Smith, vocalist and bandleader of the Red Hot Skillet Lickers, has become known as a modern day Jazz and Blues diva with a singing style influenced by Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, Bessie Smith and Little Esther Phillips. Smith brings a bluesy jolt of energy to the jazz/country crossroads, delivering jazz and blues-steeped arrangements of Cline’s songs.
