Capturing the true spirit of singer, pianist, and activist Nina Simone is no easy feat, given that she was known for constantly moving boundaries both musical and political. But having spent years performing Simone's music - and having a personal connection to her - Ledisi could be rightfully touted as the heir to her 'High Priestess of Soul' title. Ledisi credits Simone's music for saving her life, recalling in this album's liner notes, 'I heard her when I was still very young - in Oakland in my twenties. I was depressed, my life was a mess, and I heard her on the radio singing 'Trouble in Mind.' . (T)hat song woke me up . Nina's voice said to me I was not alone'.
