Our Music

Welcome To Our Music Page.

Sandi and I were married in 2008. We began the "Les and Friends" project together in 2014 with the release of the demo EP "Full Speed Ahead." In 2016 we released "Where You Lead," our first full length CD . This was followed in 2019 with the "Nickel CD". We have since released a video collection called "The Videos", a remastered version of "Where You Lead" in 2022, several singles and our "Beauty From Ashes Music YouTube" page.

"Beauty From Ashes Music" is the publishing arm of the "Les and Friends" music ministry

We have so many friends that help us with these projects that we like to acknowledge them as the "Friends" part of "Les and Friends." I could not do this without one very special friend. A special THANK YOU to my wife Sandi. She more than just a partner in this project. She is my soulmate, vocalist extraordinaire, my sounding board when I need an honest opinion, my vocal coach and my best friend.

Downloads of our CDs and singles can be purchased through "Bandcamp". Our music can also be found on major streaming platforms such as "Spotify" and "Apple Music." Physical CD's can be ordered directly from us through our CD/DVD store. Click the pictures or links below to see the appropriate item.
