“Music is powerful and can reach billions, no matter the genre,” singer Lemetrius “Leme” Nolan told encore back in January 2020.
Nolan’s own style varies and includes jazz, gospel, country, funk, soul and R&B. She hones her grasp of each, as heard during her gospel number “Standing in Your Glory” or country track “The Smell of Freedom.” “I don’t just fit into one genre because I love them all,” she noted about her work.
Like everyone else whose 2020 plans were placed on hold due to COVID, Nolan is finding ways to perform. She will be at Long Leaf Park (formerly Hugh MacRae Park) under shelter 6 this Saturday from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Nolan’s 2019 EP “Love with a Ring Attached,” produced by Antoine Carmichael (a.k.a. Carmichael Musiclover), takes a clear turn with three original funk/R&B songs. The title track’s music video matches the song’s throwback 1970s’ vibe, with aesthetics and dance-hall setting. It has a funky beat meant to get toes tapping and hips swaying.
Folks can hear signature R&B soul this Saturday evening and find more details at the Facebook event page.
