why not do it in good company?
And why not take a
double dose with
Lauren & Annie?
The Sunrise Theatre
Lauren Mitchell, the Florida based soul singer, who has been compared to Etta James by Josh Sklair (Etta's former music director), will be performing alongside the dynamic Annie Mack, who hails from Rochester, Minnesota on Friday, May 19th at the Sunrise Theater Black Box Cabaret. The show will start at 8:00pm.
Lauren's new album, “Desire”, produced by Grammy Winner Tony Braunagel (Bonnie Raitt, Taj Majal, Robert Cray), was just released to the public on March 31, and is climbing the charts. In the last few weeks “Desire” came in at #1 on The Roots Music Report Soul/Blues Chart, has spent two months on the Living Blues Chart, and has remained in the top 40 overall on the Blues RMR Chart. "Desire" has been said to be "The way blues should be sung today" (Wasser-Prawda, Germany), and Lauren's vocals have been hailed as "enough to cause thunder and lightning from the skies" (Bentley's Bandstand). Lauren was also the Suncoast Blues Society's 2014 IBC winner and performed at the Women in Blues Showcase in Memphis the same year
... which is where fate would connect these two female vocalists ...
When the two met in January 2014, Annie Mack had just released her debut album "Baptized in the Blues" which received a Blues Blast nomination among other accolades. "Baptized in the Blues" is described by Annie as "her life story" and "something [she] had to write before going on to anything else". A mix of blues, soul, and gospel, "Baptized in the Blues" tells that story beautifully. Most recently, Annie has released a new EP "Tell it Like it Is", in the UK to great fanfare ... the corresponding album is in it's final stages and will be released overseas and in the US this coming Fall.
With her high energy backing band, and her full-throttle all-or-nothing live performance, Lauren Mitchell will rock the house with her original concoctions of blues and soul. Joined by Annie Mack with her compelling songwriting, the electricity and charisma will be through the roof! This is definitely a show you will not want to miss!
