In this world, there is always the path not taken and the path already cleared. Singer/Songwriter Lesley B., born Lesley Baptiste on April 26th, 1988 and raised in beautiful Miami, Fl has not only created for his self a unique path but a unique destination as well. With his dynamic vocals, distinct style, and exceptional lyrics, it’s no doubt that Lesley B. will be destined for greatness.
Lesley B. inspirations are Motown legend Smokey Robinson and chart topping singer/songwriter Ne-Yo. “I am moved by the stories Smokey Robinson and Ne-Yo are able to formulate through words in music and as a listener or reader you envision the story unfolding, you feel every beat that inspires each word and that is what I do” says Lesley. Lyrically transforming words into a vision, what Lesley likes to call it, and transferring that into whatever genre of music his mind allows him to express himself on. Rather it is Pop, Funk, or R&B, the story will be told.
At 9 years old Lesley B. made his first appearance on stage with a choir, but it was at age 10 that his life would change forever. Lesley B. was given the opportunity to perform solo at his first Talent Showcase where he electrified the crowd and took home the first place title. Thereafter, he segued into a Performing Arts Program for Music to sharpen his vocal ability and stage presents. The lessons he learned throughout the program opened up many exciting doors, such as appearing in Aventura Newspaper, South Florida’s entertainment network Deco Drive on WSVN, WBFS (My33), NBC nightly news, and appeared on season 1 of X-Factor (USA).
