Miss Freddye is well known for bringing Motown to the Steel City. “Wade in the Water,” her latest single, is a soulful gospel ballad that lives up to her lofty reputation. A 3 time winner of the Iron City Rocks award for Best Blues Band, Miss Freddye’s voice speaks, or sings, for itself. Harkening back to greats like Koko Taylor and Etta James, Miss Freddye pays tribute to the past while maintaining a sound all her own. On “Wade in the Water,” Miss Freddye is joined by a beautiful choir and is accompanied by a duo of keyboard players, one on the piano, another on the Hammond organ. The combination is powerful and haunting as Miss Freddye and Co. warns us that “God is gonna trouble the water.” “Wade in the Water” is just a taste of what’s to come for Miss Freddye as she is due for a full length release in 2021.
