“Lessard has analyzed acts coming through the Red Door, mindful of what makes one musician's show more impressive then an equally talented one. Simple answer — stage presence and showmanship. "In this day and age there are a lot of people playing guitar and writing their own songs, and they play and write very well. So you need something to set yourself apart. ...; You have to have great songs, but if it's dead between them? It's easy to lose people." ”
“There are few artistic mediums into which Dover resident Jonathan Frazer Lessard has not dipped his toes. He’s a musician, recently of indie rock band Ellen Page and now a solo performer at work on his first album. He’s a stand-up comedian who once served as a bouncer at famed New York club “Comic Strip Live.” He’s done grip and lighting work on films, including “The Minis,” starring Dennis Rodman as the coach of a dwarf basketball team. He’s acted in local theatric productions like “An Evening of Apocalyptic Theatre” at The Players’ Ring. He’s also a writer, visual artist, and booker of concerts at The Red Door in Portsmouth. ”
