Oakleas Rise are an acoustic duo featuring singer/songwriters Lesley Curtis & Stuart Mcleod.
Their unique style of original country/folk music has often been described as English Americana!
Lesley spent her formative years singing and touring with bands across Europe and the UK.
She turned to song writing in 2000 and released her debut album “Shock Delayed” in 2003. Since then she has released two more albums - “Naked” and “Looking for the Girl”.
Stuart started his musical education gigging working mens clubs in his native North East as a guitarist. After a break studying Art, he returned to music writing his own material. It was during this period that he met Lesley and began working with her, contributing towards her album “Looking For The Girl”.
They now write and perform together as Oakleas Rise.
