Ledisi to visit Chicago’s “The Music Experience” Jun 17, 2011


SONGBIRD OFFERS ATTENDEES PIECES OF HERSELF WITH NEW ALBUMCHICAGO NATURAL HAIR CARE PROVIDER CELEBRATES WITH ONE DAY “EXPERIENCE” DEMO New York (May 20, 2011) Four-time Grammy nominee, Ledisi, will visit Dedry Jones’ “The Experience” for her fourth feature with the platform on  Friday, June 17, 2011 at The Harold Washington Cultural Center in Chicago.  Considered one of the more popular Experience artists to date, the New Orleans native will discuss and perform songs from her overly anticipated sixth studio album “Pieces of Me”!Following the success of her critically acclaimed album “Turn Me Loose”, fans can expect the same diversity in sound when listening to “Pieces of Me”. But the new album offers more transparency and “is based around songwriting. It's very R&B, but not completely,” says Ledisi. “I always have to push it again. You won't hear the heavy guitars anymore - you will hear a really nice sound from me.”Bursting with songs of love, intimacy and self-assurance and delivered by an unmatched voice at the top of its game, this album marks Ledisi's shining moment. The poignant title track is an introspective look at a woman discovering her unique offerings to the world. Ledisi sings, "Like every woman I know/ I'm complicated for sure/But when I love/I love till there's no love no more." "That's what a woman does," she states. "That is power and strength. It's okay to celebrate being a woman."With two sold out appearances under her belt, Ledisi continually offers attendees of The Experience a glimpse into her creative process and an uninhibited bird’s eye view into her world as an artist and as a woman.  To preview the title track and lead single from “Pieces of Me”, click here: http://www.myspace.com/ledisi.The Experience with Ledisi is taking place at The Harold Washington Cultural Center in Chicago at 7pm (doors open at 6:30pm).
