Lesley Duncan


Lesley Duncan

Lesley Duncan is a British singer-songwriter, born in the north-eastern English town of Stockton-on-Tees, most well known for her work during the 1970s. She received a lot of air-play on British radio stations such as BBC Radios 1 and 2, but never achieved great commercial success. Her songs were often about life and its problems, for example "Everything Changes" and "Sing Children Sing". Elton John recorded a cover of her "Love Song" on his album "Tumbleweed Connection", which was similar to her own version. Lesley contributed backing vocals to Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album as well as singing lead on the song "If I Could Change Your Mind" on the Alan Parsons Project album "Eve". As well as writing and singing her own material, Duncan was a popular backing vocalist in the mid to late 60s and 70s, most notably for Dusty Springfield.
