Arriving at a New Crossroad...

Once you've heard "I Want" ... you will!

Visit the Gigs Page to see Stills and Video from Marla BB's latest show.

"Ms. BB chanted in synagogue as a preteen, had classical voice and jazz vocal training and eventually played blues clubs around the world. She's taught improvisational theater and self-defense — she trained in the martial arts — and even hosts her own radio show. Vocally trained though she may be, she obviously isn't afraid to chuck the lessons out the window when the spirit moves her, as it often does.... Her new album "Destiny Meets Devil at the Crossroads" pulls out all the stops like few records dare!" • Ken Maiuri, Daily Hampshire Gazette, Northampton MA
