Interspersed at different intervals along the spectrum that is created by moving from sorrow to joy, you will find the songs of Lesley Barth.
Lesley recently appeared in two shows on Alive with Clive with her husband, Charles (Chuck) Ramsey.
To date, Lesley has released a single, Desire; an EP, Good Like This; and a full length album, Green Hearts.
On Alive with Clive, she performed the single, songs from her EP and album, and a new song, as follows:
In her 1st Show, her songs ranged from being about a relationship with a fellow named Andy that didn’t blossom, to a song about “Desire,” to being aware of painful memories that continue to linger in “Whiskey Room,” and an acknowledgment of a wonderful guy who was the “Best Thing!”
In her 2nd Show, she sang about unrequited young love in “Green Hearts,” about a lover who showed up too late in “Lover, You Came Too Late,” about living life when it’s really “Good Like This,” and about a relationship in which there is a lack of intimacy between the parties in “Can’t Do Both.”
As the daughter of an opera singer and an actress, Lesley grew up in Philadelphia in a very musical and creative household — studying classical piano; devouring Romantic poetry; and immersing herself in 60s/70s pop, rock and soul.
As a result, her early influences are clearly reflected in her poetically-enriching songs, in which elements from disco, folk, country, blues, and retro pop have been woven together by themes of longing, soul-searching, and young love.
Lesley has also been to the studios of Leesta Vall recently to record four takes of five of her songs to create 20 one-take-only vinyl records that, like paintings by great artists, are destined to appreciate in value over time as her stature grows.
One of those tracks is shown in the picture below between her EP, Good Like This, and her full length album, Green Hearts.
It’s Lesley’s beautiful voice, though, that is sure to have a mesmerizing effect on you the moment you begin to hear her sing.
