“Undulating” is a one-woman all vocal orchestra that mixes spelunking lyrics with unpredictable yet simply delicious melodies. Lesley Kernochan is an artist with inquiring depth and passion but also a delightful sense of humor and zaneyness. The structure of the album is a bit like going to have a sushi dinner - after a few mouth-watering all-vocal pieces Lesley cleans your palate with the pickled ginger of “Cockpit” (an operatic carnival song), or the full-blown mock-pop gem “Piece of Meat,” and then places your fresh ears back into the ocean of vocal harmonies.
Please enjoy, with or without sake!
"Filled with unending smile-inducing brilliance! This cd is the best surprise of the year so far. There are moments here where Lesley is simply unbelievable...and she was already amazing before she took the sax out of her mouth!" - Daniel Flessas, KBOO 90.7FM Portland, OR
“I think this is an incredibly bold and creative album. It reminds me of Outkast’s transcendence of genre and one media article which described them as ‘funkdefragelistic.’ ” - Bryan Cooley, Event Coordinator for the David Lynch Foundation, Portland, OR.
"More people should really hear what Lesley Kernochan has done on "Undulating." Another brave musical voice...good job!” – Mary Burlingame, KMHD Radio 89.1FM Portland, OR
