ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The girl's got Soul. I'm not talking about shallow vocal tricks but deep Gladys Knight/Tina Turner Soul from the gut...

Like many Soul singers Nellie Travis's love affair with music began at church in her hometown Mound Bayou, Mississippi. During mid 1980's she san lead for the Mississippi based group "SSIPP", opening for acts from Dee Dee Warwick to Ray Charles. During this period she also recorded extensively in Memphis under the direction of Ed Townsend.

Since relocating to Chicago in 1992, Nellie has been singing throughout the Chicago, Texas, Ohio, Kentucky, California, Mississippi, New York, Indiana, Tennessee, Virginia, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Having blossomed as a blues force to be reckon with, Nellie now performs with her own band, The Men in Black. Not only is she a staple in the "Home Of The Blues" (Chicago) but she also has standing engagements overseas, performing in Greece, Germany, Brazil, Italy and Japan.

Ms. Travis released her debut CD in September 2000 titled "I Got It Like That". It was a critically-acclaimed set of mostly original Blues. In the same year she appeared on a Japanese- backed CD featuring Shun Kikuta entitled "Heart & Soul" for Yoshinaga Ichinose M & I Co. Nellie is also featured artist on Biscuit Miller's debut release, lending her vocal talents in a duet called "Let's Go Fishing".

In 2002 she released a live CD entitled "Nellie Tiger Travis "Live at Sweet Georgia Browns". In 2005 her CD, "Wanna Be With You", became an underground smash on the "Southern Soul" circuit. Songs like "You Gone Make Me Cheat" & "If I Back It Up" can still be heard frequently on radio and in clubs.

In 2007 she signed with CDS Records and has completed an even better CD "I'm A Woman"

The album was produced by Floyd Hamberlin Jr who also helmed her last project. If you are keeping time with a Chinese calendar 2008 will be the "Year Of The Tiger"!

I'm generally not a big fan of female blues singers, nor can I say I find very many CD's where every song on the CD is great. But Nellie Travis has done justice to female blues singers everywhere. Nellie sings each and every song with conviction, as if she has lived the life that she is singing about in these songs. A plus about this CD is,Nellie doesn't try to over sing the songs like many young artists do today.

There isn't a bad song on this CD, which is surprising considering the way the music industry is packaged and sold today. This CD is a steal,considering what you are getting on it.
