Bette Smith - The Good The Bad And The Bette

A rugged, chugging southern soul record... Like Betty Davis or Betty Wright before her, she imbues tracks with shingly, sawtoothed texture, capable of breaking off a high note with a throaty cry or scraping so low and wide that she threatens to put her bass player out of work." - Billboard

“Her dreams are big. Her personality is big. And her band is big. Hear them wail…” - NPR World Café

“Smith’s belated debut taps exquisitely into vintage southern soul with a voice as huge as her Angela Davis afro and a raunchy rasp and scrape that channels Mavis Staples, Etta James and Macy Gray.” - Uncut
