“Swaggering proof that there is nothing dated about soulful rock and roll sung with attitude, defiance, and a take-no-prisoners aesthetic.” – American Songwriter
Critically-acclaimed rock ‘n’ soul singer Bette Smith traces elements of her life-affirming new album (The Good, The Bad and The Bette) to her childhood in Brooklyn, NY. Musically, it connects to the gospel music she heard in church and the soul music on the street corners.
Those same street corners have produced several modern soul legends (including the late Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley) and Bette Smith stands poised to shimmy her way into the spotlight as “the next big-voiced soul sensation out of Brooklyn” (Mojo).
This performance is part of LOH’s FREE Nexus Music and Arts Festival. Location: Main Stage (behind LOH/City Hall)
