She's been belting out the blues for almost 60 years now…and Alberta Adams shows no signs of slowin' down. She's got an earthy, world-weary voice which hints of a past filled with hound-dog men and hard-luck stories. Despite all that, her powerful yet ladylike stage presence lets you know she may have seen it all, but it's not going to stop her, no sir. With another W.C. Handy award nomination for "Best Female Vocalist" under her belt, invitations to join blues fests across the country, and a recent feature spot on the nationally syndicated "House of Blues" radio show, it's clear that this Detroit powerhouse has become a coast-to-coast treasure.
