Kirsty Leslie-Jones

I have always had a passion for all types of music from listening to classical music in my kitchen to Hard House rave music at the weekends. I was the geeky one in the music block through secondary school but then life/ kids took over so my music was put to the side. I met Mark and realised how little support amazing musicians get and how hard it is to get originals into mainstream. We want to unite all genres of musicians in our SparkyFunk Music Family where our main objective is for everyone to support each other and most importantly to get amazing music heard globally 😊
