Leather Lungs

Son of a Preacher

Presented by Ben Anderson in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

Pray for hymn, or he’ll prey on you. This daring deviant will penetrate and titillate your unholy soul.

A master of falsetto and stiletto with a phenomenal vocal range spanning over four octaves, this daring deviant marries savage wit, outrageous innuendo and what Express Magazine called “a voice to die for” to drag you screaming with laughter into a world of pleasure, amusement and challenge.

Leather Lungs crosses with religion, fistfights with anxiety, scissors with sexuality and discos with dildos, amongst an explosion of songs including powerhouse party anthems by The Weather Girls, Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner.
