      Bio

      For Ledisi, singing her soul over funked-out R&B tracks just comes naturally. The New Orleans native has been a neo-soul mainstay for the better part of the last decade and she is hoping that her fifth album will make her a household name. She will release "Pieces of Me" this June, 2011 and will tour in support of the album. Ledisi tour dates are currently available and tickets are on sale.

      Ledisi was born into a musical family, and she drew inspiration from her soul-singer mother and the rich cultural history of Louisiana. She began performing with the New Orleans Symphony Orchestra where she honed her vocal ability before moving to Oakland to enroll at the University of California - Berkley. She studied opera and piano for several years before forming the group Anibade in the late '90s. The group recorded a demo and shopped it around to all the major labels, but was unable to secure a deal.

      After her stint with Anibade, Ledisi decided to go solo and she released her debut album "Soulsinger: The Revival," on her own independent label, LeSun Records. In support of the album, she re-teamed with Anibade and toured the country, however, the album didn't make an impact on the charts. She released her sophomore set, "Feeling Orange but Sometimes Blue", in 2002 and was able to garner some national attention and acclaim. In 2003, the album won her the California Music Award for Outstanding Jazz Album and her songs were licensed out to commercials.

      Ledisi went on a five year hiatus before signing a major-label deal with Verve Records. She released "Lost & Found" in 2007 and the album quickly made an impact on the Billboard charts. The album spawned the singles "Alright" and "Think of You", and peaked at #10 on the R&B albums survey. She gained mainstream attention when she was nominated for two awards at the 2008 Grammy's, including Best New Artist and Best R&B album for "Lost and Found". Ledisi tour dates were scheduled in support of the album and in light of the critical attention that she was receiving.

      She went on to release her fourth and most recent album, "Turn Me Loose", in 2008. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard R&B Charts and featured production by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis as well as Raphael Saddiq. The album was nominated for Best R&B album and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for the single "Goin' Thru Changes", at the 2010 Grammy Awards.

      Ledisi will release "Pieces of Me" this June, 2011 and will tour in support of the album. Ledisi concert dates are currently scheduled nationally with R&B crooner, Kem, this 2011. She is redefining neo-soul with her jazz infused melodies and silky smooth vocals. Use Eventful as your source for Ledisi tour dates and concert schedule information.
