Leigh Sloggett: vocals/guitar
Les Oldman: drums
The Leigh Sloggett Duo plays original blues music, contemporary and inspired, yet strongly connected to its roots. Deep grooves, exciting contrasts, distinctive husk-tinged vocals and compelling musicianship on open-tuned and lap-slide guitar, driven and punctuated by the expressive drumming of Les Oldman.
Leigh has three albums to his name and is currently recording his fourth. He has toured internationally and has been performing consistently over the past decade building a reputation as a unique song writing and guitarist.
Les is a talented musician with a sensitive approach to his drumming. A valued session and festival musician and educator, he has performed with some of the best in the Australian music industry, including Ross Hannaford, John Dallimore, Les Stacpool, Paul Gadsby, Eris O’Brien, Nick Charles, Andrea Marr and Alex Burns.
Finalist in the 2014 MBAS Blues Challenge, Leigh and Les first worked together on Leigh’s third album ‘More Than I Need’ in 2012. The album went on to reach number 8 on the Australian Blues and Roots charts with radio airplay around Australia, most prominently on ABC Radio National’s program, ‘The Inside Sleeve’ as well as on many stations across America.
