Queen Esther Sings Black Americana Sunday, June 18th at 7pm Superfine 126 Front St. DUMBO 718 243 9005 FEATURING: Hilliard Greene, double bass Jeff McLaughlin, guitar + vocals “This album is amazing. And very difficult to classify. Can you imagine a black Lucinda Williams? Not like when she plays the blues torn from her first albums, no. A black Lucinda Williams in pop, rhythm, blues and even gender roots Americana. So it sounds, if you can imagine such a hodgepodge somehow, the latest album from this brutal, original, explosive singer.” — El Descodificador, Vanity Fair (Spain) “Every song is sung with passion and fire, by this underrated female singer who should be a musical giant.” — Country Music People (UK) Accompanied by bassist Hilliard Greene and guitarist Jeff McLaughlin, songwriter/vocalist/guitarist Queen Esther sings original material from her critically acclaimed Black Americana album The Other Side as well as alt-blues, country gospel standards and new songs.
