Leslie Odom Jr.

Leslie Odom, Jr. Most recently terrified fans of the CBS drama Person of Interest as Peter Collier, the leader of a home grown terrorist cell. Other Television and Film work includes notable turns on House of Lies, Supernatural, Grey's Anatomy, Law & Order: SVU, SMASH, and the Tuskegee Airmen WWII action flick Red Tails for George Lucas.

This winter Leslie will star alongside his friend Lin Manuel-Miranda in one of the most anticipated theater events of the season as “Arron Burr” in Miranda's Hamilton at The Public Theater in New York City.

Leslie's self titled debut album is available now on iTunes!

Recent New York stage work includes the heralded City Center Encores production of Tick, Tick...Boom; A starring role alongside Raul Esparza in the Broadway musical Leap of Faith for which he was nominated for the Drama League Award and won the Astaire Award for Excellence in Dance. Other theater credits include Rent on Broadway, and regional stints at La Jolla Playhouse, Philadelphia Theater Company, and Westport Country Playhouse. He is currently scheduled star alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda in the highly anticipated world premiere of Hamilton at the Public Theater this winter. Leslie is a Princess Grace Award winner for Acting and a graduate of the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama. His self-titled debut album is now available on iTunes, Amazon, CdBaby, and all other online retailers.


“Leslie Odom Jr. gives us all the heart with his self-titled debut release; however, he still leaves us clamoring for more. In essence, Leslie Odom Jr. cleverly introduces us to a void that we didn't even know we had. The appetite of listeners are whetted for a second solo album, and we will rapturously listen to these nine tracks on repeat until we get more morsels of vocal brilliance from Leslie Odom Jr.”

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
