Arlee Leonard

These are two amazing performers!!
These blues folk are amazing, talented, and wonderful performers!! I've been on stage with them all of my life and it's always a joy! Who am I?, their daughter!! This CD is really lovely and includes a lot of their original material that were some of my favorite songs as a kid. I sing on this CD too! So, yeah, I'm biased! But I'm tellin' ya true! While you're here, check out my jazz CD at cdbaby.com/arleel - Peace and Love to you!
