"Rudely Interrupted" - Lorraine Leckie and Anthoony Haden-Guest at Pangea Lorraine Leckie is a New York based singer-songwriter. Lorraine Leckie grew up riding horses in Northern Ontario surrounded by the music of Neil Young. In the seventies she converted to punk rock, married Steve Leckie of the Viletones and started her career as a makeup artist in the fashion industry. After a decade living in Europe, she put down roots in New York and began working with celebrity clients such as Paul McCartney and Heidi Klum. It wasn't until the age of 37 that Leckie decided it was time for a change, got a guitar, and was soon performing all over the city playing venues such as Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall & Mercury Lounge. Lorraine's full-length album, Rudely Interrupted (2012), is a collaborative project inspired by the verses of legendary bon vivant/journalist/poet Anthony Haden-Guest. Haden-Guest is known for his contributions to Esquire, GQ and Britain's Observer Magazine, and books such as The Last Party: Studio 54, offered his latest collection of cartoons and poems, In The Mean Time, as the inspiration for Rudely Interrupted.
