ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
LATRESA
singer/songwriter

Music has always been LaTresa's first love. She began performing professionally in high school with a series of bands. Her father, a singer/songwriter Church of Christ minister, moved the family around the heart of Dixie a lot. Hers was, at times, a hard-scrabble childhood, as her parents struggled to put food on the table and clothing on their backs. Along the way she soaked up influences from the Mississippi Delta to Memphis to the Bluegrass of Kentucky and beyond.

After working her way through college, she augmented her musical income with modeling and acting jobs in movies, theater, and television. She's also a professional narrator and print model.

Her music combines influences from the many places her youth has taken her. She connects, delighting audiences with solid professional performances. She's spent four years on Music Row, soaking up its songwriting expertise and production sounds.

She recently released her first Nashville CD, Free Spirit, which features her material backed by some of the finest pickers in the Southeast. It has received excellent reviews. Dave Higgs, producer and host of syndicated radio's Bluegrass Breakdown, says it's a "project chock full of interesting tunes, great arrangements, and fine picking, all propelled by LaTresa's unforgettable emotive and shimmering voice...great stuff."

Bill Gamble of Americana Music Place adds, "We don't have the space to fully express the pleasure we received listening to this beautiful new release...LaTresa's words, voice, and arrangements, backed by a great group of musicians makes this a 5-star album."

The Nashville Music Guide reviewer Brad Fischer writes, "...this venture into bluegrass with a contemporary twist will have your foot atappin' to the wistful slow ballads and up-beat tunes alike. LaTresa's beautiful vocals enhanced by some of Nashville's finest musicians give justice to her soulful lyrics on all twelve cuts. If you're into bluegrass at all, you've got to have this CD in your collection. It's definitely a keeper!"

LaTresa hit the ground performing in Tennessee, starting the day she relocated from Kentucky, doing solo spots with her vintage Martin guitar or taking on larger audiences with her exceptional band. She is a hard worker and a world-class entertainer, and continues to move forward to bigger and better things.
