“Meet the Artist” Series – Winard Harper presents Phyllis Blanford

February 19, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Having lived for some years in Europe, where she collaborated with such great Italian musicians like Tullio De Piscopo and Pino Daniele, vocalist and composer Phyllis Blanford returned to America around the year 2000 and since then has established a reputation for assertive, heartfelt and soulful performances. Her singing style is relaxed, yet her appreciation and interpretation of the lyrics is intense. One unique quality about Phyllis Blanford is her innate ability to fuse musical genres with the foundation of jazz, exploring a blend of poetry, blues, rhythm and traditional American and Mediterranean blues songs with the intention for a multi-faced musical dance in song. Phyllis Blanford is no stranger to the various levels of artistry, whether it be television, theatre productions or upsetting live crowds with her high-energy performances of tunes she entitles “Rock-Jazz”, hinted with a perfume of fusion underneath.
