Leslie and Steve are a Rochester music staple, as writers, performers, and founders of Old Time Music night at Greece Baptist Church, where local artists have performed over the last ten years.
They came to to Rochester from the Boston area where together they ran The Mozaic Room coffeehouse for eleven years. In 2003, they started recording and performing together as a duo. Their music combines their backgrounds in traditional, country, Americana, and gospel music with their taste for contemporary singer/songwriters. Their performances feature simple but tasteful arrangements of timeless melodies. Steve's guitar is often supplemented by other traditional instruments, but the focus is always on thoughtful lyrics and beautiful harmonies.
When Steve and Leslie return to New England, they are sometimes accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Seth Connelly, who also produced their five albums together. In New York, they sometimes perform with some of our favorite musicial friends, Perry Cleaveland, and Joe Dady.
Old songs with old friends, is a welcome respite from a formidable Finger Lakes February, and we bet a bunch of you Trackers concur.
