Lakeland Alum Rocks Lloydminster
Mar 12, 2013
The Vic Juba Community Theater will be welcoming musician, Jodie Leslie to the stage this Thursday, March 14, from Lakeland College in Lloydminster.
Graduating in 1996, Jodie was enrolled in the Western Horsemanship program. Since then, she reined in her equine interests to actively pursue a full-scale music career.
Growing up on her family’s farm in Innisfree, Jodie’s first audience was of the four-legged assortment as she was constantly giving impromptu concerts in the barn. It wasn’t until her teenage years when Jodie realized the potential of her own vocal ability and began taking professional voice lessons.
Jodie has come a long way from her barn beginnings; she has begun to align herself in the Canadian music industry by sharing a stage with iconic Canuck rockers like Bryan Adams, Trooper, and Harlequin. Her own personal musical influences stem from a range of rock to contemporary pop, and her voice is described as having echoes of Jewel, Bonnie Rait, and even KD Lang.
Doing most of her writing and recording in Nashville, Jodie is in the midst of working on her third album, all while maintaining a constant touring schedule.
A powerhouse with a dynamic range, Jodie Leslie delivers soulful music that will resonate with the audience and leave them wanting more.
