Leslie Alexander

Leslie is the older sister, and lead vocalist for Lucky Penny.  She has always had a deep love of music and theatre in equal portions, and she doesn't believe there is a stage she can’t feel at home on.  

Leslie started learning her vocal craft in middle school choir, participated in talent shows, and even dabbled in modeling.  In high school she was an active Thespian, and by Senior year she was in 3 choirs.  However it wasn’t until Leslie was out of high school that she really learned the broad scope of her vocal abilities. She learned she could sing rock, blues, country, and show tunes. Leslie even participated in Columbus’s first ever televised singing competition called: Gimme The Mike! Columbus, that aired on our local Fox channel.

In between that and high school she pursued theatre, commercials and film.  On one of the independent films Leslie was in she had the opportunity to work with Jerry Springer.  The movie is called, “And the Winner is…” and Jerry and Leslie are featured on the cover of the DVD. Google it. It's semi-hilarious.

Another deep seated passion of the Delaware native has always been writing. Leslie was first published at the age of eight, and continued earning notoriety and praise for English projects and creative writing projects throughout her education.  A poem of hers was published in a compilation of young American writers when she was nineteen. Currently she is working on her first novel, a work of paranormal fiction.  To read more on Leslie, you can check out her blog here.  Or visit her author page here.
Today, she would say that her favorite singer of all time would be P!NK.  But if you were to look at her iTunes playlist you would find crazy gems from Broadway musicals, next to Melissa Etheridge, Adele, Annie Lennox, and Wynona Judd. There was a solid chunk of time however where she was totally obsessed with Celine Dion, and Maria Carey.

After those gems there is some angry girl music that makes the playlist, like Alanis Morrisette, Jewel, and Christina Perri. Leslie also likes Kings of Leon, Evanescence, Metallica, Ed Sheeran, Journey, Bon Jovi, and Queen lands exceptionally high on the list as well. 

When Leslie is not singing, she is at home with her two kids. She runs two other small business from home including a photography business that is just now picking up steam. Leslie loves sushi, red meat, chocolate, live theatre, live music, art, thunderstorms and girls nights in with no singing involved and mountains and piles and landslides of books. 
All the books.
