JAZZ: Jazz Vocals, URBAN/R&B: Rhythm & Blues
With strong vocal spices of Chaka, the erotic smoothness of Sade and articulate breath of Ella, VEEDA (age 27), has an impeccable style that is long anticipated. Born a "Mack" diva, with powerhouse vocals, VEEDA''s original music will cause you to tune your ear to the smoothness of perfect pitch in the key of Jazzy erotic "E". Many accolade her sound as an "R&B/jazz refined gumbo" that flourishes into a dynamic eccentric resonance that undoubtedly classifies her as a contemporary urban stylist.
With the debut of her CD, Love''s Anatomy, VEEDA''s interpretion of standards like Inner City Blues (Makes Me Wanna Holler/Marvin Gaye) and lyrical dedicational revision of Mr."Grover" Magic/Grover Washington, both songs will "make you wanna" dance as well as remember the best from late and great artists of the past. The CD, also reveals her excellent penmanship of profound lyrics and melodic structures delivered in her incredible flexible alto range and rich timbre in her originals, Love''s Anatomy, Young Mothers, Jessel''s Song and So Ya'' Say. The CD absolutely promises a little something for every ear, regardless of age.
As one fan recently stated in an email, "VEEDA has a gift. It is almost as if a spirit comes straight from above out of her mouth. It is difficult to explain. But, I could hear something other than the lyrics and music … there is just this feeling."
