Lorelei McBroom was born in LA and grew up with folk, rock 'n roll, pop, jazz, and soul music. Her family was progressive in their approach to her upbringing. She has worked with acts like Billy Idol, Chris Isaak, Miki Howard and Rod Stewart. In addition, she has toured with Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones. Her credits include a long list of A list musicians, as well as appearing at the 1988 Grammy Awards. Aside from her prolific singing career, Lorelei has a jewelry brand and is deeply involved on the production end of the music business.
This episode is with Leslie Hunt. Leslie is an extraordinary singer and performer who has reached the semi-finals of American Idol — beating out over 100,000 contestants and repeatedly performing for millions on live TV. She has her own record label, several solo albums with star artists, and for the past decade she has been the singer of a progressive rock band called District 97. I met Leslie when my band, Infinite Spectrum, performed with District 97 at Progtoberfest in Chicago a few years back.
