MEET JODIE LESLIE!

In Jodie's voice you will hear echoes of Bonnie Rait, Martina McBride, and Ann Wilson.  Her music has crossed over both pop/rock and country genres. Once described as a "Female Tom Petty",  Leslie has been honored to have shared the stage with Bryan Adams, Gino Vannelli, Juice Newton, Michelle Wright, John Conlee, Allanah Myles, Lee Aaron, Trooper, Harlequin, Prism, Honeymoon Suite, & Dr. Hook.  

She has toured performing originals in Europe, the US, & throughout Canada, and was chosen to represent Alberta at 2013 Grey Cup ceremonies in Toronto performing 6 shows with a collective of musical band mates under the name "The Lean Machine".

She has three albums released world wide on iTunes - debut album "Resonant Frequency" featuring the single "Daylight" (penned by Leslie) which is now on the soundtrack to US film "Refuge" starring Linda Hamilton distributed by Warner USA.  The second album "Little Things" features the single "Never Too Late", now used as the theme song for international company "From The Earth Naturally"(www.fromtheearthnaturally.com). Check out the You Tube interview about the story behind the song - Leslie's mother and her battle with cancer.

Single "Keep Your Memory Alive" is now being used by "Veterans Voices of Canada" (www.vetvoice.org).

Jodie has spent time in Nashville writing, while locally in Alberta, Canada she has performed with musicians such as Sandro Dominelli, Andrew Glover, Shane Painter, Marc Beaudin, Ryan Davidson (guitar player to Gord Bamford & featured guitar player on her second album "Little Things"), Richard Monkman, Matt Day and many more very talented souls.
