FOLLOWING THE widespread success of spellbinding previous singles ‘Blackbird’ and ‘Beware The Stranger’, today sees the release of Lady Blackbird’s ‘Collage’.
Whilst remaining close to her jazz roots, ‘Collage’ sees Lady Blackbird delve into a psychedelic soul sound, reminiscent of the likes of Michael Kiwanuka, Sault and Celeste.
‘Collage’ is the third single to be taken from Lady Blackbird’s much-anticipated debut album Black Acid Soul, produced by Grammy-nominated Chris Seefried.
Since the release of ‘Blackbird’ and ‘Beware The Stranger’, the US vocalist has become regarded as one of the most exciting new artists on the global jazz scene, hailed as “the Grace Jones of jazz” by Gilles Peterson.
Whilst reflecting classic female vocal influences, 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 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.
