Lesley Kernochan

Lesley Kernochan is an Americana singer/songwriter with occasional bursts of comedy, pop, rock, and jazzy mouth trumpet.  Within each song Lesley's versatile voice brings music to life that is "uniquely beautiful...[with] lively and sharp intelligence." [No Depression]

Lesley has an eclectic background as a saxophonist, contemporary classical composer, operatically trained coloratura, and musical saw player.  She has four albums of original music including the a cappella creation "Undulating", her indie folk/rock sensation "The Pickle Jar", the surprise twist children's book and album "A Day in the Life of a Boogaleeboo", and her Americana country/folk record "A Calm Sun".

And now, here comes Lesley's fifth album, "The Hummingbird Revolution"!  Inspired partly by Thich Nhat Hanh's book "Love Letter to the Earth", this music is it's own homage to nature. The songs travel through many different experiences of gratitude born in the mud, or the desert, or on the banks of a joyful creek.  This record was created by the same incredible team from "A Calm Sun", with it's own particular mission to embrace a more full-spectrum, intuitive sound.
