Miss Leslie / Press

"Houston isn't exactly honky-tonk heaven, but the sorrowful lyrics and steely solos of fiddle-playing frontwoman Miss Leslie and her band will have you thinking otherwise. Leslie's gift for turning pain (she's a recent divorcee) into country gold marks her as a kindred spirit to fellow heartbroken Southeast Texan George Jones. For proof, check out the recent Between the Whiskey and the Wine."

Chris Gray - SPIN Magazine

"There's more: There are two women making records in Texas who are absolutely essential listening if you love real country music. Their names are Brennen Leigh and Miss Leslie, and they both blew me away. Awarding such a delightful group isn't easy. I'm splitting the DisCovery Award up among Miss Leslie, Minnie Murphy and Brennen Leigh . . . —Holy mackerel! Miss Leslie is a barroom chanteuse from the old school. The title tune to her CD finds her bluesy ballad belting in a smoky atmosphere swirling with steel guitar. The album is a revelation. This gal is walking in the high heels of Dottie West and Patsy Cline."

"For those who figure the best beerjoint tunes centre on depression, heartache and sorrow, Miss Leslie is their perfect musical guide. Every one of her 13 original, three chord country songs here mirrors a world of hard drinking, divorce and broken down love - though the lady does seem to be having a never-ending ball in the peppy Honky Tonk Hangover. . . Definitely recommended - and could someone please look into getting Miss Leslie and the band over to the UK? Chris Jackson, perhaps?"
