The SheHH podcast is a podcast series all about Christian women in the front and behind the scenes of Christian music all over the world. The name is a play on the phrase CHH, which stands for Christian Hip Hop, but SheHH is for all genres (and all women!) within Christian music.
Series One of the SheHH podcast gave us the opportunity to speak to five amazing women from all over the world: Wande (USA), CASS (New Zealand), Adegail (UK), Risha Leondra (USA) and Sal Ly (Nigeria). Series One is available to stream here: https://anchor.fm/shehh.
In this episode, we speak to creative extraordinaire (we don't say that lightly! This woman does it alll!) Risha Leondra. This is great for those of you interested in the behind-the-scenes side of the music industry. Risha has worked with Gawvi, Alex Medina, Derek Minor, Canon etc etc and is now with Good City Music!
