LJ MOUNTENEY — Singer, Performer, Recording Artist.
A little about LJ….
LJ Mounteney’s petite frame belies a big voice and an even bigger onstage personality often surprising her 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.
In 2014 she performed with hot jazz group Van Django and Keith Bennett (harmonica) in the Van Django Bells Christmas Tour of the Lower Mainland and Victoria (including CBC’s Food Bank show). LJ will again be a featured guest artist in their 2015 tour of 5 concerts as well appearing on Van Django’s new Christmas cd.
LJ is also often a featured singer with Juno and Smooth Jazz awarding winning trumpeter Gabriel Mark Hasselbach.
LJ’s first cd is scheduled to be released in May, 2016.

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!
