Georgia Anne Muldrow on Nu-Soul Mag

The unduplicatable vibe of Lady Muldrow, steeped in old soul, powerful but masterfully subdued and rechanneled in the life-fluid of futuristic veined and depth-inspired ether machina, graces us again with a new release: King's Ballad.

Peek at the gem Nu-Soul Mag has in store for you, below. Click the read more link for the full interview.


Nu-Soul: Congratulations on the new album. Can you tell me about recording it?
It was a very quick process. It was fun. I built a muscle for making records at the time. Dudley (Perkins, Muldrow’s partner) kept me on schedule and formatted the songs. He helped me work on each of the songs and decide what to keep and what not to keep. It was a real easy natural process.

Nu-Soul:You’ve been incredibly prolific. How does your creative process work and how have you been able to maintain such an output?
Well basically I couldn’t do it without Dudley’s support. He’s blessed my life in the sense that he’s allowed me to do this music full time and has done whatever he has to do to support me in that venture. He’s been very supportive and enabled me to focus on the music instead of doing a lot of the regular things like laundry, dishes and other family duties. He’s taken on many of those responsibilities so I could focus on the music. He’s the reason why, because he’s consumed so much of the things in my life that have allowed me to focus. It’s beautiful.

Nu-Soul:The title track is a tribute to Michael Jackson (whom I understand was a family friend). Do you have any special memories that you would like to share and how big of an impact did his music make on you?
One of the biggest things was on my mom’s (Rickie BB aka Rickie Bayers-Beckwith) album Supreme Inspiration in which he appeared and gave her his blessing with her music. I was so inspired by that and knew that we would be working with him soon. Unfortunately, he died after that. But it was also the producers Michael worked with. Michael and Quincy Jones had a beautiful chemistry that I hope to create with the artists I work with. Also, my mentor John Barnes taught me about working with people as a producer. He taught me about arranging stuff for other people and matching their vibes. It’s a very deep spiritual thing. This hip-hop lives in me because I can bring that, but I also love being a producer. Quincy Jones and John Barnes’ productions made me look at their records from a producer stand point and were very inspirational.
