Miss Leslie: The Music
This group describes their music as 'Country music with a hardwood floor sound'. Combining some original material along with obscure country tunes that they have unearthed from the 50s and 60s, the band opens up new sounds in a retro honky tonk setting.
Leslie Ann Sloan sings a gutsy, belting lead that has been compared to the likes of Patsy Cline, Leona Williams and Connie Smith. The band's stage show features a real upright piano, pedal steel guitar, fiddle, small drum kit and a twangy Telecaster reminiscent of the Don Rich sound.
While Miss Leslie & Her Juke-Jointers are a relatively new group on the scene, the band has played professionally with nationally touring acts. Randy Lindley, who plays electric guitar, has played and recorded with The Coleman Brothers, The Sullivan Family, Bill Grant and Delia Bell, Rebel Records' David Davis & the Warrior River Boys, and Rebel Records' Karl Shiflett and the Big Country Show.
Miss Leslie & Her Juke-Jointers have been nominated for Houston Press Music Awards in 2004 and 2005. In 2005, they were nominated for Best Original Band in the Houston Chronicle's Ultimate Houston Awards.
