“…the Philadelphia singer-songwriter ranks among the most striking female blues voices of recent years.”
-The Boston Globe
Gina Sicilia's ambition and determination has always set her apart. The decorated blues vocalist penned her first song at age 12 and, after the overwhelmingly positive response to her 2007 debut album, Allow Me to Confess, started touring all over the world. Today, Sicilia plays over 150 shows a year and is fiercely motivated to keep pressing forward in the name of musical progress.
"I’ve learned that hard work and experience are what it takes to grow and become a better artist," she says. "And I see myself as always evolving, reaching for a kind of perfection within the music I love to make. I’m not sure I’ll ever find it, but I’ll never stop searching."
Since nabbing a Blues Music Award nomination for Best New Artist in 2008, Sicilia has enjoyed great chart and radio success. Tug Of War reached #3 on the Contemporary Blues Album chart and was the #1 roots album in Tennessee. "Abandoned" reached #2 on the Contemporary Blues Song chart, "He Called Me Baby" reached #1 on the Soul Blues Radio chart, “I Don’t Want To Be In Love” reached #3 on the Contemporary Blues Radio chart. "Heard The Lie" is the title track from the forthcoming album, which was produced/mixed by the Grammy nominated producer Dave Darling.
