In This Episode
Leslie Nuss is the thinking girl’s singer/songwriter who personifies the perfect balance of strength and femininity. After surviving a traumatic event, Leslie hit a turning point that’s reflected in her music, which floats between dream pop and pop rock. (If you like Amy Mann’s vibe, you’ll love Leslie!) Note: In this episode we discuss a random act of violence that may be disturbing or upsetting to some audience members. Thank you to Leslie for bravely sharing her story with us.
