Ledisi's voice is a multifaceted jewel
The Record Herald
As far as endorsements go, you can do a lot worse than The First Lady. Michelle Obama is a big fan of Ledisi, inviting the singer to play at her 50th Birthday celebration. It finally felt like the singer was receiving the recognition she deserved after many years flying under the mainstream radar. Her background actually lies in jazz, with sumptuous renditions of Duke Ellington and Thelonius Monk standards the highpoints of 2003 release Orange But Sometimes Blue. Since then she's been progressing towards a more contemporary soul sound, with multiple Grammy nominations and a collaboration with Prince no less along the way.
Her most recent release, The Truth, is not only her most polished effort but maybe her most upbeat as well. The subject matter may heavily lean towards heartache and break-ups, but it's delivered with a gleaming pop bounce. She sang the lead single I Blame You on Letterman to great acclaim.
The Truth Tour will be rolling out across the States this April and May, with able support coming from the Grammy Award winning Robert Glasper Experiment.
Opening night: 30 April 2014
Closing night: 30 April 2014
Robert Glasper Experiment will be supporting Ledisi on all dates after April 18th.
