Queen of the World
LezleeAnne Rios is a sensual, beautiful Transsexual with a powerful voice to match her passionate stage presence and those long gorgeous legs that straddle 2 countries: U.S. and Canada. She plays acoustic lead-guitar like Johnny Winter, Rick Derringer and Eric Clapton on crack while getting hit by lightning. Her songs are on one hand straight-up modern-indie-rock, on the other funked-up groovy blues-jam with the occasional adult-contemporary love song. A lot of her writing comes from a social-political justice theme of the 60's with a retro-70's hard-rock feel like Grand Funk and the Guess Who, yet modernized in the vein of Tragically Hip, Ben Harper, Bruce Cockburn, Nickelback, Shinedown and The Raconteurs. This 4th CD marks 10 years in the biz, which includes 900 shows, 150 cities, a quarter million miles. There have been gender-bending musicians who wore makeup and heels; there have been revolutionaries who had the guts to talk about social problems; there are a few acoustic lead-guitar players; there've been artists who defied all the conventions of their day. But, there has never been a hot, sexy, pretty, leggy, acoustic-guitar shredding, high-heel & miniskirt wearing, love-to-change-the-world Rock-Starlet like LezleeAnne!
