CROSS-POLLINATION LXVIII - TUES SEP 20TH - 7:30-10 PM
LESLIE MENDELSON
EMILY ZUZIK

Leslie is gorgeous and can sing gorgeously.

"The art is solid, but it's the artist, strong and confident, who warrants attention....she cuts a fun-filled zigzag through r&b, blues, pop, and rock, deploying every vocal styling and nailing every inflection, growl, and coo. This range infuses You Had Me at Goodbye's songs with the energy of a powerful voice flexing its muscles."

--Village Voice featured review, September 6, 2006

"What Johnston would make of the richly produced, sassy, jazz/funk of Emily Zuzik’s “Love Wheel” I have no idea. In mood and tone it’s about a trillion miles from the shy, insular, frightened sound of his own recordings. It just goes to show that the sparseness and underproduction of the original songs allows massive license for radical reinterpretation; this boldness in approach is to be applauded as it allows fans to come to the material afresh."

--John Dover, PopMatters review of I Killed the Monster

"With smart, soulful and sexy songwriting, Zuzik will need the rest of her life to catch up to her own creativity, which has been in overdrive lately."

--San Francisco Chronicle's 96 Hours section, September 14, 2006
