    Songs and Stories: Serabee
    10/18/2018 | 7:00 PM | "I was born on Saturday and singing on Sunday," as Sera so aptly puts it. “Music is in my blood, and the road I’ve traveled can’t help but form my music.” Sera hails direct from the Kiln, Mississippi with the wandering strains of roadhouse blues and rollicking revivals psychically embedded in her songs. Irresistible, pop, country and R&B adorned in her soulful vocal presence and piano playing. As a singer, songwriter and musician, the creative edge of Sera points to this soulful artist deep roots and colorful background in the American South. Growing up the daughter of a Pentecostal minister father (always a bluesman at heart) and singer/songwriter mother, Sera was raised on the music of Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Sam Cooke, Bob Dylan, Dolly, Aretha and of course, good ole gospel music. Realizing her musical ambition at an early age, she traveled with her family’s tent revival, leading the musical praise and worship, excelling on the Hammond B-3 organ and piano. Striking out on her own, Sera began performing in New Orleans & Mississippi clubs where she garnered quite a local following. The soulful songstress created two independent recordings catching the attention of veteran music industry executives, Doug Morris , Gary Katz and LA Reid. She was signed to major label Universal and Sony where she released an EP (Serabee) and had the ITunes single of the week, “Driving Me Stupid.” She also became a finalist on the first season of “The Voice” as Serabee on Blake Shelton's team. As a naturally gifted songwriter, with a strong commercial appeal, Sera penned the number one smash “Crazy Chick” for platinum sensation Charlotte Church in Europe and has since been writing with the hit makers in Nashville, London and New York for years. Sera recently returned home to record her latest album, drawing on her natural ability and southern heritage and without the interruption of major label politics. She says it will be very poignant and nostalgic, The prodigal daughter returning home from major label deals and touring the world to embrace her roots to record what she calls "the front porch songs" in a historical 1920s church turned studio in New Orleans. Recorded with a live studio audience! Day/Date: Thursday, October 18th Time: 7:00 PM Price: Free Admission, thanks to the R&B Feder Foundation.
