Having recently opened for Ben and Noel Haggard two years in a row during their Canadian tours, as well as Canadian “Hall of Famer” Carroll Baker, Jodie Leslie has been honored that her music, with it’s refreshing sound, has been embraced by a vast array of music audiences, in all age demographics.
A five foot, farm-raised gal who holds dear to great grandmother’s china - Jodie writes conversations put to music that show respect for that which is vintage. With a powerhouse voice, her sound seems to color outside the lines - having opened doors to her in the pop/rock world as well. She has shared the stage with mentors Bryan Adams, Gino Vannelli, Juice Newton, performed at the Canadian Grey Cup, the Bluebird Cafe, the Canadian Finals Rodeo, and has also opened for her country recording artist mentors George Canyon, Michelle Wright, and Grand ‘Ol Opry’s Bill Anderson (Whisperin’ Bill) several times.
The diversity in acceptance of Jodie Leslie’s voice and music seems to point to the fact that fans both young and old - mainstream and country - seem to gravitate to the positive messages in her work.
Jodie’s music has also found its home in film in television now, her latest album “Born For The Unknown”, features Grammy winner Phil Madeira, along with friends Bruce Bouton, Todd Robbins, & The Nashville String Machine.
