EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, someone comes along and breaks the mold. In this case, it''s a young man named Lesli. With a truly original voice and expression, he leaves no stone unturned with his versatile performances.
Singer and songwriter Lesli was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1979. He grew up in a middle to upperclass suburb of the capitol city. Early on it became evident to his parents, his father being a musician himself, that Lesli had unique musical gifts and philosophical ideas.
While being a primarily selftaught singer and guitarist, Lesli spent his young years as a frontman in various progressive metal bands. In June of 1995 he caught the live act of the late Jeff Buckley in Roskilde, Denmark. That liveshow had a significant impact on Leslis vision as a performer and songwriter. After highschool Lesli toured worldwide as a session guitarplayer for various Swedish acts. In 2002 he quit that job, swapped his electric guitar for an acoustic, and hasn''t looked back ever since...
Choosing a life in musical seclusion, proved to be the right thing for him to do. As a loner his songwriting flourished. Inspired musically by the deep and mysterious sound of the steelstring guitar, and lyrically by just about everything he could absorb, timeless music took shape. As an independent artist, Lesli began playing clubs and bars in the capitol city. It wasn''t long until rumours spread locally of his heartwrenching perfomances, and Lesli began building a small but dedicated fanbase. Since then, Lesli has performed extensively in Sweden and Europe. He hopes to tour more in Europe and the US next spring...
The debut album Summer winter & blood - The acoustic mini album is basically the recorded version of what Lesli sounds like live. While the focus here lies on Leslis voice and guitar, there''s also some brilliant string arrangements that really brings these extraordinary compositions to life...The album was originally released in Scandinavia in the summer of 2005 and is now distributed worldwide by https://www.tradebit.com . Nowadays, Lesli is a self-signed artist with his own label...Wildfire Mill.
”The combination of Leslis driven guitarplay and high-pitched voice brings Jeff Buckley to mind, but Lesli holds his own and feels more focused and powerful in his expression....even more grand and theatrical. ”
”An unusually mature and promising debut from a singer/songwriter that doesn’t sound like anything we’ve heard in recent years”
Magnus Sundell - https://www.tradebit.com
”It’s certainly a year for swedish singer/songwriters, among these we find Lesli who debuts with a mini-cd filled with breathtaking, beautiful songs. With a fantastic voice he sings, accompanied by stringarrangements as beautiful as the songs.”
