Funny storytelling folk.memorable melodies, rhyming lyrics, odd characters, unexpected lasciviousness. Some of the songs might get stuck in your head and keep you giggling, and others might remind you of the thoughts and feelings you forgot to notice.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lesley Littlefield’s CD/DVD "Little Songs Unabridged" features a collection of lyrical, frolicsome, and sometimes lascivious songs on topics ranging from farming and animals to geologists and even to oranginess and underwear.

In addition to photos and outtakes, the accompanying DVD features Lesley's three music videos, including the "Bug Song" video (as seen in Taggart Siegel's award-winning documentary film, The Real Dirt On Farmer John), and the quirkily sexy "Four More Times" video.

After several years living between Russia and Mexico, Lesley now resides in San Francisco where she continues to write and perform her music while working with Angelic Organics farm, managing creative farm projects.



REVIEWS

"In her genre-bending CD/DVD debut Little Songs and Little Songs Unabridged, Lesley Littlefield masterfully paints wise and witty portraits for both tykes and sages alike using her pallet of colorful lyrics, vocal quality of a gentle breeze, and acoustic instrumentation including folk guitar, sweet pennywhistle, haunting violin, and juke-joint oud. Quirky caricatures unfold while this sprite of a song-smith pays homage to 17th-century folk ballads and at times even evokes the musical styles of Patsy Cline and Joni Mitchell. Littlefield leaves this fly on the wall buzzing "Bravo! Bravo!""
~ Lobo, journalist, Nashville, TN ~

"Littlefield is an inventive storyteller who distills her experiences down to their essence, setting them amidst enchanting melodies and instrumentation. When listening to her songs, one might think musical theater, or folk, or "Wow, what is this?" It’s the songwriter herself, and her very unique way of seeing the world."
~ Emogene Truffaut, writer, New York ~

"Lesley Littlefield's songs and videos are little scripts peopled with actors who play specific roles and have their distinct personalities. Her matchless perspective on life is accompanied by a sense of humor and disarming innocence. Her vignettes are musical snapshots, conjuring unique, miniature worlds that create a lasting impression. You never know what image or sound is going to confront and surprise you around the next bend."
~ Tim Hazell, multimedia artist, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico ~



LISTENER COMMENTS

"You touch this heart with your voice. Just keep writing and singing, girl. You mesmerize, baby."
~ Tom Frazee, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

"I've been wandering around for the last two weeks with Lesley’s songs in my head, and just half an hour ago as I was walking into the library I was whistling the opening part to "The Bug Song." This CD is my new favorite!"
~C. Mom

"I love "The Bug Song" and "The Farmer John Song". It’s awesome how seriously environmental they are, but with such an innocent whimsical tone. Genius. I have never heard anything like it, and I listen to a lot of music. The closest thing I can compare it to is the joyousness of They Might Be Giants crossed with the seriousness of Suzanne Vega. They also have that singing/spoken word quality that Lesley does so well."
~ A. Strom, student, Cleveland
