Meet LADY. Consisting of singing soulstresses Nicole Wray and Terri Walker, these ladies are bringing back that old school sound. Not since Amy Winehouse has our ears perked in excitement and anticipation for more retro-soul tunes.
Nicole is best known for being the first artist signed to industry veteran Missy Elliott‘s record label Gold Mine, garnering a top hit in the late 90s with “Make It Hot.” Her second album, Elektric Blue was shelved, even with a release of the single, “I’m Lookin.” Since then, she has worked with various artists in the industry, while still honing her songwriting talents.
As for Terri, the U.K. singer has released multiple international albums to critical acclaim; receiving a coveted Mercury Music Prize nomination. She met Nicole in NYC back in 2009 and they both connected over their love of soul classics.
Fast forward to now and both ladies have put together a beautiful self-titled debut album out on Truth&Soul Records. With melodic and catchy songs like, “If You Wanna Be My Man,” “Sweet Lady,” “Get Ready,” and “Money.” They are definitely on to something refreshing.
