This stands for Why Isn't She More Famous? I'm referring to Alice Smith. I had the pleasure of hearing her live at the Detroit Institute of Arts last night and what a treat it was. It's rather hard to define her musical style. I'll try. A blend of gospel, blues, folk, singer-songwriter, jazz and a bit of soul. According to her bio she's either from  D.C. or NYC and she now lives in LA. There isn't a lot of info on the net about her, but she released her first CD in 2008. She was nominated for  Grammy and subsequently released an EP in 2013. That's about it. Enjoy!

Shakin' all over!

What an amazing voice. If you grew up hearing Janis Joplin, you can relate to this amazing voice. I'm not going to say anything other than give her a listen.
