The Bay Area Reporter, which calls itself “San Francisco’s largest GLBT newsletter,” recently reported on Samantha Sidley’s new “I Like Girls” video. Sidley is “an out, proud lesbian,” and she told The Reporter that she has no desire to hide it with lyrical word games. “I believe in directness,” she’s quoted as saying. “No need to beat around the bush.” Check out the article here.
Sidley’s unique take on vocal jazz is special not only because of it’s femme focus but also because – unlike many contemporary jazz releases that rely on old standards – it’s comprised of new, original songs written for Sidley by Inara George (The Bird And The Bee), Alex Lilly, and her multi-faceted producer and percussionist wife Barbara Gruska. Get it spinning now.
