Lady Alma

Please note: This event has already occurred.
Lady Alma is a product of the influence of a couple of generations of divas -- Chaka Khan, Loleatta Holloway, Jocelyn Brown -- but she has carved out a lane for herself that is all her own. She brings gospel and blues to dance music as well as a sophisticated jazz style to modern soul. Whether belting out a club-smashing house banger or seductively cooing over sparse, skittish downtempo tracks, Lady Alma stamps her singular imprint on every song she touches while enhancing the producer's original intent. King Britt, 4hero and Mark de Clive-Lowe have all delivered classic records with Alma at the microphone. Then there's her live show, which embodies the ideal of leaving it all onstage. Blues Alley may not be able to contain her.
