Event description

Description

Thames’ live shows are the stuff of legend. She honors the bold blues women of the past with both feet firmly planted in the now. With her heart on her sleeve, she belts, growls, shouts, croons and moans from a place deep within her soul that harkens back to the days of Chess, Bluebird and Stax Records. She uses music as therapy and often writes from her own life story, and chooses material with positive affirmations that leave the audience feeling healed and exhilarated.

A show that is part revival meeting and sexual celebration, Thames will deliver a Mississippi juke joint-tongue-in-cheek blues tune or a soul ballad like Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind,” or “I Just Wanna Make Love To You,” or Ruth Brown’s “Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean,” encouraging audiences to leave behind their dancing reservations. She’ll slay the crowd with her balls-out rendition of “Wang Dang Doodle” or testify with a sweat-drenched passionate rendition of Big Mama Thornton’s “Ball And Chain,” Ray Charles’ “I Believe To My Soul,” or Etta James' "I'd Rather Go Blind" like no other. She often says she is a “woman of the 1950’s/60’s trapped in a young woman’s body” and she dresses the part. Bedecked in dresses, frocks and accessories from that era, Thames’ performance is Mississippi by way of Memphis with a quick stopover in Detroit.

The Detroit Free Press said it best, “She’s young and beautiful to look at, she’s a wonderful storyteller and her vocals are consistently breathtaking. Her shows are electrifying, and crowd-pleasing. This doe-eyed Motown (Detroit, Michigan) native has the “it” factor. Look out world.”

Her debut album, Tell You What I Know (2014 DeChamp Records), received much acclaim and stayed in the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Singles Sales Chart for 21 weeks – 2 of those at #1. The album also made it as high as #3 on the Billboard’s Blues Chart.
