Ledisi Turning Loose New Album: “I’m Telling Everything.. As Usual”

No matter what your opinion is about the current state of music, without fail, every year there are a few releases that will meet the standards that sum up your definition of “real music.” Whether hip-hop or otherwise. For the past two years I’ve been talking up Ledisi as a voice that needs to be heard. Thanks to my tireless efforts, in 2008 she was nominated for best new artist and best R&B album Grammys. *I’m kidding.. about being responsible, not the noms.* On August 18, Ledisi will offer up her fourth album to the world Turn Me Loose. As Ledisi explores different sounds and continues to “tell everything, which is her usual m.o.,” there is the hope that she breaks through to a wider audience this time around.

“Talent will prevail, but it helps that you look a little bit cute.”

Ledisi Lost and Found and Discovered for the First Time

Oakland, California is home to a singer named Ledisi.

On August 28th she’s set to release her third album “Lost and Found.” Yup, three albums deep and not a peek of the Billboard charts; but it’s not for a lack of talent. Navigating the music industry isn’t for the faint of heart. Questioning the sense of her journey a third Ledisi album almost didn’t get made.
