22 - Leslie Mendelson: Ez and Les on Life and Music
Leslie Mendelson’s on-going journey as an artist is a testament to her undeniable talent, perseverance, and mastery of her craft. She had a storied start to her career in the 2000’s with support of major label budgets and grammy award winning producers. This garnered critically acclaimed grammy nominated material of her own, but it also took her down a path where she dealt with disappointment, disillusionment, and death.
Over a decade later her career is thriving and she is just as comfortable in a singer/songwriter solo setting as she is performing alongside jam band luminaries like Steve Kimock or Bob Weir. Earlier this month (5/19) she opened up for the Who at Madison Square Garden and she is days away from meeting a kickstarter goal to fund her fully finished new record “If You Can’t Say Anything Nice”. As always, I had a blast chatting with Leslie and I think you will enjoy the fruit of our conversation.
