Awarded “Best Country Singer” in the LA Weekly’s 2018 Best Of, you can feel LESLIE STEVENS’ voice reach the nails in the doorframe. She spins a high craft, with songs about donkeys and drinking and driving in heaven— and just when you thought she might light your living room on fire with a giggle, she’ll blast you through the skylight into outer space. The LA Times calls her “one of the city’s best” and Chris Ziegler (LA Record) explains that Leslie has “the kind of voice you’ll realize you’ve been waiting to hear since forever.” She’s sung on records by Jim James, Father John Misty, Jonathan Wilson, and live with Joe Walsh, Jackson Browne, and John Fogerty, as well as other musicians not beginning with the letter “J.” Brave lyrically and vulnerable in spirit: Leslie never shies away from laying down what’s what, if only to leave a mark on the most golden part of your soul.
Despite the name, MATT THE ELECTRICIAN is no longer an electrician, focusing instead on a music career that has spanned the course of two decades, a dozen records, and thousands of shows.
“Matt is a modern equivalent to prime Loudon Wainwright III and John Gorka with the tale-spinning gifts of Spalding Gray rolled into a soft spoken, tattoo adorned package.” – Jambase
