An R&B diva with a sharp, distinctive vocal style that balances passion, ferocity, and confidence.
Five time Grammy nominee Bettye LaVette is no mere singer. She is an interpreter of the highest order. Lavette is one of very few of her contemporaries who was recording during the birth of soul music in the 60s and is still creating vital recordings today. Her first single “My Man – He’s a Loving Man,” was released on Atlantic Records, and over the next half century, Lavette has performed around the world, recorded for numerous labels, and has been honored with several prestigious awards, including the W.C. Handy Award for Comeback Blues Album of the Year, Pioneer Award by The Rhythm & Blues Foundation, and two Blues Music Awards for Best Contemporary Female Blues Singer and Best Soul Blues Female Artist.
