leslie hunt - featured with ENTOURAGE

"Leslie Hunt is truly the most exciting, dynamic, talented young artist I have worked with in many years. She exhibits the command of her art as both a writer and singer that is hard to find in someone her age. The collection of songs on the CD “Your Hair is on Fire” shows her range and depth that by all rights should propel her to the top of the heap as one of the very best new artists of our time.”
