    With a voice that has stopped critics in their tracks, Lady Blackbird is a revelatory new talent with music that transcends the jazz scene through which the LA-based artist is rooted. Reflecting influences as varied as Billie Holiday, Gladys Knight, Tina Turner and Chaka Khan, with critics drawing comparisons to Adele, Amy and Celeste; Lady Blackbird’s distinct and beguiling talent is not one to be missed.

    Minimal yet rich, classic yet timely; eleven tunes that have a sound, feeling and attitude that speak of Lady Blackbird's deep experiences in music.
