'On OLD LOVE, Neal & Leandra's Red House debut, songs are split between populist fables ('A Gambler's Life') and romantic overtures (the title cut and 'I'll Still Be With You'). But it would be wrong to pigeonhole the duo in that hoary stereotype of precious folksingers who venerate hobos, plead for globalism and affect the rustic. When the spirit moves them, Neal & Leandra can knock off a rocking bit of self-destruction ('Another Dead-End Romance'), turn cynics ('Self-Made Man') and doff their hats to romantically inclined nerds everywhere ('Hopelessly Square').'--St Paul Pioneer Press Neal Hagberg and Leandra Peak married in 1989 and began touring as a full time duo. Signed by Columbia Artists Management and recording on one of the country's preeminent singer-songwriter labels (Red House Records), Neal & Leandra have since performed in nearly every state in the country. The Washington Post says "as songwriters, Neal & Leandra have clearly mastered the art of saying more with less." The Minneapolis StarTribune says "listening to Leandra Peak's distinctively husky and lustrous voice might be as heavenly as listening to angels" and "Neal Hagberg writes inspired originals." And the Victory Review of Seattle writes that Neal & Leandra have "one of the most sensuous mix of voices I've heard."
