words and music
from the north woods
She took a trip down the road less travelled, and turned it into song -from the Alberta prairie, to the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, to touring North America with her own band or opening for the likes of Jane Siberry, Mary Gauthier and Harry Manx. Here you can check out reviews and stream music from Leslie's own acclaimed independent releases, compilation tracks and covers of her songs as recorded by other artists.
"A strong vocalist . . .
she takes each word, each phrase, and inhabits it . . . loving one moment, scary the next and never does one feel they aren’t hearing the singer’s true self."
“Leslie Alexander didn’t just share her music with us . . . she shared her soul. Accompanied by the Wild Rose Hippies including John Ellis on acoustic guitar, banjo, & pedal steel, & Rob Becker on upright bass, she captured the audience & took us with her on her journey thus far . . . “
NORTH ISLAND GAZETTE
"I was blown away. This level of raw honesty and integrity are so rare that it is disarming. Her voice is as clear as a pure mountain stream and as sultry as a moist Eastern summer night. This little planet we call home is a better place with Leslie making music that "grounds" us all."
