Album Notes
I was born in Texas during a blizzard. I spent the next 12 years in New Mexico until we moved to Oregon. At some point I found myself at South Plains College and joining various ensembles that began to rekindle my love for music...When I’m asked what “kind" of music do you sing?, I have to ask, “Why should I be left so limited? I love almost every style of music and I do so gratefully and humbly. I don’t think it’s fair that we should have to settle for one ‘label’ or a label at all, for that matter. Although the music that inspired me as a child inspires me still, I tend to draw mostlly from obscure story telling artists who pay careful attention to the words they are sharing with their listeners. Most of the time the music that accompanies it carries the words so descriptively that it changes the atmosphere around you. Temperatures rise, heart rates increase, then fall with the words and the rhythm, and within minutes you have taken a trip - traveled through the writers mind and yours. It’s a trip I seem to need daily as do so many others. Sometimes we need something to stir our minds and our souls out of stagnation even if only for a short time. I want to learn to create music like this with the help of my friends who inspire me. Today, I’m working on my own musical ideas, while continuing to sing the music I love.
I've been moving back and forth between different cities in Oregon and Texas for as long as I can remember. But the Lubbock area and West Texas music changed my view of music in so many ways. After several years of running into brick walls I started to lose my passion for performing. Around this time I met a playwright/songwriter, Andy Wilkinson, who restored my love for the art of story telling and it's beauty. I want to create a similar setting with my work. There is so much to say in a song and you don't even have to take your clothes off to get your message across. Imagine that.

Veronica Clevidence

Great music. Country-esque without the twang.
This cd is very nice to listen to - comforting but still just a bit off-center. The music is haunting in places, the lyrics were well-written, and the artist obviously cares a lot about her music. I highly recommend it (and have!)

Al Sammann

I listen to this CD over and over. I love it.
Great CD. This is one of my all time favorites. I know the next one will be as good and look forward to its release. Lesley's voice is wonderful and soothing.

Cassie Patzig

This album is original. it feels like a July sunset in Lubbock. Beautiful, relieving after a hot day, and almost magical. goes great with good friends and beer, big fires and the sunset!
