Artist Bio

Influences:   Life, love & loss; strong women even when they're broken; piano players and rockers; cemeteries and crows.

My 8th FAWM.

Life is changing - really changing - and I'm changing with it.

New projects on the way, new collaborators, new songs and outlets, new perspectives, new sounds.

Old friends, powerful experiences, life's lessons, all coming with me.

And one hell of a massive tour. Stay tuned.

Update: I so very much wish I could have kept FAWMing this month, but today (the last day of February) I am leaving my house, my marriage, my city and my old life behind.

The songs are here in my head, I just haven't had the time to sit down and work them out. I'm sorry to have missed the opportunity to collaborate and keep up with you all here while you're all raring to go. I've had to put it on hold while I sort out everything else.

<3 you all

    I assume you have a dozen or so brewing... πŸ˜€

    Bring some of them into the night!
    Where upon them, the crows can alight.
    Unless songs are still steeping,
    Our possibly sleeping?
    In songbeds, ebony and white.

    Per an earlier comment of yours, consider sending me some lyrics before I hear your version and I'll happily ruin a version of my own. As best I can. With a lot of pointless harmonies and talky singing, probably. And mouth trumpets.

  • @russiasaturn  Feb 2017

    I just came upon you from your collab on Scarlet Oak, and wow! loved your lyrics, voice, delivery...looking forward to more from you

  • @sarahk Feb 2017

    No worries on collaborating this week! Take it easy. I've got other things I can focus on, and another Canuck volunteered to work on the piece I had in mind. We'll do another when you have time.

  • @tfish77  Feb 2017

    Yes, totally cool, thank you! Good luck packing.

  • @kristian  Feb 2017

  • @eringoblog Feb 2017

    Hey Leslie...no worries on the collab. Whenever you get to it is totally fine! <3

  • @tfish77  Feb 2017

    Hi again! Got anything in the hopper that you'd like to collab on? I came up dry yesterday but I think I know what you mean about subtle lyrics and I'd love to work on something with you.

  • @sarahk Feb 2017

    Any chance you'd take a look at a French google translate of a lyric I wrote, and/or help me outline a melody?

  • @eringoblog Feb 2017

    Hey Leslie...I emailed you some lyrics. As I said there, I won't feel bad at all if you want to pass. πŸ˜€

  • @meriamber  Feb 2017

    Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my song 😁 I actually did quite a bit of research into the original Grimm Brothers stories because I hadn't known them prior to deciding to embark on writing an EP based on them!!

    Your work sounds super interesting though! I've got to listen to more of it (beyond which, your voice is AMAZING).

  • @sarahk Feb 2017

    Thanks Leslie! I love the idea of songs we can sing when you're here! Let's see what comes out of this thing . . .

  • @tawny249  Feb 2017

    Lol...I suppose you are correct about the polishing bit. God knows that if I get a voice recording up, it will be sub-par...

  • @tfish77  Feb 2017

    "Evergreen" is gorgeous! πŸ˜€

    Ice cream flavors, eh? Tell you what, if you have something in mind, lay down whatever's in your head and I'll add to it. If not, I'll try to come up with something. I'm willing to take a chance on this ice cream thing...

  • @tfish77  Feb 2017

    Haha! I'd love to hear this christmas album! I've always wanted to make one myself. OK, subversion... how about "You're Doing Great," a song about all the great decisions world leaders are making, with perhaps a hint of sarcasm.

  • @tfish77  Feb 2017

  • @tfish77  Feb 2017

    Hi! YES I'd love to collab! My themes this year are "christmas" and "protest." That spark anything?

  • @johncrossman  Feb 2017

    Yes? It shall be made to happen.

  • @jendistad  Feb 2017

    Have a great FAWM, Leslie! (=

  • @zecoop  Feb 2017

    Yea... I *meant* to leave more of those bass fills open... because there are some sweet ones, if I do say so myself. However, I got a little frantic playing the drums, trying not to mess up. When I re-do them, I will be leaving a few more openings. πŸ˜€

  • @johncrossman  Feb 2017

    Ack! I mean, yeah, that's cool, sure, ahem...

    What's this promise of a world tour?

  • @sarahk Feb 2017

    It's FAWM and I'm back. Can't wait to see what you have cooking!!! Let's do this thing.

    I'm so excited to hear what you come up with this year!! I still listen to that I Am Athena song you wrote (last year? year before??) because it's so dang brilliant. And let's keep talking about summer!! πŸ˜€ HAPPY FAWM

  • @negasi  Jan 2017
