The sassy Lauriana Mae is the newest fixture blending old school jazz and soul with a new age R&B and hip hop appeal. Drawing influences from Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Etta James, the singer/songwriter will be releasing her catchy Love Mae EP on December 6th.
On "Money Mae," she showcases a vocal style reminiscent of N'Dea Davenport on some Brand New Heavies ish. Take a listen to her YouTube EP sampler yourself - we're already stomping into the floor and making a few dents hearing this bad mama.
