Francine Reed:  "Wild Women Don't Get The Blues" with Lyle Lovett's Large Band

"Absolutely love Francine Reed, have been so fortunate to be able to see her play at a night club in Phx. Az every weekend for a few years in the 1980s. She had Prince Shell on the piano a true virtuoso and musician friends from all over stopping in to join her". — @aleksandraalexander4506

FRANCINE REED:  No Time For The Blues

Francine Reed is an American blues singer, solo artist, and regular singing partner of Lyle Lovett since the 1980s and member of Lovett's Large Band. Reed has also recorded duets with Willie Nelson and Delbert McClinton and others.

In Phoenix, Arizona, Francine Reed appeared with Miles Davis, Stanley Jordan, Smokey Robinson, Etta James, and The Crusaders. In 1985, she began recording and touring with Lyle Lovett and His Large Band. Reed has also appeared on recordings by Delbert McClinton, Willie Nelson and Roy Orbison.

Reed has received the W. C. Handy Artist of the Year and Song of the Year nominations. (The W. C. Handy awards were renamed the Blues Music Awards in 2006). Reed was inducted into the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame in 1997.

In the mid-1990s she moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where she frequently performed at Blind Willie's in the Virginia-Highland neighborhood. In 2016 Francine moved back to Phoenix and retired from touring — but she has never given up singing or her "wild woman" ways.
