radio show."
-Marianne Bundren, KBCS 91.3 FM
