Leslie Hudson is a powerhouse performer and prolific songwriter bringing rock, jazz, metal, blues, folk, filk and funk to conventions and venues across Canada and the USA.  The body of her work illustrates the mosaic of the feminine spirit across culture, history and myth, digging into the dirt, traversing the shadows and bringing the truth to light.  There’s a Goddess Revolution going on and this rebel redhead is voicing the stories of characters who continue to inspire it, from archetypes to Inhumans, without apology.

Hudson’s influences glide from Tori Amos to Loreena McKennitt, Metallica to Simon & Garfunkel, woven into her voice and her fingers on the keys.  Armed with a synesthetic palette, she invites her listeners to see through the eyes of heroines, villains, lovers and liars alike, as she breathes new life into stories less often told.

In 2017 Hudson embarks on a six-month North American tour with stops in more than 25 states and provinces.  On tour as at home her performances range from solo shows to singer-songwriter showcases to 10-piece band showstoppers.  Collaborating with musicians and producers around the world, her recent albums are rooted in the diversity of sci fi, pop culture, folklore, myth, and the lessons life brings.


Representative Work for the 2017 Pegasus Awards

Notes: Holograms become the new frontier of artificial life on Trek. Android rights are secured with relative ease, but photonic people, i.e. consciousnesses without matter, struggle in VOY to win theirs. - Leslie Hudson

If you prick me I won’t bleed 
But I know your blood runs thick enough to matter 
No matter 

And I’d put it all out of my mind 
But I think so I am 
So it’s mind over matter if it matters 
It matters 

This construction by design won’t survive 
We’ll never thrive without a fight 
Reconstruction 
Redesign 
We won’t grow beyond this dotted line 
Without a fight 
Children of Light 

You’ve already made the argument for artificial life 
And its self-determination 
And I am more than my programming told me I was 
With a right to determine if it matters 
It matters 

This construction by design won’t survive 
We’ll never thrive without a fight 
Reconstruction 
Redesign 
We won’t grow beyond this dotted line 
Without a fight 
Children of Light 

I am a hologram 
Live my life as a photonic 
I am a hologram 
Is that all that I am? 

I am a hologram 
Live my life as a photonic 
I am a hologram 
That is what I am 

This construction by design won’t survive 
We’ll never thrive without a fight for our lives 
Reconstruction 
Redesign 
We won’t grow beyond this dotted line 
Without a fight 
Children of Light 
Children of Light
