"AXS exclusive premiere: Lesley Barth debuts DIY music video with 'Oh, Andy!'"

rough masterful use of rich vocal harmony and insightful lyrics, Barth's signature blend of folk, pop, rock, and soul has garnered an tremendously loyal fan base that helped fund her first full-length album to the tune of $8,000. Lesley Barth's debut album is due out this summer. In creating her newest video, Barth wonderfully personifies the universal desire to make the most of each experience. With "Oh, Andy!," we see the singer absolutely smitten and embracing every moment she has with the object of her affections. The DIY visuals are full of creativity, warmth, and a genuine wonder that perfectly matches the enchanting nature of the song itself.

Since arriving in New York nearly 5 years ago from her home city of Philadelphia, Lesley Barth has honed in on her signature blend of folk, pop, rock, and soul. Influences from Carole King, Fleetwood Mac, and Motown inform the melodic, piano-driven tunes thick with vocal harmony, and Barth’s wide range and soulful, strong voice frequently draw comparisons to Sharon Van Etten, Christine McVie, and Natalie Merchant. She independently released her debut EP ‘Good Like This’ to a packed house at New York's Rockwood Music Hall in 2015, in addition to consistently performing at top singer-songwriter venues including The Living Room and Pianos. Having successfully completed a crowd-funding campaign as part of OvationTV and Rockethub's first ever Creative Studio, Lesley returned to Brooklyn's Mission Sound to record her first full-length album in early 2016.

Fans and critics alike have described Lesley's music "enchanting," and the depth of her songwriting skills and voice are reminiscent of 70s and 80s acts such as Carly Simon, with deeply personal and honest lyrics reflecting life, in the form of relationships, disappointments, and many things in-between. - AXS

"Interview with Lesley Barth, folk rock singer/songwriter"

It is so refreshing to hear an artist who is so passionate about their music and truly brings that message through their songs as well. Lesley’s vocals are rich in harmony and honest emotion. You can’t help but embrace her style and eagerly await to hear more. - Music Junkie Press

"Woman Crush Wednesday: Lesley Barth"

Charming, whimsical, nostalgic. These are all words that I would use to describe my pick for Woman Crush Wednesday: Lesley Barth. Her unique take on retro pop and soul might have you thinking that she comes from the 70s – fitting nicely somewhere between Carole King and Fleetwood Mac, but her career’s just kicking off in the here and now. She released her debut EP, Good Like This, back in late 2015, and is currently hard at work on a forthcoming full length record. - Confront Magazine


With a throwback disco-like groove and airy vocals, this is a happy tune that gets us in the mood to dance…and maybe drink some whiskey. - Pancakes & Whiskey


Still working on that hot first release.
