Pre-Order Wanderlust Wishing Well on vinyl or CD along with other great creations by Christine here: www.pledgemusic.com/christineleakey

Here's the first single entitled, Twinkle off my soon to be released second solo record entitled, Wanderlust Wishing Well.

I travelled to Los Angeles to record and self-produce my album with my friend, Fernando Perdomo who produces many including Linda Perhacs and is lead guitarist in Jakob Dylan’s project Echo in the Canyon (my drummer Matt is also the drummer in Echo in the Canyon). Twinkle is the sole track on the album that Fernando produced and I co-produced with him.

Anyway, I'm really hoping that you will enjoy Twinkle which is just one music flavour from a variety of what’s to come on my second album which is a blend of upbeat songs, a few dreamy ones, some jazzy and sultry ones, other worldly, circus vibes and more with a cinematic twist with some phenomenal surprise guests! :D And if you listen at the end of Twinkle, you will hear the gang vocals who are the voices of all who are on the upcoming album with me.

Thank you for spending time with this creation and I hope you will enjoy it again and again.

lyrics

There’s a twinkle in your eye
like no other I have seen
and it sparkles like the bright stars in the sky

Every time I look into those pools it feels just like a dream
and these past few days I feel much more alive

Yet I wonder with you being so
very very far away,
do you feel the way that I’m feeling now?

I want you, I want you,
I want you in the daytime, in the night time, in the morning time I do!
How naughty, hot totty tea.
My heart has skipped, I want to flee.
South like a bird, toward your every word!

Deep windows that attract suns love
attract my heart so dear
like glitter sprinkled on my skin so smooth
At times I want you here with me
and other times I fear
Into my hearts apartment you may move.

Yet I wonder with you being so
very very far away,
do you feel the way that I’m feeling now?

I want you, I want you,
I want you in the daytime, in the night time, in the morning time I do!
How naughty, hot totty tea.
My heart has skipped, I want to flee.
South like a bird, toward your every word!

(saxophone and trumpet solo with horns and birds chirping)

Yet I wonder with you being so
very very far away,
do you feel the way that I’m feeling now?

I want you, I want you,
I want you in the daytime, in the night time, in the morning time I do!
How naughty, hot totty tea.
My heart has skipped, I want to flee.
South like a bird, toward your every word!

whole band starts to sing along:
I want you, I want you,
I want you in the daytime, in the night time, in the morning time I do!
How naughty, hot totty tea.
My heart has skipped, I want to flee.

about

Christine Leakey Ontario

Once upon a music time, a 10 month old baby named Christine began to whistle. Then at 3, she sang made up songs to her dog. She took piano from a belching nun at 9 and taught herself guitar at 22. Christine formed bands and wrote hundreds of songs.

Now Christine has released her deeply personal debut solo album that puts a fresh spin on fusion and begs a new definition with every listen.
