"The best thing about being broke is there's nothing left to steal," sings Sue Leonard in her hit "Nickel", a suprisingly upbeat song about the frills of poverty. Sarcasm aside, Leonard is a superior jazz/R&B singer. All of her music, not just "Nickel", has been constructed around strong, stirring lyrics mixed with an impressive band. Occassionaly, like in "Without You", listeners are treated tp a great guitar lick too. After sampling just a few tracks one discovers Sue Leonard is pretty awesome. As evidence, you could cite her performances on late night shows including Letterman and Leno, she's even played the Grammys. Each track though, is true proof that Sue Leonard is extraordinary. Her ability to combine multiple genres in a single track is sublime. Take "Without You" and I Believe". Both are fervent and contemporary renditions of the blues mixed with subtle cues of pop, R&B, and jazz. In every song Leonard evokes her passion for music. "Music is the highest form of communication.

"Latest release "I Will Never Stop Loving You" left me amazed! It was like stepping back into the 60's, re-living the early 70's and travelling into the future all at the same time. Why the 60's? - This song is masterfully crafted, just like in the "good old days"..... no digital tricks, no auto-tune, no samples, no production mumbo jumbo...... just compelling lyrics over honest, tight chord changes, sung by a warm, sometimes sultry, sometimes gritty, completely "from the heart" Sue Leonard. Why the 70's? - Listen carefully..... can you hear George Harrison playing in the background? Does it have a sprinkle of the Travelling Wilbury's? Is it touched by the spirit of Roy Orbison? This song is definitely an uncanny combination of superb musical textures and vocal expertise. Why the future? - Listen very carefully. This is not an over-produced, short-lived pop song desitnied for the "Musical Dribble Recycle Bin". It is truly unique, because it has the potential to be a classic."
