Continuing to defy categorization, Black Blondie plays an earthy, jazz and funk-informed R&B that is as irresistible as it is hard to describe. City Pages’ Best R&B Artist of 2009, BB released their first album, Do You Remember Who You Wanted to Be?, in April 2009.

What Other People Have Been Saying...
“The Minneapolis foursome are together a shining example of the soul-filled creativity coming out of the Midwest. With or without the beehives. Sounds like: Esthero and Amy Winehouse living inside Betty Boop’s head.” -URB Magazine
“Samahra, Draper, and Baron (along with recently departed drummer Kahlil Brewington) mash together alternative R&B, dub, ’80s synth rock, hip hop, and more. The result is a sound that is genuinely—honestly—unique, but that maintains an organic, seamless sensibility.”-Michael L. Walsh, City Pages
