Leslie Satcher

Leslie Satacher is best known as a songwriter, and has the elite status of receiving multiple BMI “Million-Air” awards - recognizing a song’s one millionth airplay. Additionally, her incomparable vocals contribute to an astounding number of Grammy, CMA & ACM award winning projects. After being mentored at a smaller publisher by many of the music industry’s legendary songwriters, she made the move to Sony Music Publishing where she would stay for nearly 15 years. During this time, she was also signed as an artist at Warner Brothers. While recording her critically acclaimed debut album, “Love Letters”, her songs were steadily growing in demand. In 2015, Leslie signed a multi-year publishing and administration deal with Noting Hill Music.

While Leslie is primarily known as a country singer and songwriter, her talents cross all genres. Leslie's songs are recorded by everyone from Willie Nelson to Ariana Grande, Vince Gill to Sheila E.; George Strait to Sheryl Crow; Martina McBride and Keb’Mo, to Merle Haggard & Gretchen Wilson. Notable songs like "Troubadour" by George Strait keep her work perpetually in demand.

“This Won't Take Long” was recorded during a series of sessions in legendary Muscle Shoals, Alabama as a part of Leslie Satcher's forthcoming album. The song was written by Satcher and native Shoals hitmakers Brad Crisler and James Leblanc, both of which cut their writing and production skills at Rick Hall's FAME studio. Specifically written as a soulful throwback song, This Won't Take Long was produced by Crisler and tracked live with a small group of veteran players including LeBlanc on Electric guitar, Jim "Moose" Brown on Wurlitzer and Hammond B3 organ, Tommy Harden on drums and original Muscle Shoals rhythm section bass player David Hood. The track was recorded by Grammy winning engineer Jimmy Nutt and the recording was left essentially as tracked including lead vocal. Satcher enlisted her friends Vince Gill and Sheryl Crow to contribute vocals and the track was mixed by Nutt and mastered by Noiseblock's Chris Bethea, also in Muscle Shoals.
