This record has been quite the miracle. From a chance meeting with a producer at a small cafe gig, to his generous connections with LA musicians and studios, to the European label that joined the team. It is with incredible joy and gratitude that I offer this music to you.

The Pickle Jar

Lesley Kernochan

In cart Not available Out of stock

A collection of songs about pickles that turned into blessings.

This sophomore album is a sassy, heartfelt, unpredictable adventure. There are a multitude of grooves and a wide range of stories.

The magnificent musicians are: Jamie Stillway on guitars, Drew Shoals on drums, Arthur Parker on bass, Skip Von Kuske on cello, and Lesley Kernochan on vocals and piano.

Recorded by Rob Stroup at 8Ball Studio. www.8ballstudio.com. All songs written and performed by Lesley Kernochan.

Featured Review: If you were to blend the eclectic musical stylings of Nellie McKay add the incredible voice range of Kate Bush, you may begin to understand the wild ride Lesley Kernochan’s The Pickle Jar will take you on. No need to try and pigeonhole Ms. Kernochan – that’s virtually impossible, and while it may be a frustration for many reviewers and music buffs, it’s a breath of fresh air to me. I have listened to this CD countless times over the past few weeks, enjoying it more every time.
Imagine being pulled and whirled through a series of musical stylings – staccato violins, banging pianos, musical saws, trombones. Various key changes, tempo changes, timing; and that could be all in one song! How it moves so effortlessly from mandolins and a little honky-tonk piano in one piece into a romp worthy of a stageful of dancing Roaring 20’s flappers I’m not sure, but every listen I give to it leaves me smiling and laughing at discovering some new piece of brilliance.
Do I love The Pickle Jar? Absolutely. Will I look for more Lesley Kernochan in the future? You bet your eclectic butt. Thank you to Lesley Kernochan!

Undulating

Lesley Kernochan

In cart Not available Out of stock

A one woman a capella group creates the harmonic and rhythmalicious experience of Undulating, complete with colorful lyrics, lush melodies, and beatboxing. There are a few rockin' band tunes mixed in as well, including the ever popular mock-pop "Piece of Meat". This is deeply inquiring music with effervescent passion, and a zany sense of humor.

"Filled with unending smile-inducing brilliance! There are moments here where Lesley is simply unbelievable..." - Daniel Flessas, KBOO 90.7FM Portland, OR

Recorded by Jason Wells @ AudioWells www.audiowells.com. All songs written and performed by Lesley Kernochan.
