Leslie Evers – “What Kind of a Heart”
Americana Highways is hosting this premiere of Leslie Evers’ song “What Kind of a Heart,” from her new album Bound for Land, which is due out on February 2, 2024. Bound for Land was produced by Ed Johnson with associate producer Cliff Eberhardt. It was engineered by Alex Venguer and Scott Sorkin, and mastered by Oscar Zambrano.
“What Kind of a Heart” is Leslie Evers and Joe Newberry on vocals; Rick Ruskin on lead guitar; John Reischman on mandolin; Ed Johnson on rhythm guitar; Missy Raines on standup bass; and Jason Lewis on drums.
Sweet and lightly optimistic, this song issues a request for people to be more forgiving of missteps and wrongdoings. Why hold a grudge? Forgive, and forget it. Something to think about courtesy of the spritely music of Leslie Evers, with Joe Newberry in the vocal duet to round out the perspective.
“What Kind of a Heart” points to the whole notion of being at fault. The idea began with a simple family conflict in my life – but I thought it could expand to include other dynamics. A person can have regrets but could still begin to question – OK – mea culpa – but why am I having to beg so hard? I’d like to think people can be gentler on each other for unintentional gaffs and missteps. Joe Newberry is featured as the harmony/echo voice in this story – the same story, same words, but two sides. – Leslie Evers
