Jessie Wagner has released a new single– a cover of the early 1960’s classic “Cry To Me” by soul singer Solomon Burke. The track serves to tide fans over until the release of her sophomore solo LP on Wicked Cool Records in late 2023/early 2024.
Of her upbeat, doo-wop-flavored take on the beloved song, Wagner says “Ever since I saw Patrick Swayze gently sway Jennifer Grey in his beautifully sculpted arms to Solomon Burke’s “Cry To Me,” I was immediately obsessed with this sensual song. It continues to be one of my favorites, and I am ecstatic to release my take on this sexy classic.”
The in-demand touring vocalist has shared stages with the likes of Lenny Kravitz, Chic, Duran Duran, Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul) and is the frontwoman for NYC rock/soul band Army of the Underdog. She released her critically acclaimed debut solo album ‘Shoes Droppin‘ in 2020.
