Gaye serves up “topical blues for topical times.” As a griot (gree-oh), she uses her honest vision of the world to record history — as she sees it — in song . . . stories like “(You’re)Flint Water, baby — dirty as you can be;” and I’ve been “Kaepernicked!”— now you are my new Muhammad Ali; and how “I’ll sacrifice my life to stop that FGM” (female genital mutilation); and yet there’s her signature humor in “3 Hour Shoes” and “Liearrhea.”

Industrial Blues is a new creation. Blues woman, Gaye, and her son, Juno (aka DJ Blacula – The Junabomber) collaborate and merge genres. Juno reworks Gaye’s traditional blues songs into programmed sounds with layered rhythms and textures. Gaye then performs her signature vocals with a totally different sound surrounding them. Blues Mama and her Black Son step boldly into unknown territory. This is their musical bloodline.
