About me

A life-long Haligonian (with a few spurts overseas), I’m living and working in Halifax and soaking up the east coast music scene at every opportunity (or as much as my wallet will allow).

What qualifies me to write about music? Nothing, really. But here’s some music-related trivia you might be interested to know about me…

  • I went to the same high school as Sarah McLachlan. (RIP QEH)
  • My Dad was formerly in a band call “The Banana Splats”. They were all the rage in St. John, New Brunswick in 1967. 2 of the members of the Banana Splats went on to form a band called April Wine.
  • In grade 8 I won a radio contest for correctly naming the Top 9 at 9. The prize was a meet and greet with the Backstreet Boys. I wore a blue (velour) sweater because Brian’s favorite color was blue. Needless to say, it was one of the best days of my life and I remain forever grateful to C100.
  • One of the best show I’ve been to (so far) was Chromeo playing at the Marquee (AKA: The Paragon). Fancy footwork indeed.
  • I know all the words to the Mull River Shuffle

I want to talk about great artists putting out great music. Let’s get into it, shall we?

  1. Sweet blog! I’d be pretty darn proud if my dad had jammed with April Wine founders.

    Let me know if you might be interested in covering my new solo project – Delta Will. I’m headed to Halifax and Fredericton later this month.

    All the best!

    • Hey Charles,
      Thanks for checking out the blog! I’ve been a bit neglectful of it lately, but I’m always happy to check out live music in Halifax. You can get in touch with me here or on twitter @ljflemming

  2. Hi Leslie. I’m a music publicist based in Winnipeg, hoping to send you some news about artists touring in Halifax. Do you have an email address I can send press releases to?

  3. Hi Leslie,
    I’d love for you to do an album review for Scientist’s of Sound’s new album! (set to release in Halifax June 21st at the Seahorse) Where should I send your exclusive download code?(email?) From your blogs I’ve read, I think you’d really like it!!

    Thanks
