Leslie Tucker is one of those rare talents that seems destined to turn the music community on its ear. As a songwriter, she has started out where most end up if they're lucky. Her writing is beautifully crafted but never contrived. As a singer, her pure and unadorned vocals have been compared in warmth to Kate Wolf and in strength to Linda Ronstadt. Veterans of the business have been quick to praise her eminently likable style. Tim O'Brien has said: "I would pay to hear Leslie sing from the index of a computer manual."
