A conversation with Lorette Velvette

It is impossible to offer an accurate view of Memphis music without including Lorette Velvette. Reared in Savannah, Tennessee, she migrated to Memphis as a teen and quickly found her way into the local underground arts scene. Her first performance was playing alongside blues legend, She-Wolf Jessie Mae Hemphill. Listen in as we talk about that and more on this episode of Memphis Weirdos.
