Music To Write By – 21

Lesley Duncan was a singer-songwriter in the early 1970s although her performances as a backing singer go back into the 60s. I came across her songs after I saw an album of hers advertised on the inner sleeve of another singer/band’s LP. It was a common way for record companies to advertise their other artists. I loved her music, her voice, and as a teenage boy I loved her too. She was the only singer I ever wrote to, and received two signed photos in return which spent many years on my bedroom wall. Lesley had terrible stage nerves which curtailed what might have been a much bigger career. Search out on YouTube her duet with Elton John singing ‘Love Song’ which she wrote.
