ST. PETERSBURG – Singer-songwriter Janiva Magness, 2013 Blues Music Award-winner, will be performing her eleventh studio album, Original, Saturday, Aug. 23, at the Ringside Café in St. Petersburg.
The eleven-song album begins with her classic soul sound on "Let Me Breathe" as she does not shy away from her emotions. Magness gets her R&B groove going on "Twice As Strong," but gets back to her roots on the clap/stomp rhythm of "I Need A Man." She grooves to the sweet R&B flavor of "Everything Is Alright," before pouring her heart into climbing the slow blues of "Mountain." She ventures into the Americana feel of "Badass" with huge success, before closing with the emotionally filled "Standing."
Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 day of show. Ringside Café is at 16 Second St. N., St. Petersburg. Call 727-894-8465.
