Described by Relix Magazine as an artist with “a loyal\, cross-generational audience that hugs the hippie\, hipster\, coffee shop and society crowds\,” Leslie’s timeless musicality and evocative songwriting indeed cuts a wide swath. All Music writes that Leslie evokes “1970s songwriter influences in the vein of Carole King and Carly Simon\,” while The Aquarian calls her “the closest thing one can get to a truly honest musical experience.” \nLeslie Mendelson’s previous work\, including 2009 Grammy-nominated debut album ‘Swan Feathers’ and 2017 album\, ‘Love & Murder’ dealt with matters of the heart. When it came time to compose the songs that comprise ‘If You Can’t Say Anything Nice…\,’ however\, she and her longtime writing partner Steve McEwan set out to examine the anxiety stemming from the current socio-political climate with songs like “Medication\,” “I Need Something To Care About” and “Would You Give Up Your Gun.” It’s fitting extension of a more socially conscious outlook offered on “A Human Touch”—Leslie’s duet with Jackson Browne for the documentary film\, ‘5B\,’ released in 2019. \nIf Leslie Mendelson’s only collaboration with a legendary musician was Jackson Browne\, it would be a worthy point to celebrate. What’s truly telling is that Leslie has also drawn the attention of The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir who recorded a duet with her on Roy Orbison’s standard\, “Blue Bayou\,” while no less than classic rock royalty The Who invited her to open two shows at Madison Square Garden last year. She was set to open three more dates for the band in 2020 that were unfortunately postponed due to the pandemic. With some of rock music’s most legitimate voices seeking Leslie out\, it leaves no doubt the rarefied air she inhabits as an artist. \nCome enjoy an evening of live music\, food and drinks at Isis Music Hall. Advanced Reservations are highly recommended.
