Cheryl Lescom has been part of the Canadian Blues Scene for over 30 years. Starting off as a back-up singer for Ronnie Hawkins and Long John Baldry, Cheryl has recorded, toured and performed with the likes of Jeff Healy, Matt Minglewood, Dutch Mason the Downchild Blues Band and more. After an absence to raise a family, Cheryl recorded two independent CD’s before taking some time off to recover from a bout with Cancer. Her “High Heeled Blues” CD features 14 songs including “Queen Bee” written by Juno Award winner (and the CD’s producer and guitarist) Jack De Keyzer, “I Can’t Stand It” written by Mr. Downchild, Donnie Walsh (who guests on the CD) and “Beg Borrow Steal” written by Matt Minglewood. The first single “Heartache” features additional vocals by the Detroit Women and piano from Juno nominee Julian Fauth.
“Cheryl Lescom has one of the best and biggest voices in Canada..I’ve had many great singers with me over the years and Cheryl is by far one of my favourites!” Long John Baldry
When Cheryl teamed up with the Tucson Choir Boys (“Sameday” Ray Walsh and Dave The Cat) for an appearance at the Grapejam Acoustic Blues Festival, the response was phenomenal. After doing a few more gigs together the decision was made to start writing some original material. After a year of touring and recording, the CHERYL LESCOM & THE TUSCON CHOIR BOYS CD was released, garnering airplay on blues, pop and roots radio across Canada.
