BARDO is the creation of front woman Leslie King. Having been in the Los Angeles singer songwriter scene for a number of years, King decided to branch out and follow a long time pull to explore her voice in the rock arena.
Although BARDO started as a fun experiment, it soon became a powerful platform for King both as a performer and songwriter. It became clear to her and everyone around her that she had found her home.
Partnering with long time friend and collaborator Rich Jacques (Producer) BARDO’s sound quickly formed and launched onto the rock and roll landscape in 2008 with the release of their first album “Recurring Dream”.
Here, King rediscovers her voice and aptitude for rock and roll as front woman to BARDO, which is, no question, a welcome addition to the rock and roll landscape.
BARDO’s second EP is due out this spring and their new single “You Like Me A Lot” has already hit the market. You can download it for Free at http://facebook.com/bardoband
“Fronted by throaty rocker Leslie King, BARDO takes cues from the Pretenders, but rocks out with that combination of grit and glam that you can only find in Los Angeles. Power pop with sun poisoning, as demonstrated on BARDO’s impressive premier CD “Recurring Dream.” Next time through they’ll probably be at the Fillmore, so be forewarned.” – San Francisco Chronicle
“There is no limit to how far BARDO will go. As a rock band they are truly exciting and worth getting involved with. Another example how strong the indie scene truly is.” – Skope Magazine
“BARDO, of Los Angeles, CA, is a powerhouse collection of musicians comprised of front woman Leslie King. With their debut album, Recurring Dream, BARDO has created a raw, highly energetic, captivating and consuming work of art. Throughout Recurring Dream, the band uses dynamics, fabulous instrumentation, outstanding vocals and an overall honesty and level of real that is bound to leave audiences dumbfounded and speechless. 5 out of 5 stars” – Swift Reviewswww.bardoband.com http://www.facebook.com/bardobandwww.myspace.com/bardobardohttp://twitter.com/thebardoband
