CEE CEE JAMES and the MISSION OF SOUL
Take a lifetime of heartache and loss starting at birth and gift it with a lyric writing style that is filled with an honesty so vulnerable that it catches the most hardened heart off guard, knocking that back with a shot of WHISKEY DRENCHED VOCALS and a sweat dripping, take no prisoners performance, and you have one hell of a Blues Woman.
Dubbed the VOCAL VOLCANO by Robert Horn from the Washington Blues Society, Cee Cee has been singing and writing songs for 20 years gathering up stellar reviews and awards from all three CD's she has released. "SPIRITUALLY WET," her first pop/funk CD took home the LOS ANGELES INDEPENDENT ARTIST OF THE YEAR AWARD and the first cut was honored as one of the TOP 10 in the JOHN LENNON SONGWRITING COMPETITION before she put the project to rest in 2002 after some intense life changes and fell face down and Soul up into the Blues.
