When they first met, musician and songwriter Stuart Mcleod was looking for vocal coaching and singer/songwriter and performer Lesley Curtis was looking for a creative marketeer to help her with her website. It was a fair swap of skills. Five years later finds them collaborating as the singer/songwriter and performing duo ‘Oakleas Rise’. They have created their own unique style of original music with flavours of American Country and English Folk music – a sort of English Americana.
Together they wrote a few songs for Lesley’s country music album ‘Looking For the Girl’ released in 2015 and they are now working on their first album together as ‘Oakleas Rise' which is due for release in early 2019.
Based in Northamptonshire they are willing to travel and are available to book now. They can play 2 x 45 minute sets of purely original music, although they have been known to throw in the odd cover or two.
Such a great place...
