We cannot wait for you to experience the unmistakable voice of Lady Blackbird as she joins the lineup for our Roundhouse #IntheRound2022.

Reflecting influences as varied as Billie Holiday, Gladys Knight, Tina Turner and Chaka Khan, Los Angeles-based Lady Blackbird (aka Marley Munroe) possesses a style and emotional intensity that is very much her own. Her forthcoming debut album Black Acid Soul, which was produced by Chris Seefried and features a stellar band including former Miles Davis pianist Deron Johnson, presents a wholly fresh take on the jazz vocal idiom from an artist blessed with a bold voice.

Lady Blackbird says “Being in the legendary Studio B, (Prince’s room), in Sunset Sound with my band and my producer Chris Seefried was a ground-breaking moment for me as an artist. It helped me find a way to express who I am now and marked the re-birth of me as Lady Blackbird.”

2020 sees the release of Blackbird, a stirring interpretation of Nina Simone’s powerful civil rights anthem, the track is imbued with passion, enthusiasm and hope and signals the arrival of a revelatory new voice on the global jazz scene.
