“20 Cigarettes” Released Friday 10th June 2016
Heartbreakingly reflective stories from young breakout artist, Finlay Leslie
Showcasing her captivating and honest vocals with emotive guitar playing that lashes more passionately than the tides against the iconic white cliffs of her hometown of Dover, Finlay Leslie shines in the addictive “20 Cigarettes”, released Friday 10th June.
Leslie brings the heart breaking new single “20 Cigarettes” with her emotions laid bare. The young singer/songwriter flaunts her poetic storytelling, creating an anthem for those times when the heart aches. Finlay combines reflective lyrics and moving vocals with upbeat guitar playing displaying songwriting talent exceeding far beyond her years.
Finlay Leslie makes up for what she lacks in height with a big voice and a markedly vast range of song writing inspiration. Drawing experience from break-ups, trust, love, being elected Prom Queen & Queen and revealing what she would say to her twelve-year-old self, this gifted self-taught storyteller already has a wealth of experience at her song-writing disposal.
Nineteen-year-old Finlay Leslie’s talents were discovered when quickly racking up an impressive 60,000 YouTube plays, providing an early indication of her raw songwriting abilities with distinctive versions and arrangements of well-known covers before posting incredibly well received live versions of her original compositions.
Following shows with the likes of Blair Dunlop, Mishka Shubaly, Blackbeard’s Tea Party and Heather Peace, Finlay has been chosen to support The Sons of Pitches, winners of BBC2 TV’s “The Naked Choir” at a selection of sold out shows.
