Hard-rock trio Leslie, singer/guitarist Sadler Vaden, drummer Jonathan Carmen, and bassist Jason Fox, spend more time on the road than most local bands.

According to Vaden, the band played 94 out-of-town shows in 2008. He says, “We have two more to go before the end of the year.

When they’re not on tour supporting big underground acts like the Mooney Suzuki and Bang Camaro, they seem to be holed up in a recording facility. The band is currently working on their new album with producer Paul Ebersold in Memphis. ”
