Gina Sicilia with Jane Fallon Opening (Blues)

Event Date: 
Friday, October 4, 2013 - 8:00pm

Young Philadelphia songstress Gina Sicilia exploded onto the scene in 2007, as her debut CD, Allow Me To Confess, was met with joyous acclaim by fans and critics alike. She was heralded as a distinctive new voice in the Blues, as well as an insightful songwriter and interpreter of neglected classics in the Rhythm & Blues canon. In 2008 she was nominated for "Best New Artist Debut" at the Blues Music Awards in Memphis, Tennessee, just as her sophomore release Hey Sugar proved her also to be a legitimate contender in the worlds of Classic Country and Americana. Gina's singing and songwriting continue to break new ground, showing remarkable depth, power, and seemingly unstoppable growth. 

With her new 2011 release, Can't Control Myself, Gina broadens her stylistic palette, infusing even more Soul and Americana into her bedrock influences of Blues and R&B. This CD features seven new Gina Sicilia compositions, as well as three choice covers borrowed from Bobby Bland, Stevie Wonder, and Ike & Tina Turner. Can't Control Myself was produced and engineered by Gina's label mate, the insanely talented Dave Gross, who also played every instrumental track on the record except for trumpet, sax, and one lap-steel track. www.ginasicilia.com

Now 25 years old, the genre-defying Gina Sicilia continues to smash pigeonholes into kindling and redefine the boundaries of soulful music. "...impressive range and depth ...she's going to get even better with age." -  Philadelphia Inquirer

Ticket Prices: $18 (Stu/Sen $17, Mem $15, Child U12 $9)
