About Queen Esther

“…a brutal, original, explosive singer.” — Vanity Fair

Grand Prize winner of the 2008 Jazzmobile Vocal Competition, Queen Esther continues to perform internationally with her mentor harmelodic guitarist James Blood Ulmer in various projects, including his iconic free jazz group Odyssey, as she forges her own sonic path with her jazz collective and her Black Americana outfit The Blue Crowns. Released in 2015, her critically acclaimed album The Other Side — “…the most exciting Afro-Americana album of the year” — is garnering airplay worldwide as she stands on the verge of releasing her jazz album Things Are Looking Up in the spring of 2018.
Recent performance highlights include: Under The Cherry Parade in a Day (You Sexy MF): Burnt Sugar Freaks Prince’s Post Purple Rain Songbook at the David Rubenstein Atrium/Lincoln Center; Hot Jazz Age: From the First Jazz Recording to the Dawn of Swing at Dizzy’s/Lincoln Center; The Philadelphia Folk Festival; The Brooklyn Americana Music Festival and The Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island.
