Just when you thought you might’ve heard it all along comes Leslie Odom. It’s like a brand new music adventure; an exciting new journey of interpretation. Familiar enough to not rob you of the foundation of the rich inspiration that it all comes from but just so cool in the way it happens that you are sure this is the very first time it’s all happened this way. I think you’d be right.
There is courage and bravery bonded by respect and attitude. Then there is the matter of fact and naturalness of the voice. I don’t want the songs he sings to end. There is so much calm in the mood of the attitude. That very attitude is the artistry.
