Leigh Harris - House of Secrets

Leigh Harris - House of Secrets - 1999

Leigh Harris, aka "Little Queenie", is a woman of many talents and accomplishments. Leigh Harris co-founded Little Queenie and the Percolators with John Magnie, and over the years has shared billing with such diverse artists as B.B. King, Elvis Costello, Taj Mahal, Asleep at the Wheel, the Neville Brothers, the Guess Who and NRBQ. She completed her first solo album in 1999.

After winning the prestigious Big Easy Award for Best Female Performer in 2000, she went on to produce and record her second solo record - POLYCHROME JUNCTION in 2001. House of Secrets brings us a very intimate Leigh Harris, artfully breathing life into a program of wildly various selections including songs by Doc Pomus, Brian Wilson, Jagger-Richards and Ray Davies. Supported by a pool of exceptionally sympathetic musicians, Harris stamps each performance with her own personality. There are fine originals by John Magnie and Glenn Patscha, two excellent Harris compositions 'Telephone Sleeping in My Bed" and "Crazy Mirrors" and an exquisite reading of "Paint This Town" in a duet with pianist Joshua Paxton.
