Lesley Kernochan is an Americana folk singer/songwriter with prayerful lyrics and occasional bursts of jazzy mouth trumpet.  Within each song Lesley's versatile voice brings music to life that is "uniquely beautiful...[with] lively and sharp intelligence." [No Depression]

Lesley has an eclectic background as a saxophonist, contemporary classical composer, operatically trained coloratura, and musical saw player.  Currently she primarily performs on guitar, ukulele, and piano.  She has five albums of original music including the a cappella creation Undulating, her indie folk/rock sensation The Pickle Jar, the surprise twist children's book and album A Day in the Life of a Boogaleeboo, Americana country/folk record A Calm Sun, and the eclectic Americana album The Hummingbird Revolution.
