. Jane Leslie’s first album, Dreamsongs has a unique story behind it -- an unusual experience in which a beautiful new melody appeared to her in a dream. "It was a vivid dream with a melody that I could not forget." This melody became the theme of her composition, Dreamsong, and inspired her to compose the other piano music in the album. Dreamsongs has been featured on the Internet and in broadcasts in the U.S. and abroad. Southampton Sunset is her latest album of original piano solos with melodies that speak directly to the heart of the listener.
