|Les July is an extremely unique self-contained recording artist / producer who sings, writes and plays several instruments. His new project, “Dreamland” is a ‘double album on one CD’. It’s a unique combination of great, catchy songs, intelligent, thought provoking lyrics, world class musicianship and great production. All coming from one person who has been known to exibit paranormal tendencies. As a producer, his knowledge of multiple genres of music and his ability to ‘mash them up’, has led to work with artists of many different cultures. Les has recently moved back to NYC where his first gig was opening for Todd Rundgren to a sold out crowd at B.B Kings. With recognition in all genres of contemporary music, Les has managed to escape categorization as an artist, producer and musician.|
