Few vocalists own the stage like Terri Odabi. When the statuesque Oakland native begins to sing, a hush falls over audience members. They're about to take a ride on the highs and lows of soul music delivered by a beautiful singer who packs her shows with both high energy and quiet poignancy. Odabi's finely honed instrument is matched only by her generous spirit and wit. She is a 2017 Blues Music Award Nominee for Best Female Artist, and her 2016 CD release My Blue Soul ranked in Living Blues's Top 50 Best Albums in 2016. Odabi performs original stirring blues straight from the soul with compelling arrangements and witty lyrics that appeal to a wide contemporary audience.
