Kiya Lacey Debut

Kiya Lacey

An Ella Fitzgerald Foundation award recipient, Kiya Lacey has opened for the likes of pop icon Brandy and performed to enthusiastic fans in venues both large and intimate. Her self-titled debut represents a classic American jazz, R&B, rock, and roots side of Lacey, and she is backed by a veritable troupe of Nashville heavyweights—including John Jackson (Bob Dylan), Mark T. Jordan (Van Morrison), George Marinelli, (Bonnie Raitt), Marco Giovino (Robert Plant), Bones Hillman (Midnight Oil), Jack Pearson (Allman Brothers), Ken Coomer (Wilco), Kenny Vaughan (Lucinda Williams), Brian Harrison (Shelby Lynne), and Vince Santoro (Roseanne Cash). Covering a waterfront of topics—from love, departure, and renewal to social concerns—Lacey summons the ghosts of Etta James, Josephine Baker, and other American icons, all while making each song very much her own.
