The Voice 5/5/15

It was a real pleasure to be on The Voice again backing last seasons winner Craig Wayne Boyd as part of the string section.  We recorded and got to be on camera for the new original song he co-wrote with his manager, “I’m Still Here”.

Saturday 4/25/15 Leslie Baker Songs and Stories 4:30 pm 1 set with trio

Saturday, April 25 at 4:30 pm, my trio presented a 45 minute show at the Silverlake Branch Library, 2411 Glendale Blvd., L.A. 90039

The Silverlake Branch Library is built on the corner of Glendale Blvd. and Silverlake Blvd. It used to be a gas station where I got smog checked.  Now a beautiful library has baby grand piano that has been donated.  How inspiring for making music in my neighborhood. This will be a purely acoustic show and the start of something new.

Much thanks to Yumiko on piano and Tsugumi on drums who helped this happen in a wonderful way.

The audience included VIP’s Helen Auerbach, LaQuetta Shamblee,  Adrianne Hall, Rich and Alyce Cantu.

Upgrade to my website!

I am lucky to have friends that want to help get my website going so it will read well across tablets, computers and phones.  I spend a lot of time to stay up with ever changing technology! Stay tuned……our plan is to have new things for you to see often. 2 of the following pictures are now newly published…..maybe you saw the duck of doom before.

My website can entertain you with music, pictures, stories + info.
It gets updated very often thanks to Paul and Neva designs setting me up with the new modern blog style website that I can add things to myself.
I hope you like it and continue to stay in touch with me,
Leslie
