The old Forced Exposure blurb:

Leslie Q is a new discovery from Tennessee I believe, who records songs in a solo bedroom style that are startling in their immediacy, power and ability to fly out of the known universe. Really rough textured acoustic guitar, insanely personal vocals, perfectly realized individualistic style. While Lou Guru and the rest of the Lo-fi-kill-me-now generation feverishly scour their Boys Life back issue set-collections for subject matter and inspiration, its nice to hear somebody maintain & actually add to the Real Person canon.
