"Lesley Young has no problem baring her soul for all to hear, and that honesty has led to new heights of success." Justin Skinner, The Mirror, Toronto, Canada.
September 29th, 2018 Canadian singer-songwriter Lesley Young released her newest single for streaming and downloads. A cover version of Suzanne Vega's song 'Predictions' (from Vega's 'Days of Open Hand' album), 'Predictions' beautifully showcases Young's acoustic guitar playing/vocals, and features her longtime partner/musical collaborator John McKay-Clements on electric lead guitar. An EP of Lesley Young's original songs is scheduled for release later this year. Her songs have been chosen as finalist (folk category) for the Song of the Year competition (USA), finalist (pop category) for the Songwriter's Universe competition (USA), 2nd place winner for 100% Music songwriting competition (France) and finalist (folk category) for the Great American Song Contest (USA). Her songwriting themes include passion and betrayal, psychological revelations, ecology, exotic animals, exotic tunings and lately completely unexpected twists are cropping up, so stay tuned!
