Twyla Birdsong Band
Twyla Birdsong (vocals), Ibrahim Jones (Bass), Clarence (Boonie) Dottery (drums), Doug Fritch (guitar), Mike Skory (keyboard)
From the first moment Twyla Birdsong sets free a deep soulful note, audiences are moved by the raw talent and radiance that pours from this incredible woman. Her rich, resonant voice strikes a balance between diva and divine, connecting her with audiences through the soul of her song and her presence on stage.
The force that is Ms Birdsong, bears a striking resemblance to distinguishable female vocalists before her with the same synergy between self and song. Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James - women who fill your hearts with their voice.
Twyla has embarked on a journey with Jazz and seeks to re-connect audiences with the joy of Jazz review shows from days gone by. She built her blooming career on the Blues, but her recent flirtation with Jazz is producing profound results. Standing ovations and encores from audiences who haven’t heard this kind of untrained passion in decades are wowed by her modern review UPTOWN.
Reminiscent of a Cotton Club supper show, UPTOWN is built on a bedrock foundation of the Blues mixed with sultry modern soul and sexy jazz standards. Twyla reconnects audiences to the sounds and imagery of an intimate, soul stirring remembrance of Jazz that audiences feel a part of.
