There are at least four artists/bands, who are called "Leslie".
1st) Leslie, born February 4, 1985 in Le Mans (France) is a young R 'n B singer with French, Vietnamese and Polynesian origins, revealed by a show on the M6 channel "Graines de Star" (Seeds of Star). She works with the duet Koré & Skalp, of which one of the two members is her husband.
From 2004 until 2005, she gained enormous fame in France with her LPs "Je suis et je resterai" and "Mes couleurs" with the hitsingles "Sobri (Notre Destin)" with Amine and "Et J'Attends". In 2006, she released her first single of her third album called "L'envers de la terre".
2nd) Rising out of Charleston, SC, the city of dignity and grace, three musicians have come together to form the dynamic trio known as LESLIE. Combining raw energy and powerful musicianship, Sadler Vaden (vocals, guitar), Jason Fox (bass) and Jonathan Carman (drums) infuse rock, pop, and blues to create an honest, in-your-face rock n roll sound that is becoming all their own.
Formed in October of 2004, LESLIE spent the better part of 2005 recording their first E.P., touring, and building a fan base around the southeast. In 2006, LESLIE has already recorded a new collection of songs with Jake Sinclair (The Films), and has begun touring heavily as a part of their grassroots-style campaign to the top.
LESLIE draws influences from the likes of The Who, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, and Oasis. The influences have collaborated to form one solid three piece band that challenges the new wave rock of today. The band is currently on tour in support of their new collection of songs labeled "Bee St. Sessions".
3rd) The ever-incestuous Washington D.C. scene was the fertile ground that gave birth to Leslie--a one-off project boasting members of Shudder to Think, Jawbox, and Edsel. Avant-pop for the international set or tricked out rock-n-roll for our outerspace mailorder customers. Whichever it is, Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha offered to produce a full-length album for the trio, and whatever you think of him, we still think that was pretty cool. (Also available as part of Jade Tree’s retrospective CD, The First Five Years [JT1050])
4th) A Mexican indie rock band from Guadalajara city with a first album called "National Star". The band's name is spelled L E S L I E and is integrated by Kaiser, Oby, DaN and Alex. Their sounds are highly influenced by the 80's pop glam music.
