Humpback Oak gained considerable attention and popularity and also won both Local Act of the Year and Critics’ Choice awards in Singapore's Perfect 10 Music Awards in 1995. Humpback Oak released two more albums, 'Ghostfather', an introspective, moody album dealing with the death of Low's father, and 'SideASideB', before calling it quits. Since 2001, Leslie has been working regularly with The Observatory, a band that offers him a new dynamic and operates off a very different tangent. The Observatory have gained recognition for the inventiveness of their music as well as their unflinching attitude towards challenging convention.
Their debut 'Time of Rebirth' was greeted with popular acclaim and their recent follow-up 'Blank Walls', sees the band pushing ahead with their musical adventures. Leslie is also one-third of free improvisation unit, Snake Blood Union. 'Volcanoes', Leslie’s first instrumental album, released in 2005, was an unexpected detour from familiar folk singer-songwriter territory and explored a more experimental palette in his musical vocabulary.
