I'm Leslie Hudson and I'm a singer of stories.  To get right down to it, I sing women's stories.  It's something I used to apologize for, but I don't do that any more.  I'm an advocate for women's stories.

I want to paint the full spectrum of what it means to be a woman taking inspiration from folklore, mythology, pop culture, science fiction, and life experience.  To weave these separate song-threads into a sonic, synaesthetic landscape of exploration and understanding.  Not to solve the problems of the world, but to reverberate the bedrock beneath our feet as we walk along.  To change the frequencies we hear.  To give our stories Voice.

The hardest thing about turning your art into your career is that you don't get paid for the time it takes to do the creating, but without the time to create nothing can be created.  I want to tell these stories.  The desire to share them with the world drives me every day.  And though I've never been the kind to want to ask for help, I'm asking you now.  Those of you who support me financially, emotionally, and creatively are all part of the music I am free to make and give back to you.  Come join my community of patrons and I will share with you the Work of my Heart.  You have my deepest gratitude.  Thank you for your patronage.

Leslie keeps her car!
In celebration, she will take it on tour and bring her music to as many people as she can reach.  Considering her last tour took her through 48 states and 3 provinces, this is a promise she can keep.
