#26 Enocre: Karla Chisholm - Celebrates Eva Cassidy

Blues Alley

1073 Wisconsin Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20007

Karla Chisholm

Prepare to dine on a roller coaster of emotions, rising and falling with Karla as she shares her syncopated journey of life and love. This unique songstress and soul has ignited a musical fuse that is sure to be the hottest new face of the music industry.

Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of Eva Cassidy @ Blues Alley

The sound of her voice is full of delicious contrasts. It's strong and strident, but soft and smooth as caramel when it drops down to the breathy low register. She pulls dead-accurate notes seemingly out of thin air, the way Ella did, but then she'll swing breezily into soul mode, bending and smearing blue notes so naturally you think you're hearing Aretha. And then there's seeing Karla Chisholm live -- a whole different story. A lithe, slender girl in a cocktail dress with an adorable pixie hairdo, belting out standards and jazzed-up soul covers with such aplomb, such strength, that it almost seems unreal. Karla can channel Dinah Washington in one tune, then Mavis Staples in the next, then the breezy lightness of the Andrews Sisters in the next.
