Today it was our privilege to chat to Pittsburgh’s “Leading Lady of the Blues” on the Drive Zone.

She started singing in church at a young age. The influence of church and her mother’s love of the Blues gave Miss Freddye the beginning to venture in the world of Blues Music in 1996. She joined BMW(Blues  Music  Works) under the direction of Big AL Leavitt.  In 2002, Miss Freddye formed her own band,  “Blue Faze”. Several years later, she became Miss Freddye’s Blues Band and Miss Freddye’s Homecookin’ Band.

Her Influences include: Koko Taylor,  Etta James, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday,  Big Mama Thornton,  Big AL Leavitt,  and Bessie Smith.
