Ann Nesby Living My Life will be released June 3rd, 2014
“I love to perform. I love to see people come in ‘down’ but then leave a show with joy. I love meeting people and sharing my gifts. I enjoy the ovations when people have been touched. I love to share with the foundations I work with to give back and help young artists to establish their careers and get jobs in the industry. I enjoy giving back and being a part of the evolution of music.” —Ann Nesby From new jack swing to electronic dance music (EDM), few have survived and even thrived during that musical evolution as gracefully and fearlessly as Ann Nesby. The phrase “living legend” gets indiscriminately bandied about quite a bit these days. Yet, in the case of singer/songwriter Ann Nesby, on her 25th anniversary in the music business, nothing less than such effusive language will do. With a storied career that includes two GRAMMY Award wins with the Twin Cities-based Sounds of Blackness collective and six nominations since embarking on her solo career in 1996, Nesby has toured with Luther Vandross, had duet smashes with Sting (“Demolition Man”) and Al Green (“Put It On Paper”), written a Top 10 R&B hit for Patti Labelle (“Right Kinda Lover”) and a soul classic (“Home Alone”) on Gladys Knight’s last gold-seller. Even Nesby’s dues paying session work was with such luminaries as Janet Jackson and Alexander O’Neal. In other words, Ann Nesby has worked among the best as one of the best almost from day one.This living legend returns on June 3 with her first new album in five years, and it is a gem. Living My Life is an album that features that one-of-a-kind voice in a variety of settings that show how the right singer can be both classic and contemporary at the same time.
