Message from Rebecca
I hope you are all good. I have been working on my new album and it is sounding great! I am so pleased with how it’s all going. It’s almost complete; I can’t wait for you to hear it and to perform it live. I have made the decision to change the dates for my tour and focus on getting the album ready! I know this will be an inconvenience for a lot of my fans as you were excited to see me.
See you there. I can’t wait!
Following in the footsteps of Billie Holiday and Diana Ross, singing superstar Rebecca Ferguson is back, showcasing her smoky vocals on her third album ‘Lady Sings the Blues’.
This is a stunning reinterpretation including the best of Billie Holiday’s classic songs, some of which featured on her iconic record of the same name. Recorded at the world famous Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, Rebecca wanted to work there as it was where the legendary blues singer herself recorded.
“It is a bold and confident step which establishes Ferguson as an artist capable of building a legacy of her own.” The Sun
Rebecca’s debut album Heaven was released to overwhelming critical acclaim and went on to sell a million copies. Critics compared her incredible voice to Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone and Macy Gray, with The Times saying that her debut “scaled the heights of Dusty Springfield’s career high ‘Dusty in Memphis’.
Ferguson’s second album Freedom was released October 2013 and found her honing her songwriting and performing skills into a record which, claimed Metro, showed her voice to be “smoky, steeped in emotion and somehow more seasoned that her years”.
“Fantastic. Wonderful. Sensational.” Terry Wogan
In the year when Billie Holiday would have celebrated her 100th birthday Rebecca Ferguson and her band have released her interpretation of these classic songs (released by RCA Records on 9th March, 2015) and they can’t wait to take this celebration of this iconic artist on tour.
This September and October sees a packed programme of gigs which showcase the finest international and local artists. From Motown legends The Four Tops and The Temptations and pop icons Heaven 17 to local stars Field Music and Brazilian hip hop activist Billy Saga, we have your musical taste...
Get ready to put your dancing shoes on as we welcome a stellar line-up for a great night out!
