Press


A stellar live act, Swing Soniq has the ability to win over any audience in minutes. They put on an incredible show.

Winnipeg Jazz Festival - Dave Sherman


[Greg Leskiw's] made a dandy with [Love Wild] - a 14-song collection of acoustic jazz and blues tunes that shows just how deep his affinity is for the swingin' sounds of the '30's and '40's. [Greg] has the perfect voice for his lovelorn laments and uptempo variations on 'le jazz hot'.

As ever, his playing is tasty, refined and all his own - a way of showing that he does indeed inhabit and live this music.

Uptown Magazine December 2005 - John Kendle
