“I’ve seen most of them broke, drunk or naked — or all three.” – washingtonpost.com

You grew up in a neighborhood with some pretty decent singers, didn’t you?

But they’re just other people who sing! Aretha was a chick who had a
real high voice and sung in her father’s church. I can’t think of them
as being legendary. I’ve seen most of them broke, drunk or naked — or
all three.

My friend Nekisha introduced me to Bettye LaVette when her last album “I’ve Got My Own Hell to Raise” (2005) was released. Check out the link for the full interview.

A Singer’s Hardy Old Soul – washingtonpost.com

I can hardly believe this kid is 26. Earlier this year I posted about Amy Winehouse and her Back to Black album. Well, this is another young singer who pays homage to the R&B sounds of the past and still makes them his own.

“This is Ryan Shaw” is his debut album. The future looks bright for this one – check him out!

Rufus Wainwright : Official Site

I’m so looking forward to this release. Everyone should listen to him at least once – such a voice! Besides, he writes some of the best lyrics and music crafted these days.
