Singing the Chicago style blues since 1996, I have become known as “Pittsburgh’s Lady of the Blues!” My influences are Delta and Chicago style blues, from artists of yester-year like Koko Taylor, Etta James, Big Mama Thornton, Bessie Smith, Sarah Vaughn, Denise Lasalle, and Memphis Minnie.
I started singing with BMW (Blues music works) headed by Al “Big Al” Leavitt. In 2002, I formed my own band, “Blue Faze.” The next several years the name changed to “Miss Freddye’s Blues Band.”
In addition to my 5-piece electric band, I started Miss Freddye’s Homecookin Trio in 2010. An acoustic side of blues! I perform with both bands around western and central PA, West Virginia &eastern Ohio.
In 2008, my band competed in the West Virginia blues competition, won for the state, and went to the 2009 International blues competition representing the WVBS!
In 2012, I competed in the Blues society of western PA as a duo act with my band mate and guitarist Greg “G-man” Casile, and won! In 2013, we went to Memphis for the IBCs representing BSWPA.
