Three time Grammy nominee BETTYE LAVETTE is no mere singer, but rather a true legend with a musical career spanning more than 50 years. She is now rightly recognized as one of the finest vocalists and one of the great interpreters of song. 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 the lyric. Her discography spans five decades, but it is within the past decade that she has finally been recognized as one of Americas finest vocal talents. Bettye is one of very few of her contemporaries who were recording during the birth of soul music in the 60s and is still creating vital recordings today.
