Event Details



“Gina Leslie sounds like what it feels like to have your head against the window of a Greyhound bus pulling away from a city where you and your sweetheart just broke up. And it’s raining.” – Guy at the bar

With a spellbinding voice and tender insightful songwriting, New Oleans-based Gina Leslie has established herself as a budding artist to watch with her February 11 release, No You’re Crying. Born into a musical family in Colorado, she spent the better part of her formative years barefoot at a bluegrass festivals, fiddle camps, and crowded family jams. After years of honing her voice as an artist and songwriter, Leslie now gives us No, You’re Crying, her debut solo release, recorded over the past two years of isolation. The songs came to life in the hot attic of a bright yellow house in New Orleans, and they capture a time and place of heartbreak and solitude. It’s everything a good breakup album should have– rootlessness and longing, an acceptance of life’s sadness, with a yearning to find happiness– but like anything worth its weight, more than the sum of its sorrows.
