GREG LEISZ is what they call in the trade a “first call” player. When not on the road he’s one of L.A.’s busiest session players; his credits include Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, the Ventures, Shawn Colvin, Sheryl Crow, Lucinda Williams, Beck, Joe Cocker, and more recently Willie Nelson, Los Lobos, Brian Wilson, Jackson Browne, and Bill Frissell, to name a small fraction. Best known for tasteful daredevil lap and pedal-steel playing, he is equally skilled at acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, and Dobro. He has played on most of k.d. lang’s albums since 1989 and just got back from a world tour with her that hit Europe, Australia, and Japan.
