Woodbridge Township’s Music on Man Street is pleased to present solo performances of two amazing singer songwriters on one co-bill.
West Virginia native Christian Lopez was named by Rolling Stone Magazine as “Best Newcomer” at the Americana Music Festival in 2015. Christian’s 3 full length CD releases “Onward” (2015), Red Arrow (2017) and “The Other Side” (2021) translates the iconic America before him with crisp and thoughtful imagery and storytelling.
Brooklyn-based Leslie Mendelson is supporting her most recent studio album ‘If You Can’t Say Anything Nice…,’ as well as a solo acoustic EP ‘In The Meantime’. All Music writes that Leslie evokes “1970s songwriter influences in the vein of Carole King and Carly Simon”. Leslie’s duet with Jackson Browne for the documentary film,‘5B,’ was released in 2019. Leslie has also worked with The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir who recorded a duet with her on Roy Orbison’s standard, “Blue Bayou,” as well as being invited by The Who to open for them at Madison Square Garden.
