Dubbed a "breakout young artist" by The New York Times, Alecia Chakour is a blues siren. Armed with a gritty, bellowing voice, she tells stories of love, heartbreak and struggle with the timelessness of an old soul reincarnate. Alecia brings together gospel harmonies and an ardent rock and blues feel to make remarkably honest music that echoes influences such as Bobby "Blue" Bland, Janis Joplin, The Band and Sly & The Family Stone, but with a raw vulnerability all her own. The daughter of a musician, Alecia grew up steeped in the soul music tradition and has found her home there as a strong, unique voice within Brooklyn's vibrant rhythm and blues community. The past several years have seen her with a diverse roster of exciting artists, most recently as a member of The Warren Haynes Band. Alecia is now preparing her first full-length solo album along with her band (which includes Neal Evans of Soulive, Sam Cohen of Yellowbirds, Cochemea Gastelum of The Dap-Kings and brother Alex Chakour) to create a sound that has deftly been described as "sultry badass-ness."
