Thornetta Davis’ Honest Woman all original CD features 13 tracks, one a duet with Kim Wilson of The Fabulous Thunderbirds. The funky, rocking, soulful Queen of Detroit Blues has a beautiful, enchanting sound that has been described in many ways. When she sings she has a sound that is said to have a timbre like Sarah Vaughn, is sassy like Denise LaSalle, has the soulful passion of Etta James, belts the blues like Bessie Smith, has the power of Big Mama Thornton, and touches you in your soul like Aretha Franklin.
