Americana starlet Leslie Stevens opens for Sexton Friday

“Leslie Stevens and her ferociously named backing band play bewitching indie folk highlighted by Stevens’ clear, bell-like voice and spot-on country twang.”

– Los Angeles Times

Acclaimed Nashville, Tenn., record label Thirty Tigers have re-released Americana starlet Leslie Stevens and The Badgers’ latest album, “Roomful of Smoke.” Stevens will hit the road in support of “Roomful of Smoke,” opening for singer/songwriter Martin Sexton.

“Roomful of Smoke” is a glittering showcase for Leslie Stevens’s pitch-perfect, honeyed croon, a lighter-than-air twang that channels Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Neko Case in the same understated breath.

Produced by legendary studio maven David Bianco (Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Teenage Fanclub), “Roomful of Smoke” merges Leslie’s sultry vocals and poignant lyrics with the unhurried polish of The Badgers, a crack team of musicians with studio chops and record collections to match, a versatile set of musicians equally at home with Western Swing, Texas two-step and dialed-down LA folk rock.
