Marva 1

2012 ended on a sad note. Before we start getting into our big plans for 2013, we wanted to pause for a moment to miss a recent friend who we lost too soon. Marva Whitney, Soul Sister #1, died in Kansas City on December 22nd. She had been fighting back from health problems resulting from her 2009 stroke. As we’ve gotten to know her over the last year, we learned that she had plans to perform again and even get back into the studio. A few of her later recordings (and the second act of her long story) are being documented currently for the notes accompanying our forthcoming Forte compilation (047 Eccentric Soul: The Forte Label.)

Check this excellent mix of Marva’s music, new and old.
