Claudette King - There’s a new voice out of the south making waves, and if familial genes count for anything, blues/soul/r&b/pop singer Claudette King, a longtime Californian now living in Atlanta, will go far, very far. The youngest daughter of ultimate blues master B. B. King, she’s quick to cite her father as her main inspiration.
A native Californian formerly living in the San Francisco Bay Area, King has had the life experience to make lyrics mean something: a natural ease in shifting with the mood of each lyric. But most certainly, the power of Claudette’s enthusiasm for the splendid genre-blending music on her debut We’re Onto Something merits wide notice. One of the premier, up-and-coming blues-and-more vocalists of the day, we are sure there is lots more to come from talented Ms. King.
