“Wonderfully evocative . . . the simplicity and directness of her songs make for a superb listen,” said America UK.com about Leslie Alexander. The High River resident, newly returned to her hometown after 15 years touring Canada and the States, has recorded and released a new roots rock single entitled “High River Strong,” to raise money for the town’s Flood Relief Fund. Produced and recorded by award winning producers Leeroy Stagger and John MacArthur Ellis, the upbeat anthem recalls the devastation High River endured through the flood of summer 2013, acknowledges volunteer support and celebrates the town’s resilience in overcoming the tragedy.
The song is available for digital download here, accompanied by the release of a CD by the same name. The disc includes tracks from all four of Alexander’s previous CDs, each one about the things that really matter – the things that can’t be washed away. You can order yours by through our web store or pick one up at stores and businesses throughout the Foothills area.
