Leather Lungs: Son of a Preacher

Leather Lungs


‘The voice of our generation’ ★★★★★ Weekend Notes

Leather Lungs is the fierce, frisky and fabulous alter ego of award winning triple-threat entertainer, Jason Chasland. The Australian-born/New Zealand-raised artist’s astounding vocals mean he has been sought by the best, singing for the Beckhams, touring internationally and performing as a vocalist for Adele during in her 2017 tour.

A master of falsetto and ‘stiletto’ with a phenomenal vocal range spanning over four octaves, Leather Lungs 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. Featuring an explosion of songs including powerhouse party anthems by The Weather Girls, Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner, staged in all manner of sequins, pleather and shiny costumes, Leather Lungs fuses good old-fashioned fun with the romp of vaudeville.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Ben Anderson
