Lady Alma Live - release date July 3, 2012
Lady Alma's fans run the gamut - from progressive artists like Moby, Kindred the Family Soul, India.Arie, Joan Osborne, Musiq and Les Nubians to regular working-class folk in West London clubs and West Philly barber shops. In cities everywhere from Atlanta and Amsterdam to Toronto and Tokyo, vocal sensation Alma Horton -- known to her fans worldwide as LADY ALMA - has become the name to know, deemed "the heart & soul of Philadelphia's soul scene" and heralded as "the truth in a roomful of lies" among tastemaker's circles.
Introduced to captive crowds via King Britt's acclaimed 1998 LP, When The Funk Hits the Fan as part of his groundbreaking Sylk 130 collective, LADY ALMA has since been catapulted to senior solo status, exemplified by the 20-plus barrage of irresistible songs she's blessed with her choral magic - among them, Fanatix' stunning "Higher" and "Gimme That Music" from Masters At Work's In The House compilation (Osiris); Rednose Distrikt's "Gotta Make A Move" (Rush Hour), 4Hero's anthemic "Hold It Down" (Talkin' Loud) and two highly-anticipated tracks by Japanese superproducer Yukihiro Fukutomi, "Peace" and "Hooked" (File).
One of the most widely-praised songbirds to surface from the ever-fertile City of Brotherly Love, LADY ALMA counts Philadelphia City Paper's 2002 Best Female Vocalist Award and Temple University's 2004 Sisters Defining Sisters Award for Artistic Excellence among her many accolades, arguably due to her amazing vocal dexterity and engagingly gritty live shows. "Even if you're into something completely different -- punk, indie rock, bluegrass -- you won't be able to resist the Power of the Pipes: She just blows you away," opines the Philadelphia Weekly. "And the more she sings -- and scats and wails and whispers -- the more excited the audience gets, until you've got a full-on revival-style meeting." "If you've never seen LADY ALMA live," attests Audioglyphix magazine, "she comes correct. If it's at Black Lily, Afrorikan Vybe, opening for Cee-Lo at the TLA or when she was part of the Sylk 130 tour, LADY ALMA is the real deal."
