Washington Blues Society 2020 Best in Blues Performer of the Year, singer, songwriter, storyteller, producer Lady A is known as the “Hardest Workin’ Woman in Blues, Soul, Funk & Gospel.”
Lady A’s new single, “My Name Is All I Got,” lends itself to the memories and moans from ancestral cotton fields, to church hymns and Dr. Watts call and response… reminding the listener that “they trying to take my name…” and, if we continue to be silent, the outcome will always be the same.
“I Am…because of those who came before me.” Lady A #TheRealLadyA
Along with her longtime band of John Oliver III (drums, music arranger, background vocals), Roz Royster McCommon (background vocals), Herman Brown (guitar), and John Studamire (bass), the fire has been lit for the cause and pour music back into the soul.
“It’s a reminder, especially to any who’d still romanticize the lush plantations and genteel charade of the Antebellum South, that we have not come far enough from the dark history that made that world possible. “My Name Is All I Got” is the powerful affirmation of a survivor, a fighter, a warrior for these times.” …Peter Dammann, Artistic Director – Waterfront Blues Festival
