Ginger is an esteemed singer and songwriter & spiritual activist from the Delaware Valley (southern NJ) who embraces many of the genres that have grown from the honest roots of American blues: R&B, funk and even reggae, gospel, and jazz make their presence known throughout her performances and recordings. Soul music for conscious souls is her self proclaimed genre. Watching a set with her is like a hangout session with your best friend, one you haven’t seen in ages, yet as soon as you get together, you continue the last conversation like the chasm of time and distance never existed. Vocally she attacks with attitude and wisdom, framing her lyrics with a rebellious demeanor and an open heart. Ginger possesses an arresting presence on stage, and a sophisticated understanding of her fore-bearers.
