ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Description of cd:

Leisa Way delivers the songs of Patsy Cline with a pure heart and sensational vocals. Her strong, full, honest voice will thrill any fan.
***
"Leisa Way's portrayal of Patsy Cline must be unprecedented. I'm willing to bet that no one has come as close as Way in emulating the essence, the voice and the passion of the country music legend. A very difficult repertoire to master -- with Cline's trademark deep voice and the ability to hit those low guttural notes-- but Way causes shivers with her grandiose voice." (Banner Review, 2005)
**
"Leisa Way's brilliant portrayal of this unforgettable country music icon, has to be her greatest triumph, to date". (Country Music Jukebox, Germany)
**
"A Canadian singer with a beautiful voice...an artist of grand talent" (Radio Lyon, France)
***
There have been so many Patsy Cline Tributes acts throught the years...but this one by Leisa Way is just different enough to stand out above most of the others. Leisa Way delivers these Patsy Cline standards with lots of pizzazz and passion; and while it is difficult for anyone to bring something new to the plate on these time-tested nuggets, Way's strong vocals keep you interested from start to finish. Just when you think you didn't need to hear another female voice singing, Sweet Dreams, Walkin' After Midnight and Crazy, Leisa Way manages to change your mind."
review by Larry Delaney, Country Music News, Sept, 2006
**
After enjoying a career in musical theatre that has taken her to over 50 countries in the world, Leisa was thrilled to return to her roots of country music when she portrayed Patsy Cline in Dean Regan's stage musical, "A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline".

As a result of overwhelming audience response, Leisa and her spectacular band,(Michael Mulrooney, Bruce Ley, Bob Hewus and Dave Wilson), went into the studio to recapture the magic of that live performance. The result is this marvellous cd, "Sweet Dreams: the songs of Patsy Cline".

Spurred on by fans, Leisa put together a phenomenal tribute to Patsy Cline which she and her band began touring in the fall of 2007. They are now booking into spring of 2010. Watch for it at a concert hall near you!

A native of Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, better known as the former nickel mining capital of the world, Leisa comes from a very musical family and was raised on country music. Her folks loved all kinds of music, and Leisa's first "concerts" were on the way up to the family camp. She'd stand between the seats of Dad's old truck while they yelled out song titles - and Leisa would belt out tunes for the whole trip up to camp. She started singing at events when she was 9 years old, and at age 12 sang for Queen Elizabeth. Since then, she has performed for every member of the Britain's Royal Family, excluding the young princes! She also was privileged to sing for the Kennedy Family, and at a private dinner for Terry Fox.

Leisa took her first professional acting role in 1981, and since then has performed in over 100 professional productions, both plays and musicals. In Canada, she is perhaps best known for her starring role as Anne of Green Gables, a role she played for six years at the Charlottetown Festival, including six tours to Japan and Canadian and U.S.A. tours, and over 1,000 performances.

Her 25-year career in theatre has taken her to countries and theatres all over the world, starring in such roles as "Peter Pan" in Peter Pan (both in Canada and the United States), as well as playing "Wendy" to Olympic Medalist Cathy Rigby's Peter Pan (U.S.A. Tour), Polly in Crazy For You (South American tour); Peggy in 42nd Street (Ntl Tour); Magnolia in ShowBoat; Billie Dawn (the Judy Holiday role) in Born Yesterday; The Woman in Dave Carley's Test Drive; Guenevere in Camelot; Maria in The Sound of Music; Laurey in Oklahoma; Eileen in The Invisibility of Eileen; Sandy in Grease!; and the National Tour of I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change!

Leisa is a great fan of Canadian playwright Norm Foster and has starred in many of his plays, including The Long Weekend (in Bermuda and Canada), The Melville Boys, Race Day and six different productions of both "The Long Weekend" and "The Love List" at theatres across Canada.

Leisa has performed her one-woman Cabaret shows on various cruise lines including Silver Sea Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Regal Cruises and Japan's Venus Cruise Line (Star Cruises).

One of the greatest joys of travelling the world, is the wonderful people you meet. Leisa feels very blessed to have a career she loves so much, and to have made so many lasting and wonderful friendships, all over the world.

Leisa currently lives in Orangeville, Ontario, where her husband, David Nairn, has been the Artistic Director of Theatre Orangeville for the past 10 seasons. Theatre Orangeville is a beautifully restored Opera House only an hour from Toronto, that is gaining a fine reputation in Canada for producing the best of Canadian-only theatre, and giving actors, designers and playwrights a chance to continually develop new works. Something to be proud of!
