Cee Cee James - photo by Margene SchotzIf you have ever caught Cee Cee James onstage, you know that she is a force of nature. With vocal power ready to explode and catch you breathless, this is a driving performer who commands her audiences every time she steps to a microphone. Her music is personal, as all great blues should be. The winner of the Blues Blast Award in 2013 for her song “I Got A Right To Sing The Blues,” co-written with her husband and guitarist Rob “Slideboy” Andrews, is just one example of the talented repertoire she possesses. Her interaction with her audiences also makes for an engaging show not to be missed.
