Los Angeles-based, Lady Blackbird (aka Marley Munroe) embodies musical inspirations such as Billie Holiday, Gladys Knight, Tina Turner and Chaka Khan in her work whilst possessing a style and emotional intensity that is very much her own.
Her debut album Black Acid Soul received a five-star Guardian review and features a stellar band including former Miles Davis pianist Deron Johnson.
This is heady, haunting, sexy, soulful, heartbreaking stuff. With a voice that suggests a cross between Mahalia Jackson and Nina Simone, Lady Blackbird tears your heart apart and puts it back together again.DownBeat
