BILLBOARD INTERVIEW!


Thanks PopMatters! “Suddenly Someone”, a tune that crackles with the energy of glam, the spirit of punk and carries a little more lyrical heft than your average two-minute tune.”


 

Some awesome new mentions from Music Injection, Post-Trash, OUT Mag!

Lenny Zenith’s rock legacy is as legendary as it is quiet. For over three decades, the New Orleans musician has released music with bands that include Jenifer Convertible and Tenderhooks and opened for everyone from U2 to Iggy Pop.

Now, over 30 years after his quiet transition, he has crafted a legacy in rock and roll as one of the genre’s first true transgender rock stars.” – OUT Magazine
