about

Lucinda Slim is a side project of Zap Mama's Nia Saw.

Next to recording and touring the world with Zap Mama for almost 2 decades she's also shared the stage with Youssou N'Dour, Erykah Badu, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Sharon Jones. All this time she's been an avid record collector, with a clear preference for northern soul, deep funk and rhythm & blues.
Her friendship with legendary collector and DJ Keb Darge (they met in the early 90's) led to 2 compilation albums and numerous DJ-residencies alongside Darge throughout London, such as the long established Deep Funk night at Madame Jojo's.

Her very first solo release "All This Time", turned out to be modfather Paul Weller's favorite tune for his Mojo Magazine top 5 in 2009.

During a stay in Belgium, she assembled a top notch 4-man band, went through arrangements and rehearsals and recorded a solid album live in just 2 days. The Haggis Horns later added their magic in Leeds (UK).

The band represents Belgium's finest musicians : New Orleans Jazz-aficionado Frederik Vandenberghe on drums and percussion, groove expert Matthias Debusschere on bass, key wizard Peter Lesage (Jesse Boykins III, Moiano) on piano & Wurlitzer and jazzcat Bruno De Groote on guitar. Production and mixdown were handled by krewcial (BBE, Blue Note Records).

Performing with the UK's premier horn section The Haggis Horns (Amy Winehouse, Corinne Bailey Rae, Jamiroquai) and touring with Sharon Jones & The Dapkings gave Lucinda the experience and final push to record her own proper solo album.

The album features 8 songs. Co-written with Keb Darge and Gabriel Roth from Daptone Records, including cover versions of "Two Winters Long" by Irma Thomas and "You Don't Mean It" by Towanda Barnes.

The vinyl release of this album was successfully crowdfunded mid 2015.
