  • Tracklist
  • With a voice that has captivated critics, Lady Blackbird is a new talent whose music transcends the jazz scene in which the LA-based artist is rooted. Reflecting influences as diverse as Billie Holiday, Gladys Knight, Tina Turner and Chaka Khan, and compared by critics to Adele, Amy and Celeste, Lady Blackbird is a distinctive and beguiling talent not to be missed.

    Lady Blackbird recorded her highly anticipated debut album Black Acid Soul at the legendary Studio B (Prince's room) in Sunset Sound, produced by Grammy-nominated Chris Seefried.

    Minimalist yet rich, classic yet contemporary, the album connects backwards with Miles Davis (his pianist Deron Johnson plays Steinway Baby Grand, Mellotron and Casio synth throughout) and forwards with Pete Tong (he made the Bruise mix of 'Collage' his second most Essential Selection tune of 2020).

    The 11 tracks have a sound, a feeling and an attitude that speak of Lady Blackbird's profound experience in music.

    Reviews

    "Lady Blackbird's album Black Acid Soul is the debut album of the year. Her warm, full voice shines - unbeatable!" (Deutschlandfunk)

    "OK, it's a little early to vote for Album of the Year, but Lady Blackbird is going to make the cut. Last year the singer told The Voice she wanted to make music that was more than "bubblegum and bullshit"; on Black Acid Soul she's managed to do just that." (London Jazz News)

    "Even jazz luminaries are amazed by this woman. She is rightly celebrated for her uncannily mature style. With determination she illuminates very different feelings. Whether pain or inner struggles: with Lady Blackbird everything really does seem quite authentic." (Stereo, November 2021)

    "Her debut 'Black Acid Soul' has power - acoustic, confident music with firm roots in the pool of Black American music." (Audio, December 2021)
