About LJ

Singer, performer, songwriter, recording artist

LJ Mounteney

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.

Next Gig:

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!
