JANIVA MAGNESS TO PERFORM IN NEWMAN! “One of the most fiery and original vocalists in contemporary blues and soul…thoughtful, inventive and almost unerringly on the money.” –MOJO

Award-winning blues and soul artist Janiva Magness, touring in support of her latest Alligator Records CD, STRONGER FOR IT, will give a live performance at the West Side Theatre in Newman on Saturday, July 27, 2013. A charismatic vocalist and songwriter known for her electrifying live shows, Magness is among the premier blues and R&B singers in the world today; her voice possesses an earthy, raw honesty born from her life experience. Magness recently won two 2013 Blues Music Awards: Contemporary Blues Female Artist Of The Year (her fourth win in this category) and Song Of The Year–I Won’t Cry (by Janiva Magness and Dave Darling) from STRONGER FOR IT. She also won the 2009 Blues Music Award for B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year (she is only the second woman to ever win this award, Koko Taylor being the first). Through her passionate vocals and, for the first time, through her own original songs, Magness, with STRONGER FOR IT, delivers the most moving and intimate album of her career.
