Profile: Alis Lesley was an American rockabilly singer, once billed as "the female Elvis Presley."[1]

Lesley was born Alice Lesley in Chicago, Illinois on April 20, 1938. Her family later moved Phoenix, Arizona, where she attended Phoenix Junior College. She majored in television and radio, and began singing rockabilly while a student. She was discovered by Kathryn Godfrey, a popular Phoenix television personality and the sister of Arthur Godfrey. With Kathryn Godfrey's help, Lesley became a local favorite following her television appearances on station KTVK and in local night clubs.[2]

Lesley achieved brief national celebrity with the 1957 release of her only album, Barefoot Rockabilly Angel (Era Records 45-1034)[3], which featured her only charted single, "He Will Come Back to Me" b/w "Heartbreak Harry." Lesley's stage persona as "The Female Elvis Presley" included a guitar slung around her neck, greased-back hair, and combed-down sideburns.[4]
