2020 sees the release of Blackbird, the debut single from hotly tipped US vocalist Lady Blackbird. A stirring interpretation of Nina Simone’s powerful civil rights anthem, the track is imbued with passion, enthusiasm and hope and signals the arrival of a revelatory new voice on the global jazz scene. “The Grace Jones of Jazz” - Gilles Peterson, Worldwide FM “I find her just mesmerizing...she blew me away” - Anne Litt Program Director, KCRW “This singer that blew my mind…a singer thats just gonna explode, her name is Lady Blackbird” - Gilles Peterson, BBC6 Music “I’ve heard the album it is absolutely awesome! It's going to be one of the albums of 2020…Remember the name Lady Blackbird” - Jeff Young, Jazz FM UK Lady Blackbird: "Being in the legendary Studio B, (Prince’s room), in Sunset Sound with my band and my producer Chris Seefried was a ground-breaking moment for me as an artist. It helped me find a way to express who I am now and marked the re-birth of me as Lady Blackbird.” Whilst reflecting influences as varied as Billie Holiday, Gladys Knight, Tina Turner and Chaka Khan, Los Angeles-based Lady Blackbird (aka Marley Munroe) possesses a style and emotional intensity that is very much her own. Her forthcoming debut album Black Acid Soul, which was produced by Chris Seefried and features a stellar band including former Miles Davis pianist Deron Johnson, presents a wholly fresh take on the jazz vocal idiom from an artist blessed with a bold, unmistakeable voice.
