Leslie Nuchow

After a 12-year hiatus from her music, Nuchow re-emerges onto the music scene with the release of her new 14-track album, Balm for Gilead. With her powerhouse vocals that 80s megastar Annie Lennox says “stand alone,” Nuchow recently sold-out her comeback show at Joe’s Pub in NYC in early October. Rolling Stone Magazine describes Nuchow’s distinctive combination of strength and sensitivity in her music as having “the grace of an erupting volcano and the subtlety of scent."

Self-described as “making music before I could speak,” Nuchow puts a lifetime of experiences into her music. After releasing her first album, Tenderland, in 1998, life caused her to take an extended pause away from music to care for her sick mother and also raise her young son. After her mother passed away, Nuchow wrote her second album, Balm for Gilead, as an ode to birth, death and celebrating everything in between. Her songs present global issues in a very intimate light, ranging from a cry to end world suffering (“An Eye for an Eye (Will Leave the Whole World Blind)”), to a celebration of life highlighted through a chorus of 20 children (“I Don’t Want to Die Before I Die”) to saving the planet (“Water”).

Nuchow has never been afraid to follow her heart. She walked away from a very high-profile and lucrative promotion run by the Virginia Slims cigarette company, and founded Virginia SLAM!, an organization committed to keeping tobacco money out of the music business. She has taken a similar approach in her music, only writing songs from a place of “truth and power.” This honesty has resonated with thousands of music fans across the US. After the release of her Tenderland album, Nuchow was featured on several national TV networks, including MTV, VH1, Dateline NBC, Good Morning America, CNN headline News, and CBS Evening News with Dan Rather. In addition, Nuchow sang for Nelson Mandela at The World Peace Forum, and shared the stage with Sarah McLachlan, the Dixie Chicks, Sheryl Crow, and the Indigo Girls at Lilith Fair.
