ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Nationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Leslie DiNicola has a rare gift for the sonic snapshot—through the poetic accessibility of her writing style she captures personal moments with a universal perspective.

“I want to share my experiences in song so that others can see their lives mirrored and pass through the door of whatever is troubling them or holding them back,” the NYC-based artist explains. Each of Leslie’s releases is a photo journal, a collection of “in the moment,” unposed music portraits that reveal the core of herself and her artistry. Her latest, the EP Wake Up, is her most well composed and elegantly revealing body of work.

LESLIE HAS BEEN FREQUENTLY DESCRIBED AS
“COMBINING THE GRITTINESS OF JANIS JOPLIN WITH THE VULNERABILITY OF ALISON KRAUSS.”

It’s a potent sensibility that has endeared her to critics, fans, other established artists, and industry vets. Things To Do, See & Eat in NYC succinctly enthuses: “This girl is going places.” October Project’s Julie Flanders says: “DiNicola pours her full soul and tremendous heart into songs you will recognize for their mysterious way of telling your secret story with her powerful voice.” Leslie has worked with such respected music biz names as Ron Allaire (Keith Richards, Madonna, David Bowie, Shakira), Julian Coryell (Aimee Mann, Leonard Cohen, Jewel, Alanis Morisette), Erich Gobel (John Mayer, Ray Charles), Mark Schulman (P!nk, Cher, Foreigner), and Ellis Traver (Diane Birch, Fischerspooner, Sean Lennon, and Mark Ronson).

AS A LIVE PERFORMER, HER COMMANDING VOCALS AND SMOLDERING STAGE PRESENCE HAVE ENABLED HER TO SELL OUT SOLO SHOWS AND HOLD HER OWN ALONGSIDE RENOWNED ARTISTS LIKE BRIAN WILSON, JOHN WAITE, JEFFREY GAINES, FREEDY JOHNSTON, AMERICAN IDOL WINNER: LEE DEWYZE, HOWIE DAY, ANNA NALICK, TYLER HILTON, JAYMAY AND OCTOBER PROJECT.

Leslie is also a highly in-demand artist singing the “National Anthem” at major league sporting events across the country.

“When I look back at the work I’ve done, it’s like going through scrapbooks,” Leslie says thoughtfully. “Each song is like a photograph of the person I was in a particular moment. It tells a story that my soul needed to tell. I hope these songs comfort people and give them an inherent sense of hope against life’s sorrow… because that’s why I listen to music. And that’s why I write music.”
