WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 6, 2013 – Universally regarded as the Queen of Soul, Erykah Badu will grace her dedicated legion of Australian fans with headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne following her Bluesfest appearances.

Since the beginning of her reign singer, songwriter, producer, director and actor Badus unique approach to soul has redefined the genre, described as a mix of traditional soul vocals, staccato hip-hop rhythms and a laid-back jazzy groove by The New York Times.

Badus impressive discography has dominated the charts throughout her 16-year career and garnered multiple Grammy Awards. Her 1997 debut album Baduizm debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts, earning multi-platinum sales and two Grammys: Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Album. Her sharp-wit and social-conscious song-writing style responsible for producing the hit songs On & On, Tyrone and Window Seat is only surpassed by her electrifying stage presence and soulful vocal ability.

Reasons to believe Badu to be one of the best R&B performers of her generation have never been in short supply; tonight, she only confirms them. The Guardian UK (2012)

Born Erica Wright in Dallas, Texas, Badu christened herself after her favourite jazz-scat sound, ba-du. Her vocal ability is unsurpassed and has often been likened to jazz legend Billie Holliday. Her iconic status as a leader of the neo-soul revolution has been confirmed by the respect she has received from the new generation of RnB revolutionaries. At this years BET Awards, rapper Kendrick Lamar (winner of Best New Artist and Best Male Hip Hop Artist on the night) fulfilled a long harboured dream to work with Badu when she joined him on stage to perform his hit single Bitch Dont Kill My Vibe and stole the show.

Badus latest album, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh, debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart and Rolling Stone named it as one of 2010s best albums of the year.

Badus 2012 Australian tour saw her play to sold-out crowds and received rave reviews; Inthemix proclaiming: Erykah Badu truly tore the roof off the Opera House tonight: Long live the Queen.
