Denise La Grassa Band: Soulful Blues
Chicago singer/songwriter Denise La Grassa’s blend of blues, soul, and R&B has been compared favorably with The Tedeschi-Trucks Band. She cites inspiration from R.L. Burnside, Aretha Franklin, The Allman Brothers, Mavis Staples, Otis Redding, and even Charlie Parker.
Those now legends have fueled Denise’s return to her soul/blues roots and a dream of returning to Europe to perform with her new band. It’s a musical journey being documented in a film titled ‘North of 40.’ The bluesy LP “The Flame,” is inspired by her own immigrant mothers dream of coming to America and is scheduled for a late summer/early fall release. Denise released her first live CD Rockin’ in the Castle Theater in 2019 to join her 2016 bluesy coming out The Blues Ain’t A Color, and the critically acclaimed April Dreams.
