It Resembles Fiction
Don't let her 'girl next door' looks and charm fool you. In the short 7 months since Leslie Dinicola burst onto the New York music scene, she has already created an avid following of devoted fans and a team of esteemed and accomplished musical collaborators. Packing venues such as Arlene's Grocery, Fontana's, and The National Underground, DiNicola's powerful stage presence and extraordinary vocals call to mind such greats as Janis Joplin and Alison Krauss. Drenched in soul and armed with a range that knows no boundaries, DiNicola flawlessly combines a raw and magnetic vocal approach with a sweet sense of vulnerability. Matched by her compelling and personal songwriting that speaks of experiences far beyond her years, DiNicola whisks audiences away through the entire spectrum of human emotion. Her 5-track debut EP, It Resembles Fiction, (available March 4th, 2010) announces the arrival of an artist to keep your eyes on. The 5 tracks were produced by Ellis Traver who has worked in various capacities with artists such as Diane Birch, Fischerspooner, Sean Lennon, and Mark Ronson. The songs deliver a natural cynergy of blues and rock, while featuring accomplished artists such as Angela Webster (Rhett Miller and The Believers, The Holy Ghost), Michael Cheever (Fischerspooner, Avan Lava), and Greg McMullen (Chris Whitley, Glenn Branca), and Jeff Hudgins (Matt Bauer, Loiter). It Resembles Fiction is audible proof that Leslie Dinicola is a career artist at heart, who clearly has the soul of a star.
