As a fifteen-year-old in Virginia, Lady Wray auditioned for Missy Elliot in her mother’s home. With her voice already full and arresting, Missy signed her on the spot. Soon after, her breakout single, Make It Hot, was certified gold. Fast forward to now: she’s a mother, a wife, and living for herself and her family. So, naturally, this evolution has changed her music: she sings how she wants to, expertly writing lyrics for herself and others. Her latest record, Piece of Me, released in 2022 is, on the one hand, a continuation, picking up where she and label co-owner/producer Leon Michels left off with the comeback album Queen Alone. But Piece of Me is also a homecoming for Lady Wray, showcasing her signature take on R&B with a heavy dose of soul while infusing the dynamic boom-bap sound and energy of her earliest music. 


We're thrilled to offer free jazz programming for the entire festival, so that everyone has the opportunity to experience this music. Please support us if you can.
