Leela James & Shanachie Entertainment to Release, “In The Spirit of Etta James” This Spring 2012

LEELA JAMES AND SHANACHIE ENTERTAINMENT JOIN FORCES TO PAY HOMAGE TO ROCK AND ROLL AND BLUES HALL OF FAMER
 ETTA JAMES



WITH IN THE SPIRIT OF ETTA JAMES DUE OUT SPRING 2012


Rock and Roll and Blues Hall of Famer Etta James possessed one of the most emotive, powerful and riveting voices in music.

Critically heralded young singer Leela James harnesses the same innate ability to communicate a song with great depth and emotion. Leela James, with her raw soulful voice, high-energy performances and wild-child image, is in many ways the “Etta James” of her generation, with some comparing Leela directly to the soul legend.
