ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lorraine Leckie is a no-nonsense singer/songwriter whose music combines honest, heartfelt poetry with beautiful, simple melodies, all performed with an attitude that's hard as nails and barely concealing of an aching vulnerability just below the surface.

A native of Whitby, Ontario, Canada, Lorraine grew up surrounded by the music of Neil Young and Hank Williams, both of whom she claims as strong influences. Gifted with a flair for words, she began to write poetry at a young age and was eventually drawn to make music when more and more people suggested she turn her poems into songs.

Before turning her heart over completely to music, however, Lorraine's artistic side and her desire to see the world drew her to the field of fashion. She became a makeup artist and worked in the fashion industry while living abroad in cities such as Paris, Milan, Hamburg and Sydney, among others. Her life experiences in these environments inevitably have become part of the texture of her music.

Lorraine's most notable influences have come from the French poets Baudelaire, Rimbaud, and Verlaine. The particular romance of these poets combined with the lyrical quality of American folk music remain the ideal to which she continues to strive for in her own compositions.

Today, Lorraine and her band, Lorraine Leckie & Her Demons, perform regularly at venues in New York City's Lower East Side and in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, which Lorraine currently calls home. Her Demons, in order of arrival are Demon #1, Tracey Ann Blaser on violin; Demon #2, Paul Livornese on electric guitar; Demon #3, Paul Triff on drums; Demon #4, Melanie Way on bass; and Demon #5, The Legendary Buddy Cage on pedal steel!

Lorraine says she looks forward to nothing more in her musical future than to continue her nightly ritual of sitting at her kitchen table around midnight, enjoying a beer, and trying to solve another puzzle which might turn out to be a song...and to maybe someday play The Bowery Ballroom!

The Real Thing!
Lorraine Leckie's songs imbed themselves in your consciousness. I sometimes catch myself singing them under my breath while riding the subway and I'm glad!
