URBAN/R&B: Soul, URBAN/R&B: Funk
With a voice that traverses the distance between earthy growl and angelic whisper at a moments notice, Felicia Loud is the Northwest's premier soul singer. Though frequently a guest on other artists' releases (such as Source of Labor's Word Sound Power and Stolen Lives), Felicia Loud comes into her own with Here, her debut release backed by her aptly named band, the Soul.
Featuring all-original music, Here is solid, slow-burning soul, with liberal doses of reggae, rock, funk, and hip-hop thrown in the mix. The album features guest appearances by celebrated members of the Seattle soul community, including Darrius Willrich (Das Rut, Jambalaya), Chris Littlefield (Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Cornicopia), Jon Ryser (Phat Sidy Smokehouse) and Elizabeth Pupo-Walker (Tuatara, Mana).
Look into my eyes, and watch as I say, "Felicia Loud is the best female vocalist in the Pacific Northwest." Notice how I didn't blink or flinch when making that bold claim. How could I be so certain, so confident? Because to say Felicia Loud is the best is to say these are my fingers or that is the sun or those are trees...If there was a God and the world was fair, then Erykah Badu would be unknown, and Felicia Loud would be the queen of soul.

With a voice of incredible richness and depth, Felicia Loud is the Northwest's premier soul singer. With the classic articulation and boldness of a Stax-era vocalist, backed up by spare, unconventional arrangements, she achieves an unusual yet powerful sound.
Loud has carved out a place for herself as the city's premier neo-soul diva. And a well-deserved place it is. Like Maktub's Reggie Watts, Loud bases herself in the grit and grind of Stax and the slow burn of Quiet Storm but incorporates the glistening swing of modern R&B.

What's in store, 2004? Who will you bless, and who distress? Telephone call for Felicia Loud - the big time, line 1. Ms. Loud recently sold out the roomy Triple Door. The Northwest isn't necessarily known for its soul, but Felicia could really get Loud. It's a long shot, but she could be the next Macy Gray.
