Moving Panoramas

MOVING PANORAMAS are an all-gal dream gaze trio from Austin, TX, formed in 2013. Singer/guitarist LESLIE SISSON (of The Wooden Birds) and drummer KAREN SKLOSS (of Black Forest Fire) go way back. They met while attending film school in Austin and continued on to grad school together. Some years later, out of the blue, Karen called upon Leslie to fill-in on bass at the last minute for a Black Forest Fire tour. They had a blast and realized they not only made great film buds, but also great bandmates.

Meanwhile, Leslie was teaching music at Austin School of Rock where she met bassist ROZIE CASTOE, who was in an 80's show that Leslie directed, and who Leslie saw nothing but star power in, asking Rozie to join her next musical journey. The stars aligned when the three girls' primary projects had each run their course, so they decided to combine forces as a melodically rocky dreamy team. Sharing influential sounds from gazey roots inspired audial expansion into something spacey but not alienating, hard yet still soft... open, encompassing, airy... panoramic... and thus... PANORAMAS were born... who are now MOVING PANORAMAS.

Leslie is known for her work on vocals/guitar in The Wooden Birds with Andrew Kenny of American Analog Set and as a solo artist. Her history includes time in Matt Pond PA, Western Keys, Black Lipstick, Black Forest Fire, Tanworth-in-Arden, and guesting with American Analog Set, Windsor for the Derby, Rhythm of Black Lines, Mark Gardener of Ride, Dan Mangan, John Wesley Coleman, Snowden, and Broken Social Scene. She also toured as crew for Vampire Weekend, ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, and Sons and Daughters.

MOVING PANORAMAS is Leslie's favorite project yet. Their debut album "ONE" will be released mid-2015 on MODERN OUTSIDER RECORDS.
