Album Notes
Leslie Rohonczy is a Canadian composer, recording artist, and vocal & performance coach, with professional experience in a wide range of musical styles.

In Fall 2016, Leslie releases "Qualia", her third album with guitarist, co-producer and musical partner Scott Walsh, owner of Soundcreation Studio in Ottawa Canada.

In October 2014, Leslie released her second album, "Down From the Ether", also recorded with Walsh, and the two formed the LESLIE ROHONCZY BAND (with bassist Dave Fraser, keyboard player Al Wilmore, and drummer Chris Houle).

In 2012, Leslie released her debut album "Sister Seven", a varied collection of original songs.

Leslie brings her passion for songwriting and powerful alto vocals to the stage with depth and range, and her artistic goal is simple: to engage the listener, and tell compelling stories through songs that really connect with her audience.

Leslie has performed many musical genres: Rock, Swing, R&B, Pop, Roots Rock, Power Blues and Jazz Standards. She currently fronts several popular Ottawa groups: 'LESLIE ROHONCZY Band', 'COUGAR Chick Tribute Band', 'CHIC Showband', and 'THREE TIMES LUCKY'. In the '80's, Leslie was a fronting member of popular bands "8 To The Bar!" and "Girls Like Us", and performed during the '90s and early '00s with "The Runes" and "Moondogs".

Leslie has twelve years of Royal Conservatory training in piano and music theory, has played the baritone saxophone and flute, is a certified Integral Coach™ specializing in performance & vocal coaching, professional voice-over artist and studio vocalist.


"Rock opera? Those are the words that formed in the vast emptiness between my ears as the neon lit Leslie Rohonczy fired up her pickup truck and towed her album "Down From The Ether" out of the mud of obscurity. You can't regard these songs as components of something as mundane as an ordinary rock album. There's too much theatrical seasoning sharing the soundstage with those muscular riffs for that and Ms. Rohonczy is so far from shy in her approach as to make a spotlight almost obligatory. I keep thinking of the arthouse excesses of Ann Magnuson as a sort of baseline but, as the acerbic "Reality" ably demonstrates, this is not the music of the land of canapes and champagne cocktails but that of the land of beer and burgers. Saturday night's alright for more than texting, it would seem. Despite having her feet firmly planted on blue collar ground, the sky seems to be no limit for Ms. Rohonczy with "Goodbye Moment" soaring straight over the horizon into big ballad territory with just enough devotional intent to counteract any excessive sentimentality whilst giving Scott Walsh the opportunity to build that bridge with his guitar. I can see this album becoming a stage show. I really can. I would even buy a ticket (although I would, of course, be on the guest list)."

"Leslie Rohonczy is a Canadian songwriter, vocalist and performance Coach. Along with her four-piece band of amazingly talented musicians, they create and perform a diverse and compelling catalog of original rock, country and funk music. Rohonczy's second album Down From the Ether was released in October 2014. Watch this cool visual for her single "Creativity"."

"Creativity by Leslie Rohonczy: Good things can come out of Canada and Leslie Rohonczy is one of them. Her song "Creativity" exorcises the ghost of pretentious eighties American rock and then stomps all over it in the name of ironic parody. Make it so!"

"It is refreshing to hear music that is not so easy to put in a box - Leslie has put together an album here with an eclectic mix of sounds cutting across rock, country, pop and even ethereal with influences from multiple decades. The lyrics cut across as thought-provoking and draw the listener in. So much better than the predictable mush heard on most tracks today. Leslie's voice is warm and inviting - easy to listen to, never harsh but at the same time evocative and expressive. The musicality is extravagant and unafraid to push the edges. Particular stand outs to me are Divavoom - so well sung and performed, it would be good to see that live - and Reality - has elements reminiscent of Traffic - a daring and creative track. And then Leslie pulls it all back to a song called Goodbye moment - anthemic and big. Overall this is a stand out album worthy of space on anyone's hard drive."
- Jeff Purchon, CEO & Founder, Gig-FX, Boston MA (Jan.2015)

"I love your new CD ('Down From the Ether' - 2014)... It's a pretty amazing album, and much like your first one, it's very diverse. The songs are diverse in their arrangements... It's very cool, every song. A fantastic CD. I'm still playing the first five tracks off your first CD ('Sister Seven' - 2012), and I get a good response too."
- tic, CKCU-FM 93.1, Ottawa Canada (Nov.2014)

"Leslie Rohonczy is a force to be reckoned with! 'Down From the Ether' is a rock and roll ride and Leslie's vocals are right up there with the best!"
- Sandy Sharkey, Boom-FM 99.7, Ottawa Canada (Nov.2014)

"Once you hear Leslie Rohonczy's new album, you will truly understand everything the words "talent, power and class" stand for. She possesses an unmistakable sound that will haunt your senses. Enjoy the ride."
- Dylan Black, Radio Professional (October, 2014)

"Leslie Rohonczy and her rock solid band took us all on a journey through some wonderfully refreshing original material this past Saturday night at Greenfield's. Well put together songs offered flavours of rock, pop, and blues, with a variety of catchy rhythms, tribal beats, great melodies, and exotic modes. The lyrics were thoughtfully written on topics of human nature, life situations, family and friends, self-empowerment, and the female mystique... all delivered with passion and soul that resonated throughout Leslie's pure and powerful voice. Fabulous keyboard work by Allan Wilmore, great bottom groove and rhythms by Steven Rae (bass) and Chris Houle (drums), and killer guitar/vocals by Scott Walsh, were tight and polished. All exuded a positive and lively vibe onstage, which was passed onto the audience. In short, The Leslie Rohonczy Band gave an admirable and entertaining performance, with music that offered an array of character and texture. I was captivated from start to finish!"
- Terry Steeves, Music Blogger (October 2014)
