I thought it important that our Singapore artistes be highlighted on this blog, so when accolades poured in after Ivor's performance I thought it best to post these comments.
Hilary Francis Concert Esplanade Outdoor Theatre, 20th May, 2022.
IVOR LESSLAR, SINGAPOREAN GUITARIST - A GIANT!
I saw Hilary Francis and the SINGAPEACE band yesterday at the esplanade. Never seen any of the band before. I was blown away by Ivor's tone... Brilliant tone that clearly was down from fingers and not pedals. Economical but swinging guitar lines that clearly had drunk from the well of *SCOTTY MOORE.I had to look him up and search for him... thank you for this background.
I try to promote our local musicians and music. The world will listen if we make our voices heard. So sing louder in a more melodious voice. And like IVOR LESSLAR, play like the great masters. But he's original too.
Cheers to Ivor and Michael.
Yes, Mr. Lesslar reminds me of *JAMES BURTON backing Elvis and Ricky Nelson. I have the honour and pleasure to jam and share with Mr. Lesslar on stage twice.
Thoroughly enjoyed them. All the best to you both Mr. Lesslar and Mr. Bangar.
Cheers and God Bless.
