When vocalist, songwriter, musician and producer Queen Esther self-released her critically acclaimed album Talkin’ Fishbowl Blues in 2003 – described by Amplifier as melding “roots, pop and R&B in a way that Lucinda Williams, Melissa Etheridge and Sheryl Crow never could on their best days” – she called it Black Americana.

Raised in Atlanta GA and reared in Charleston South Carolina’s culturally rich and enigmatic Lowcountry, Queen Esther was imbued with African traditions and Black folkways that span centuries and continue to inform her work.
