What are people saying about Lea? 'When Lea Gilmore sings the Blues, she tells the truth. She belongs to the old school of moaners, shouters and wailers. She doesn't just entertain. She takes over the stage, plants her feet, puts her hands on her hips, opens her mouth and let's fly the ancient magic of Blues women like Sippie Wallace, Bertha Chippie Hill and Ma Rainey. Lea makes this old music new again. She doesn't just sing you the song. She tells you the story.' Award Winning Blues Master Musician Guy Davis'' What are people saying about 'Classically Blue?' ' It was a magical evening. The Eubie Blake Center was overflowing and ready to party. When Lea Gilmore took the stage, electricity filled the air, taking us on a musical journey that was inspired from the first note to the last. Ms, Gilmore is one of this generation's finest singers and performers and activists. With a quick wit and heart melting smile, she delivers from gut-bucket blues to torch songs with a soul-stirring grace. This recording will be a collector's item, and we were honored to be a part.'
