Following the release of her second solo album (‘Ruthless Day’, Jalapeno Records), the 'Golden Girl of Funk' returns to Hideaway with her trademark high octane soul sound.
And being tagged ‘The Golden Girl of Funk’ is a title well deserved for the singer-song writer who stormed from obscurity onto the funk scene as the front woman of Hamburg-based outfit, The Mighty Mocambos.
Her latest album, ‘Ruthless Day’, is an energetic and harmonically rich, funk record with exciting arrangements that at times evokes the sound of Rotary Connection and Cymande in their prime yet also undeniably modern and relevant.
The golden girl of funk? Damn right! Gizelle Smith is a force to be reckoned with.
