Lesley Barth's debut full-length Green Hearts, a 2017 concept album charting the course of young love, has been referred to as "one of the most intelligent, evocative pop albums to appear in recent years (Anti-Heroin Chic)."
"Intelligent" and "evocative" are appropriate words for her thoughtful and inquisitive lyrics that vividly paint curiosity, heartbreak, and longing in ways that move listeners deeply.
Drawing frequent comparisons to Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Fleetwood Mac, with a commanding and singular voice reminiscent of Natalie Merchant, Barth shapes these influences into a unique viewpoint - a mixture of confessional songwriting, poetry, and wry observations about human nature.
Praised for her clever lyrics and craftswoman approach to songwriting (writing 30 songs in 30 days to celebrate turning 30, for example), Barth performs frequently to large and intimate crowds. Her rich voice immediately grabs the listener as she weaves engaging stories on solo guitar, piano, or with a full band that invites the audience into her world, laying bare her own emotions to help them access theirs.
Her latest single, Pinwheels, is out now, with more coming in 2019.
"One of the most intelligent, evocative pop albums to appear in recent years." - Anti-Heroin Chic
"Make no mistake, Barth is a star, center stage, and she is using her platform to give it her all. Run and grab your copy of Green Hearts when it comes out. You will not be let down." - Music Existence
You can’t help but embrace her style and eagerly await to hear more.”
