Blues magazine heralds life, times and influence of Virginia's Gaye Adegbalola

Gaye Adegbalola is on the cover of what she calls “THE magazine in the blues world,” looking sassy as ever. Her lips are pursed and her glasses are pulled slightly down her nose, maybe so she can gaze right back at anyone who gives her the once-over. While her trademark white hair covers half the publication’s nameplate, her name is big and bold with the description “Trailblazer” beneath it.

Gaye Adegbalola Adds Another Page to Her Musical Career

With her former band, Saffire – The Uppity Blues Women, Gaye Adegbalola sang the “Middle Aged Blues Boogie:” “Seems that when you reach around middle age, you don’t want a final chapter, you want to write another page!” True to her lyrics, the Virginia-based singer, guitarist, teacher and activist (with roots in Harlem’s Black Power movement) has embarked on a vibrant solo career. From new originals about contemporary public figures like John Lewis and Kamala Harris to covers of the great blues women of the past who inspire her to comedic novelty songs, Adegbalola isn’t writing another page: she’s singing it.
