Details: Raised in east Toronto, Denise Leslie comes from a music lover’s household. Leslie is formally trained in piano and she is also a devoted jazz vocalist with a soft spot for R’ n B and a penchant for some serious blues, swing and scat. Standards are a cherished staple of her performance repertoire but she also likes to inject new life into her set by experimenting with arrangements and incorporating tunes from more current artists such as Duffy, Amy Winehouse, and Sting. Demise Leslie recently completed a new CD called “You Don’t Know What Love is”
