Two-time Grammy nominee Bettye LaVette is no mere singer. Bettye is an interpreter of the highest order. Whether the song originated as country, rock, pop, jazz or blues, when she gets through with it, it is pure R&B. She gets inside a song and shapes and twists it to convey all of the emotion that can be wrought from lyric.

“One of the strongest, most individual interpretive vocalists of the 21st century.” -All Music

“A valid rival to Aretha as the best woman soul singer of the past 50 years.” -Irish Times
