Lesley began singing in folk clubs at the age of fifteen. She spent her formative years touring with rock and pop bands across Europe, toured theatres across the country starring in ‘A Musical Tribute to Eva Cassidy’ but turned to song writing in 2000 releasing her debut album "Shock Delayed" in 2003. She then released "Naked" in 2012. She released ‘Looking for the Girl’ in 2015
She says –
"My first album of country rock music ‘Shock Delayed’ gave me the confidence to write, record and produce my own music. The second country rock album ‘Naked’ helped me focus on where I wanted to go with my music, and the final one in this trio of work ‘Looking For the Girl’ helped me hone my song writing skills.
In between these of course were my pioneering collaborative albums ‘Music Moves Within Me and ‘Soul Dreamer’ – please see my Spirit and Sound page for more information on those and where that work is taking me.
My latest solo album which will be released in the autumn 2017 is called ‘Natures Confetti’, which celebrates the beauty of our great planet. How would I describe it? I would call this one - folky! The fact is that this whole process has created a passion for song writing that I never knew existed and one that I cherish greatly.
Currently I am writing and performing with singer/songwriter Stuart Mcleod as part of ‘Oakleas Rise’ and we’re working on an album of our music right now. How to describe it? Acoustic! No boundaries please. You can check it out at www.oakleasrise.co.uk
