Singer/producer/songwriter/multi-intrumentalist Ryan Leslie recently spoke about his musical influences during a show he did couple of days back at the Diesel Store on 5th Avenue in NYC. Before his performance he talked about three artists that influence his career the most: Prince, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson.
Ryan Leslie, though still not as mature in the game, has often been compared to Prince since his musical capabilities touch wide horizons, similar to the purple one.
“Prince is the total package, Stevie as well. Their full talent really ranges across the spectrum of singing, songwriting and producing.”
