Lady performing 'Best Friend' as support act for Lee Fields & The Expressions at The Beatclub in Dordrecht.
All you have to do is listen to Lady once, and you'll remember—in case you forgot—why they call it soul music. The honesty, the aching sweetness, the raw power of these singers and their songs will remind you that nothing can move you as much, or touch you as deeply, as two women with amazing voices singing in tight harmony.
Lady is the name of the group and of their first recording—the latest from Truth & Soul. Together Nicole Wray and Terri Walker make music that sounds a little like the songs your Mama loved best—and at the same time like nothing you've ever heard before.
Nicole, who's from Atlanta and Terri, from England, met in New York City in 2009 and realized that their love of soul classics and the hip-hop of today would make for a new kind of record. They linked up with producers Leon Michels and Jeff Silverman, whose lushly-orchestrated, beat-heavy songs have showcased artists such as Adele, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Aloe Blacc, and Lee Fields.
Terri Walker has released four hit albums in the United Kingdom. Her debut was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize. Nicole Wray's debut single, "Make It Hot," was certified gold. She has been featured on singles by Missy Elliott, Cam'ron, the Black Keys, Kid Cudi, and many others.
Lady, Nicole and Terri's first project together, unites the mellowness and pop flair of 60s soul with the driving beat of hop-hop, and the silky rhythms of modern R&B. These two powerful voices harmonize to create a fresh sound that tells the stories of growing up and never giving up, of love and friendship, of yearning and losing, bad girls and good hearts.
Lady is an authentic original, drawing from the past to infuse the present with new power. In one of the album's most touching songs, "Sweet Lady", a loving tribute to their moms and to strong women everywhere, they sing, "Take my hat off to my mother, / such a sweet lady. / There will never be another one like you."
Prepare to take your hat off to Lady. Get ready to fall in love. There has never been, there will never be, anything like it before.
