‘PROBABLY TOO INTIMATE’ MINI-TOUR
COMING SOON WITH PERFORMANCES AT THE VIPER ROOM AND HOTEL CAFE
After record snowfall in the Nashville area this past week rising singer-songwriter Lou Ridley braced the elements to share a raw and powerful cover of Soul icon Etta James’s hit track “At Last.” The surprise share to her Instagram page stamps the first musical performance of the year ahead of her upcoming ‘Probably Too Intimate’ mini-tour.
Ridley pays tribute to the late singer’s influence stating “Etta James “At Last” has always been one of my favorite songs. Etta and Billie helped shape my appreciation for singing from a place of pain. These women and many others overcame extreme adversity and you can hear it in the way they sing.” Also stating that the cover contains “no tune, no pre-recording, and no cheating.”
The self-proclaimed “Anti-Country” country & soul artist, a phrase rooted in Ridley’s desire to help country music become more inclusive & relatable, released her sophomore EP Angel/Outlaw this past December that featured standout tracks like “Blinde Eye” and “Delivered.” The project went on to garner praise from People Magazine (earning a comparison to Lady Gaga), E! News, Wide Open Country, Sounds Like Nashville, Beyond The Stage, and many more.
