I kept trying to give this EP to a producer to help me bring it to it’s highest potential, but things out of my control kept happening that led me away from that and I finally realized that the only person who can express this exactly the way I want to is myself.” Check out a teaser for the EP: More details on [Read More]

Lesley Barth does it again with another great video!

May 12, 2016

  Folk rock singer/songwriter Lesley Barth has done it again. She captivates us with her new video for piano ballad, Good Like This. She brings to life the amazing atmosphere which was inspired by a recent trip to Silver Falls State Park. “I almost didn’t know what to do with how amazing the setting was,” says Barth, and that feeling is easy to understand given the stunning environment captured in the video. “It was so green, overwhelmingly vibrant and lively. I think that there’s something related about the setting and the meaning behind that song.” The clip allows viewers to venture through the park alongside the artist as the lyrics pose thoughtful questions.

Quinell comments about the song, “The song, ‘Space to Breathe‘, is written about the end of a relationship. That time in the relationship when one of the two involved decides they need some space and while you’d like to believe that there’s still a chance, you know it’s really over. As a student at Walla Walla University, my favorite building on campus was always “Village Hall”. Now, as an alumni and a musician, I was very excited to be granted the opportunity to record a couple of my own songs in this beautiful building.
