To my great fans, friends and family - I've made a fantastic new record called 'If You Can't Say Anything Nice...' It's filled with everything from introspective ballads to punk rock get-up-and-start-a-political-uprising party anthems. I believe it's truly the best record I've ever made and can't wait for you all to hear it. For the first time I'm doing it all on my own with little to no financial support. So I'm coming to you to help me raise funds to promote the album and get it out there to the world.  I'm offering up a fun selection of rewards in exchange for your support, including t-shirts, signed lyric sheets, house parties and vinyl, CD and digital download pre-orders. I'm so excited to start this new journey with you!!  Love, Leslie

Risks and challenges

My new album is 99% complete! We're planning an Autumn release without any expected delays. We want to raise funds to promote the record, including hiring a publicist, making videos, radio promotion and tour support. This will give the album a better chance of cutting through the noise in today's current music industry climate.
