Since bursting on the music scene in 2007 with her debut CD Allow Me to Confess, Gina Sicilia has been heralded as a distinctive new voice in the Blues, as well as an insightful songwriter and interpreter of neglected classics in the Rhythm & Blues genre.
In 2008 she was nominated for “Best New Artist Debut” at the Blues Music Awards in Memphis, Tennessee, just as her sophomore release Hey Sugar proved her to also be a legitimate contender in the worlds of Classic Country and Americana.
With her latest release, Can't Control Myself (2011), Gina broadens her stylistic palette, infusing even more Soul and Americana into her bedrock influences of Blues and R&B. This CD features seven new Gina Sicilia compositions, as well as three choice covers borrowed from Bobby Bland, Stevie Wonder, and Ike & Tina Turner.
“This will be the second opportunity for blues fans in the region to see Gina Sicilia in an up close and personal situation” explains Amy Whitesell of A Music Company Inc., promoter of the show.” “Gina was one of the headliners of the 2008 Blues Under the Bridge festival and made a lot of new fans. We brought Gina to Venue 515 in 2011and fans were thrilled to be able to see her perform in a concert situation.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 the day of show and may be purchased on line at www.amusiccompanyinc.com or at Venue 515.
