I’m getting press. Yipee! So far so good. Get your copy of The White Cat Sessions today.—Leslie
“Krafka is an excellent songstress, penning all but one of this baker’s dozen release. Her songs target love and relationships, both good and bad, peppered with the occasional poignant tune about life experience, and a clever song about Mary. Krafka’s voice is outstanding, acting as the lead instrument on every track.”—Lucky Boyd, My Texas Music 03/2011
“We don’t know much about this countryish singer-songwriter, but her Wandering Troubadour song is a good start.” —Andrew Dansby, Houston Chronicle 03/24/2011
“…her debut (CD) was well worth the wait.” —Michael Damante, Houston Chronicle 03/22/2011
Well, I’m a few days out from my CD release last Sunday at the Mucky Duck. What an amazing, fun and eventful weekend that was. I am so happy with how the release went. We had a full house, the band sounded great and I think Jack Saunders (my producer), Rick Richards, Rick Poss, and David Carroll did a great job. Thanks again to all the wonderful friends, family, neighbors, and fans who came out. You all have my deepest gratitude.
Looking forward, I’m still working on outlets for the CD. All 13 tracks are available now online at iTunes, Amazon, and other various sites. I’m also been able to pick up a couple of new gigs, which rocks! And, looking ahead, in a few weeks, March 15th, I’ll be playing in the Songwriters Serenade — a song contest in Hallettsville, Texas. I’ve heard such wonderful things about the Songwriters Serenade. I’m really looking forward to it. I’ll keep posting updates….so check back often.
Ta-Da! Yes, my website has officially been launched. And in a few days, I will release my debut CD, Leslie Krafka – The White Cat Sessions. I’ve had a lot of help and encouragement from family and friends. It’s true, no man (or woman) is an island. My life is full a wonderful people. I’m lucky to know so many great folks, and I meet more everyday. All of the work and preparation for the launching of the CD, has been an eye-opening experience. It’s amazing how much work there is to do and how much detail needs attention. My friend Terri Hendrix taught me all about “The Part That Ain’t Art”. She even included it in a section of her new book “Cry Till You Laugh”, which you can get a copy of here: http://www.wiloryrecords.com/Wilory_Records/Store_&_More.html
I will continue to work on my website. But for now…I have the basics. If you can’t make it to my CD release Sunday, March 27th at the Mucky Duck; CD’s can be purchased at Cactus Music, Sig’ Lagoon, and online at My Texas Music.com, CD Baby (coming soon), as well as digital download on all the big boys like iTunes, Amazon, and etc. shortly. Check back soon, as there will be more to come.
