Canadian born Leslie Knauer's impressive career started with platinum success. As a teenager, Leslie fronted the band PROMISES, on EMI with her two brothers. Their two albums were hits, winning gold and platinum status in Europe, Australia, New Zealand. Their Number One Hit "Baby It's You" written by Leslie and her brother Benny, is still a bonafide classic especially in Australia, New Zealand!
Next, she garnered a deal at CapitolRecords, working with Jack Nitzsche.
Then four more albums as the lead vocalist, co writer with PRECIOUS METAL on Polygram Mercury.
Challenging herself, she has also assumed the role of sole guitarist with KANARY. Kanary 4 cd’s on Rocket City Records and had an EP released in Japan on Tricycle Records.
Throughout her career, Leslie has remained an incredibly prolific songwriter; many of her songs have been featured in Film and on TV, and have been covered by other recording artists.
Now!! Baby It's You is featured on Netflix in Offspring! Season 3, 13th episode 33 min in.
Performing with Precious Metal and Naked Hand Dance... There's something very special about all the people in these bands. I find the kindness extraordinary. The generosity of everyone playing together, old members and new! Rehearsals, dinner and drinks after are heartwarming!
Naked Hand Dance, a celebration of sexy seasoned songfulness. a duet with Al Teman and or full band with Howard TeMan on Drums and Dave Alvarado on Bass.
