Di Anne Price & Her Boyfriends at Huey's Midtown

A couple of weeks ago, I interviewed Greenville, Mississippi, blues piano player and singer Eden Brent — who has subsequently garnered multiple nominations for next spring's Blues Music Awards — for a Flyer feature. With no prompting, Brent gushed over the talents of Di Anne Price, a Memphis singer and musician whose own work is essentially in the same vein as Brent's, albeit far less celebrated. "Let me tell you something, that woman is my hero," Brent said. "I adore her. A friend in Memphis gave me her CD, and then I went to see her live, and I became mad about her. In the whole world — forget about Memphis — there aren't many piano players who can outplay her." I agree. Because Price plays so frequently but records so sparingly, she tends to be taken for granted. She might be the most soulful, most pleasurable musician in Memphis, regardless of stature or genre. You can catch Di Anne Price regularly at several local venues, including Itta Bena and Mollie Fontaine Lounge. She'll be joined by her ace backing band Sunday, December 26th, at Huey's Midtown, playing from 4 to 7 p.m.
