“Her soft, clear voice remains the focal point, while her alt-country sound recalls the Laurel Canyon days of The Flying Burrito Brothers.” –NPR Music

“Stevens’ soaring voice…hits notes with the ease of Dolly Parton.” -Los Angeles Times

“Her voice is the stuff of country gold.” –Rolling Stone Country

“The 10-song Sinner runs the gamut from smoky barroom shufflers…to searing story songs.” –Wide Open Country

“Stevens sets herself apart with her soft, clear voice and an aura that hearkens back to the glory days of Laurel Canyon.” –Glide Magazine

LA-based singer-songwriter Leslie Stevens is debuting her new video “Teen Bride” via Ditty TV; watch/share HERE. Her new album Sinner is out now via Thirty Tigers; stream/purchase HERE.

Stevens is on the road now in support of Sinner, with shows coming up in New York City, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Portland and more. See below for a complete list of tour dates.

“I have always written songs to help me heal and to help me cry and laugh,” Stevens explains, “Many people don't like tears- they are afraid of pain- they want to walk away… When after I play someone says ‘You are the most vulnerable’ I consider it the biggest compliment. Still, it means cracking my heart open like an egg at every show.”

Sinner marks Stevens’ third full-length album, following The Donkey and the Rose and Roomful of Smoke, both of which led the Los Angeles Times to call her “one of the city’s best,” while LA Weekly named her Best Country Singer of 2018. Sinner is produced by acclaimed artist Jonathan Wilson (Dawes, Father John Misty) and features drummer James Gadson (Paul McCartney, B.B. King), bassist Jake Blanton (The Killers), pianist Keefus Ciancia (Elton John, T Bone Burnett), organist Nate Walcott (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bright Eyes) and guest vocals from Jenny O on the track “Sylvie.”

Stevens has recorded and toured with a wide variety of acclaimed musicians, including Florence + the Machine, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Father John Misty and Jenny O. Stevens also fronted folk-country band Leslie Stevens and the Badgers, and together the band released two LPs.
