Mahalia Barnes & The Soul Mates - Ooh Yea! – The Betty Davis Songbook

Powerhouse singer Mahalia Barnes, one of the most impressive female vocalists to come out of Australia, has teamed up with American blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa to release an album of Betty Davis covers called Ooh Yea! – The Betty Davis Songbook. It explores tracks from Davis’ sexy, raw funk records of the early ‘70s.

“I have been a fan of Betty Davis for years now,” said Barnes. “I can remember the first time I heard her stuff, I was hooked! She is wild, free, nasty, raw, funky, intense, powerful and sexy. I’ve always wanted to make a record that sounds like what she was doing.”
