On this weeks episode, your mercurial host Simon Husbands welcomes to the studio Mr. Leslie Rich, singer songwriter from Belfast in Northern Ireland!
Leslie grew up in Belfast in the 70’s, when it was the norm to have soldiers patrolling the streets and to be searched by a heavily armed police force just to go shopping downtown. In 1989, he started to put his teenage frustrations and beliefs to music and after scarring his mum’s guitar for a few months, he finally got one of my own and started performing. Apparently he’s still at it, although the things he write about now are a little more grown up. He’s been very lucky to have performed with almost all of his musical idols and to have released a bunch of music on his own and with some great bands like The Rocket Soul Choir, A Little Of The Ready and Hounds Of Finn. He moved to Minnesota in 2004 and considers it his home.
