Leslie Joy Lewis (born c. 1968) is an American singer and the older sister of Jenny Lewis.

She is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent. Her parents, Linda Lewis and Eddie Gordon were part of a lounge act called Love's Way in Las Vegas. Mostly spending her childhood in hotel rooms, living out of suitcases, Leslie would sometimes be brought on stage to perform with the group. When her parents broke up around 1978, Linda relocated with Jenny and Leslie to Los Angeles. While Linda worked as a waitress, she brought Jenny to auditions for commercials and later TV and movies.
