Lesley Roley

Lesley Roley, an emerging singer-songwriter from Newcastle upon Tyne, would like the opportunity to record a professionally produced CD in Nashville, Tennessee, in the summer. After an 11 date UK and Ireland tour supporting Don Mclean last year, and support slots for various other acts including Madeleine Peyroux, she feels that a professionally produced account of her music would take her to the next level, and serve her better when contacting record companies and promoters.

Lesley Roley, an emerging singer-songwriter from Newcastle upon Tyne, would like the opportunity to record a professionally produced CD in Nashville, Tennessee, in the summer. After an 11 date UK and Ireland tour supporting Don Mclean last year, and support slots for various other acts including Madeleine Peyroux, she feels that a professionally produced account of her music would take her to the next level, and serve her better when contacting record companies and promoters.

Lesley will be playing a handful of small festivals this year, and believes that a great recording to hand out at gigs and festivals is the key to being taken more seriously and landing bigger and better gigs.

All investments will pay for recording sessions with Nashville's own Vip Vipperman, award winning songwriter, publisher, musician and producer.

Get involved by contributing to the making of Lesley Roley, and in return you'll receive a signed copy of the new CD, photos, Lesley Roley merchandise, your very own little video of Lesley playing a set dedicated just to you, or deals on future releases.


'Lesley kicked off with her tiny little masterpieces, perfectly structured and beautifully played. She has an eerie, almost uncanny ability to silence even the largest, rowdiest crowd with a whisper...a truly exceptional voice to lift your soul and break your heart in equal measures' - Radio 1

CD is finished!

Hey everybody! I'm just looking for the best place to get the recording pressed and packaged - it'll hopefully be ready by Christmas! Yaay! Now I'm not sure if this update will get to everyone, but there doesn't seem to be any other way of informing people. Hmmm. If you don't visit Wefund very often (and let's face it, why would you?):), then please search 'Lesley Roley' (musician) on Facebook and 'like' my page. I'll be posting updates on there more frequently. Lel x

Finally ready!

Woop we;re finally up and running! It's taken so long because I've had lots of problems with video cameras etc. So glad it's finally done. Hopefully now I can just sit back and relax:) Lel x

Settling in

Eeek well this is exciting! Have JUST set up my page - still need to do a video to tempt you all into giving me your dosh but I'm getting there. I just confirmed my first Nashville gig a few days ago - at the World famous Bluebird Cafe. Garth Brooks, Taylor Swift and countless music legends have been discovered there. Can't believe they gave me a gig! Still waiting to hear back from other venues over there and have started contacting places in New York - it seems to be very jazz orientated over there though so am goin to have to look very thoroughly to find the right places to play! Anyway, will get the video done soon and then hopefully we can get this ball rollin' :) Lel x
