New York State of Mind (Billy Joel) by LJ Mounteney Quintet

Love Me Like a Man (Bonnie Raitt) by Mounteney/Roper duo
The Look of Love (Burt Bacharach) by the LJ Mounteney Quintet


Mounteney’s petite frame belies a big voice and an even bigger onstage personality often surprising and delighting listeners.  With bluesy and soulful overtones as her staple sound, LJ’s musical range is diverse covering jazz, R&B, pop, blues and roots material and she moves from swingin’ to rockin’ in a heartbeat.

The LJ Mounteney Quintet is built around her decade long duo with multi-talented musician Jon Roper, and comprises some of Vancouver’s most notable talent including drummer Joel Fountain, bassist James Meger and saxophonist Graham Howell.

Leslie rocks the house whenever she commands the stage. Soulful, bright, feel-good vocals, no matter what material she’s doing, and she does it all: blues, soul, jazz and even classical. Plays a mean piano, too!
