Listen as DJ Carmie interviews southern soul singer Nellie Travis. Nellie is well known for her tracks " Mr. Sexy Man" and "Slap Yo Weave Off". In November 2009 Nellie was crowned the New Queen Of The Blues for Chicago by Bluesman and WVON radio personality Purvis Spann, who previously had bestowed that honor on Ms. KoKo Taylor. KoKo was a mentor and friend to Nellie, and when she passed in early 2009 Nellie used her songwriting skills to write and record a tribute to her friend entitled “KoKo” (Queen Of The Blues). This soulful tune was also performed and used to eulogize Koko as part of her last rites and is on Nellie’s I'm Going Out Tonight album. She fronts one of the tightest Chicago Blues bands found anywhere in the world, comprised of the best musicians from Chicago’s Blues scene, and her shows in the city are packed, rollicking parties. Nellie Travis has headlined at the Chicago Blues Festival and at festivals and clubs around the world. From Japan, Greece, Italy, Germany, Brazil, all the way back to her home in Mississippi, Nellie knocks out audiences with her powerful vocals and irresistible stage charisma. She’s a permanent headlining personality at Chicago’s most successful blues clubs, The Kingston Mines, Buddy Guy’s Legends and Blue Chicago where she continues to pack them in. Get to hear what advice Nellie Travis has for the up and coming artists.
