Album Notes
I am a delicate flower: SoulMama sings standards

This recording may seem like a departure for those of you who know me and have seen me with The Clyde Stubblefield All-Stars for the last decade, shakin my ample booty and belting out the funk and r&b. Quite the contrary. This has been in the making ever since my sister and I rifled through our dad's record collection and I made the discovery that would change everything for me. Standards. Quiet beautiful songs that let the lyrics speak for themselves with beautiful melodies that shine through any sort of instrumentation. I hope you enjoy my interpretations of these classics. They remind me that the world is full of beautiful things - and also of my grandparents, whose love for classic pop and jazz standards encouraged my own. I am excited to get out and play in Madison, WI and also to getting back in the studio to record more standards - there are quite a few to choose from!

These are the songs that feed my soul and have followed me around for decades, waiting patiently in the wings. These are the songs that have called to me, sometimes quietly, sometimes banging at my door. These are the songs I have been singing my whole life, to myself. Here they are, simply sung, for the world to hear.

Thank you to Kenny for your patience and your excellent ears. Thank you to Harris, Johnny, Cliff, and John for jumping on board and trusting me to lead the way. I think we found a beautiful place. Thank you to my family for your unending love and support. And thank you to Clyde, for giving me my nickname, this album’s title, and your generous spirit. I will keep you in my heart forever.
