Diane Durrett & Soul Suga Live

by Diane Durrett

Delivering an evening of music and stories is the commission of a troubadour and the life chosen by Atlanta Soul Blues singer-songwriter Diane Durrett. Her eighth album and second with backing band Soul Suga’ titled “Diane Durrett & Soul Suga LIVE” captures Durrett in her element; on stage with songs and stories of life, love, redemption and celebration. All her skills are on display on this 25-track set captured at two shows at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, Georgia in July of 2017. Durrett dishes out her southern charm with sincerity and wit like a modern day Will Rogers and delivers vocal finesse akin to Mavis Staples, Nancy Wilson and Irma Thomas. The ten original tunes and one inspirational cover are infused with soul, blues and gospel and intermingled with interludes, expository intros and life lessons from a master storyteller. Durrett is backed by the ultra-tight Soul Suga’ band, featuring Melissa Junebug on drums and percussion, Yoel B’nai Yehuda on keyboards, Gregg Shapiro on bas

Album Notes
A rousing introduction poses the question “are you ready for some soul and something sweet?’ setting the tone for the show. Durrett and the crew then launch into the proof positive revival ‘Bright Side,’ followed by the furious funk of ‘Butters In The Skillet,’ a horn-drenched tune from the Soul Suga’ album that made the top 10 on Roots Music Report. The slinky ‘It Is What It Is,’ tells the story of lost love and features a sweet trombone solo from Funderburk.

Durrett then waxes poetic introducing the sermon on self-preservation on the glorious hymn ‘Wish It Would Rain,’ urging us all to keep the faith in desperate times. She continues with the message for the easy swing of ‘Love Has A Right To Be Wrong,’ co-written with William Bell, before telling a heartwarming tale explaining her inspiration for the lovely ‘Be Somebody’s Angel.’ Her mother and grandmother were the inspiration for another beautiful tome ‘All Is Well,’ that features a gospel soaked organ by Yoel B’nai Yehuda. The sultry ballad ‘In Between Times,’ showcases the power and emotional depth of her dusky alto. Junebug steps up front and center for a hot percussion solo before the raucous second line tale of a wild blues singer ‘Sassy Larue.’ Durrett digs deep into the Cole Porter standard ‘Summertime,’ adding her unique flair and sizzle to the lexicon of the most recorded song of all time.

Everyone shines and heads to funky town on the rousing ‘Don’t That Bring You Back,’ and the party rolls on for the saucy House Rocking Blues Grand Finale ‘Woohoo,’ an obvious fan favorite designed to get everyone on their feet. The audiences at Eddie’s Attic surely enjoyed a fabulous night of entertainment and now we all have this wonderful keepsake from those magic evenings with the pride of Atlanta; Diane Durrett and Soul Suga LIVE!
