Color of Sound

by Leslie Bowe

The soulful sounds of Leslie Bowe are a refreshing taste of current but retro soul-reminiscent of Sam Cooke, Donny Hathaway & others but with a modern day flavor. Great for listeners of deeply honest, message driven lyrics and powerful, soulful melodies.

Leslie's Story:

Award-winning recording artist Leslie Bowe’s debut single "Hallelujah" was released to Hot AC national radio. He has opened for Maxi Priest, Third World, The Wailers, UB 40 and, most recently, Patty Griffin.

Leslie was the Grand Prize Winner of the 2008 Tunesmith Songwriting Contest in Nashville and the Grand Prize Winner of the Stagenoise 2007 International Songwriting Contest. He was also the 2008 Second Place Winner in the Song of Peace Songwriting Competition for the Tipperary Peace Convention.

A Pittsburgh Native, Leslie was a regular at the local clubs. "I loved playing at the Shadow Lounge in Pittsburgh because they respect and support the music and the artist. The vibe is the same whether you’re an unknown independent or known major act. It’s all about the music at the Shadow Lounge."

Bowe’s fans in Pittsburgh, where he started and is still a big favorite, are no strangers to his soulful style. Since relocating to Chicago, a whole new audience is regularly astounded at the energy and insight he brings to the stage. He is having the same impact at shows in front of new fans in Philadelphia, New York, and Nashville.

As a child, he was drawn to the music his father and uncles - members of a group that sang acapella gospel and Sixties music. When they realized he could handle both melody and harmony with equal ease, he became part of the group. His influences include Elton John, Billy Joel, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, Bunny Ruggs, Third World and Seal.

Bowe produced two previous albums, "Gypsy" and "Through My Eyes", both of which are available on CD Baby. His new album, "Color of Sound" includes the tracks "Hallelujah" and the title song "Color of Sound" with lyrics that give us a clue about what really drives Leslie Bowe. "This is how I feel", he sings in the refrain to a driving, heart felt, message driven neo-soul flavor, "I’m crying from the bottom of my heart, something real – you cannot conceal… the Color of Sound."

It’s a message that resonates with his fans, which range in age from kids to seniors but tend to cluster around the 25+ Adult Alternative demographic.

Fresh. Authentic. Soulful.
