Melodic Treks 75: Goddess Revolution Rock / by Brandon-Shea Mutala

"Yeoman on the Bridge" With Leslie Hudson.


Star Trek has inspired many people in many different ways. It has inspired people to write stories, paint, and write songs. Leslie Hudson, a Canadian singer and song writer, describes herself as a powerhouse at the mic, and a person who can cut through a crowd of sound with a caress. With eight solo albums under her belt her songs span more than 25 years of writing every genre from rock to geek to faerie and demonstrate not only her versatility as a musician but her refusal to be contained.

In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by singer/songwriter Leslie Hudson, to discuss her new album of Star Trek inspired songs called "Yeoman on the Bridge." We also discuss her album "The Redhead League," red-headed characters in pop culture, how song writing has changed, and CBC television.
