Les July is an extremely unique self-contained recording artist / producer who sings, writes and plays several instruments. His new project, "Dreamland" is a 'double album on one CD'. It's a unique combination of great, catchy songs, intelligent, thought provoking lyrics, world class musicianship and great production. All coming from one person who has been known to exibit paranormal tendencies.
"Les July's Dreamland is a catchy and well-played set of crafty songs that make you think, dance and feel. And in this increasingly desensitized world, the ability to still feel anything at all cannot be taken for granted." - Paul Myers
(Author of " A Wizard A True Star -Todd Rundgren In The Studio ")
An endorsement from music visionary icon, Kate Bush has brought Les worldwide attention via youtube. His recordings that feature his trumpet playing has drawn many comparisons to Miles Davis. As a producer, his knowledge of multiple genres of music and his ability to 'mash them up', has led to work with artists of many different cultures.
While in Los Angeles, Les gave of his time by volunteering @ Cedar-Sinai Medical Center as a Music For Healing therapist and he has worked with top artists in every vein of contemporary music from Slash to k.d. Lang to Dr. Dre to Herbie Hancock. He produced a short form documentary “ On The Fly with Les July ”, that chronicles his eclectic life and career in Hollywood, Ca. and features everyone from Stevie Wonder to Adam Sandler. This documentary not only showcases Les’ wide ranging musical talents but his on-camera personality as well.
Les has recently moved back to NYC where his first gig was opening for Todd Rundgren to a sold out crowd at B.B Kings. With recognition in all genres of contemporary music, Les has managed to escape categorization as an artist, producer and musician.
