With roots deep in the music of the African American tradition, vocalist
Rickett's unique blend of gospel, spirituals, jazz and blues is the
perfect compliment to her rich contralto voice. Ricketts is fast
becoming one of the Bay Area's favorite vocalists.
No stranger to the stage or the studio, Ricketts has performed with such
greats as the late Ed Kelly, Calvin Keys, Robert Stewart, Ricardo
Scales, Linda Rhondstadt, OIGC, Bill Bell, John Turk, Rhonda Benin, and
was a featured artist at San Rafael’s Throckmorton Theatre. She has
performed throughout the U.S. as well as South America, France and
Africa. In 2012 she performed at Carnegie Hall, and in 2014 was the
featured artist at Napa Valley’s Black Coyote Winery.
Ricketts is accompanied by Calvin Keys on guitar, George Spencer on
keyboards, Leon Joyce on drums and Mark Williams on bass.
