Put a Pixie from the South and a Goddess from North of the Border together in concert and what do you get? Lets find out! Soojs Pixie Magic and Leslies Goddess Goodness fuse tonight in the name of PIRATE GIRLS AND GODDESSES at the lovely Tortuga Gallery! Dont miss it, and please feel free to dress according to our theme. Yarr!
Singer-songwriters S. J. Tucker and Leslie Hudson are sharing the spotlight for the first time ever this summer as part of Leslies #GoddessRevolution tour! Lusciously combined shows with these two powerful performers are scheduled in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Montana, Washington state, and Oregon.
Leslie Hudson is a powerhouse performer and prolific songwriter offering rock, jazz, metal, blues, folk, filk and funk at conventions and venues across Canada and the USA. Her recent albums are rooted in the diversity of science fiction, myth, folklore, redheads, and the lessons life brings.
The body of Leslies work illustrates the mosaic of the feminine spirit across culture, history and myth, digging into the dirt, traversing the shadows, bringing the truth to light. Theres a Goddess Revolution going on and this rebel redhead is voicing the womens stories who continue to inspire it, from archetypes to Inhumans, without apology.
In 2017 Leslie embarks on a six-month North American tour with stops in more than 20 states and 3 provinces. On tour as at home her performances range from solo shows to singer-songwriter showcases to 10-piece band showstoppers. Leslies music airs on podcasts and internet radio shows across geekdom (Geek Hard, Nerdy.FM, Fandomania, Trek.fm), and she co-hosts the bi-monthly movie podcast Dont Make Me Watch That.

S. J. Tucker, self-motivated singer-songwriter, poet, author and actress, came flying out of the Memphis music scene in 2004, guitar in hand and voice at the ready, and her feet have hardly hit the ground since. Come Monsters, Misfits, and Mythpunks! Come Witches, Pirates, and Literati! Come Dreamers fair and Schemers foul! S. J. Tuckers got a song for you. Slinging every sort of tune from a Murder Ballad about robots and thieves to a Shapeshifters Riverboat Shanty, this steamy siren slings em all from her drumming hands, her dancing guitar, and her soaring voice.
On the road across the continent full time for a fourteenth year, S. J., called Sooj by fans and friends, deftly binds together the varied elements of jazz, folk, and fairytales in her work. No two of her concerts are the same, but listeners and critics compare her guitar work to that of Emily Saliers, her vocal delivery to KT Tunstall and Joni Mitchell. The body of her recorded work spans more than thirteen years and features frequent guest performances by other hardworking indies. S. J. often travels solo, but also shares concerts with her 3-piece band Tricky Pixie, Torontos Heather Dale Band, Seattles Dogwood & Johnstone, and now the lovely Leslie Hudson!

Tucker is not only fantastic; shes like a character out of a fantasy novel. She weaves myth and magic into her lyrics as easily as a strain of cello, a lick of something electric, the chuffing of a train engineTucker has a knack no, a genius for weaving old ways with new.
