End Your Summer With a Bang with Leslie Cours Mather’s New Album

This summer has been a great season for my favorite artists. Brian McShea and the Sidemen dropped an EP in June, and now Leslie Cours Mather is finally releasing her “I’m A Survivor” album on the 27th of September! I’m so excited because all the songs that Leslie has released so far have been such memorable hits, and I can’t wait to see what more she has in store for us on her new album!

This is going to be a big month for Leslie; with the new album release and performance at the Kidney Walk in Irvine, it’s going to be fun! The Kidney walk is going to be a great opportunity for her because it takes place just days after her album release, so those who get to go are blessed with hearing a bunch of her new songs live for the first time! I highly encourage that you guys go because you get to have fun on a walk with your friends, listen to some great new adult contemporary music, and, most importantly, you get to support a great cause! So get out there, download her new album, and take a walk for a cause!

Just be sure to follow her on Facebook and Spotify to keep updated on the latest and greatest form Leslie! If you’re as excited as I am, you can pre-order her album here!

Singer Songwriter To Celebrate Big Milestone with New Album Release

A relentless fighter battled her way through a kidney transplant two years ago. September 27th will mark the anniversary of this endeavor for Leslie Cours Mather, and to celebrate her triumphs she will be releasing a powerful album entitled “I’m A Survivor” on September 28th. Leslie’s songs are filled with inspiring lyrics that tell her life story and the hardships that she went through. Whenever I listen to her, I can’t help but feel happy and motivated because no matter what life throws at Leslie, she will always be motivated to fight through.

The bravery and resilience of Mather will continue to shine even after her incredible adult contemporary album is released. In the months following her release, Leslie will be performing at multiple Kidney Walk events hosted by the National Kidney Foundation. The Kidney Walks will be in Irvine, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. Her performances will be perfect for these events because, being that she’s gone through a kidney transplant herself, her music can be a beacon of hope to all of those who have to go through what she went through. Whether you want to hear great music, or walk and support a great cause, you should definitely try and participate in one of these Kidney Walks!

The bands tracks have been getting thousands of streams of Spotify and getting added to a bunch of fan playlists. It’s the perfect time to check them out! Slow Lights formed in 2013. Having written a multitude of original songs, Asa Kurland, teamed up with Felipe Cantuaria, Jason Altomare, Mike Pivik, and Troy Long to bring the tracks to life.

Slow Lights captures a coulful sound with a mix of rock and roll, funky rhythms, and the feel of an old school big band.

Portable Cabanas really makes you see how the band is described as a combination of rock, pop and horns leaning them to a bit of a jazz influence with a horn section. Portable Cabanas is now on Spotify, you can check it out here. You can also get a free download on Noisetrade. Hope you like it as much as I do! Looking forward to more from them!
