Lesley Kernochan is currently an Americana singer/songwriter with occasional bursts of comedy, swing, pop, and jazzy mouth trumpet.  Within each unique song Lesley's versatile voice brings music to life that is intelligent, achingly beautiful, and playfully surreal.  In Lesley's new album A Calm Sun [2017] she settles into a tender country/folk sound that "casts her in a place delicately between the soundscape of Kacey Musgraves and Norah Jones—studied and soft-spoken, yet rollicking. [PopMatters]." 

A Calm Sun features the talents of Dean Parks, Christopher Bruce, Jeff Babko, Dan Lutz, Aaron Sterling, Scott Jacoby, Emily Lazar, John Schimpf, and more.  It was recorded in Los Angeles at The Village and EastWest Studios. 

Lesley has an eclectic background as a saxophonist, contemporary composer, operatically trained coloratura, musical saw player, and now singer/songwriter. She has four albums of original music including the a cappella creation Undulating, her indie rock/pop/jazz sensation The Pickle Jar, the Parent's Choice Gold Award-winning children’s album A Day in the Life of a Boogaleeboo, and her most recent Americana record A Calm Sun.
