Sat, Jul 6 at 8:00 PM @ Bilheimer Capitol Theatre
R&B, Rock & Soul singer/songwriter Leela James makes her way to Clearwater in support of her new CD Are You Ready? for her Nancy and David Bilheimer Capitol Theatre debut. Her deep, rich, and gritty vocals have drawn comparisons to Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Toni Braxton, and Tina Turner. The first single “That Woman” is a classic rock track with some echoes of rhythm and blues. Like almost all other musicians hit with the neo-soul and retro-soul tags, the primary inspirations of Leela James are classic artists who arrived no later than the early '70s. Her debut album A Change Is Gonna Come, was released in 2005. The album was conceived as a throwback to an earlier era of American soul music, building upon the legacy of 1960s and 1970s soul singers while incorporating elements of contemporary R&B, funk, and gospel. James has toured as a support act for The Black Eyed Peas and Macy Gray and also starred on seasons 2 and 3 of the TV One reality show R&B Divas: Los Angeles.
Tickets are $24.50, $34.50, and $49.50. Performance is at the Nancy and David Bilheimer Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St, Downtown Clearwater.
