Break Down Your Wall

By: Laurie Gallardo

That wall’s gonna do you no good, baby. Break it down and let love in.

The Austin Music Minute celebrates #LoveAustinMusicMonth with longtime AMM favorite, Latasha Lee & The Black Ties. Today’s featured track, “Break Down Your Wall,” features songwriter and vocalist Lee sounding better than ever, remaining true to the giants who influence her sound – Aretha, Etta, Sam Cooke – while completely owning the emotional fire that ignites her songs.

It will do you good to see Latasha Lee & The Black ties at their show tonight at The Continental Club, 1315 S. Congress Ave. Very special guest, the eternally legendary “Soulman” Sam Evans is also on the bill. The music kicks off at 10 p.m.

Word from The Continental Club is that this is Dianne‘s birthday show, put together with a lot of love. Wish her a Happy Birthday while you’re there soaking in the great music. Recommended.
