Rebecca Ferguson @ New Theatre, Oxford
Friday 22 January 2016, 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
£26.40–£39.90 (£23.50–£36.00 Theatre Card members)
Rebecca Ferguson, whose voice has been compared to Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone and Dusty Springfield, has reached for the stars with her third album Lady Sings The Blues, out on RCA Records.
The album is Rebecca’s interpretation of songs recorded by the legendary Billie Holiday, some of which featured on Holiday’s iconic record, itself titled Lady Sings The Blues. Holiday’s album and story led to the multi award winning film and record starring Diana Ross but Ferguson now brings her own experience and story to these classic songs for a new generation.
Rebecca wanted to record in a studio where Billie herself had recorded, so chose the famed Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, the legendary studio where many classic recordings were also made by artists including Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald. Lady Sings The Blues is produced by Troy Miller, who has previously worked with Amy Winehouse, Rumer, Laura Mvula, Dexys Midnight Runners, Chaka Khan and Gershwin Recomposed.
