Since scoring a top-10 hit with "That's My Man" in 1966, Marion James is a true R&B pioneer. At one time, her band included a young guitarist by the name of Jimi Hendrix and bassist Billy Cox. Now in 2012, Marion hasn't slowed down one bit. Northside Soul is her second release in less than 9 years. She's still writing and performing her own material with the same desire and passion. Her rich voice reveals a life of not just writing about the blues, but living it as well.
