Soul R&B Songstress Leela James Announces New “Are You Ready? Tour”

R&B soul singer Leela James is gearing up to hit the road this summer as she embarks on the 19-city “Are You Ready? Tour,” which starts June 21 in Covington, KY and culminates on July 18 in Glenside, PA, at the Keswick Theatre. The tour will make stops in New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Memphis, Nashville, Durham and a host of other cities. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 26 at 10 am local time. For more information on the tour and to find a city near you log onto www.facebook.com/LeelaJames.

Most recently, Leela James collaborated with The Truth Band on the new EP Are You Ready?, which features the buzzing lead single “That Woman” (click here). Elias Leight from RollingStone.com explains “Lead single “That Woman” is a vicious, extended crescendo: The singer and a three-piece rock group buck and crash and then retreat, only to return a moment later with redoubled vigor.” Leela debuted “That Woman” at the inaugural Black Girls Rock! Festival that was held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC on March 10. Her performance electrified the crowd with the lyrics, “I’m not ‘that woman’/You know my name/Don’t start this fire/You’ll go down in flames.”
