Biography

Respecting, revisiting and occasionally re-envisioning the BLUES, Lady Blue is dedicated to adding doses of sophistication and spirituality to an often misunderstood, and under-appreciated, art form. Soulful vocals by Tina plus sterling instrumental support from the Gentlemen equals what our fans describe as "pure sonic delight!" The band continuously wells inspiration and wisdom from such heroes as the 3 Kings of the blues (BB, Albert, and Freddie), to Fleetwood Mac (all members in all eras), from The Allman Brothers Band to Janis Joplin and Big Brother. From every guitar legend to every bold-voiced, bold-hearted diva; from every genre and every generation. And though the ship leaves the Delta, it always sails the mighty River Blue, looking for the next port to live life and celebrate all the blues this world is blessed with.

Lyrics

The Meaning Of Grace

Written By: Tina Haase Findlay

You've been hurt, and you can't seem to lay your burdens down

You've been bad, and you can't move beneath what has you bound

Surrounded by the broken dreams of what you long to be You've convinced yourself you don't deserve to be set free

But grace means that all is well, so get up now from where you fell

Grace means that even though you made a mess, you will still grow

Grace means that you receive a chance to choose what you believe

Grace means that you will rise above the ocean of petty lies
Amazing grace, it sounds so sweet, lifts you back up on your feet
If you're sick and tired of your wicked ways, its time for you to give yourself grace

I've been hurt, and I can't seem to lay my burdens down

I've been bad, and I can't move beneath what has me bound

Surrounded by the broken dreams of what I long to be

I've convinced myself I don't deserve to be set free

But grace means that all is well, I'm gonna get up now from where I fell

Grace means that even though I made a mess, I will still grow

Grace means that I receive a chance to choose what I believe

Grace means that I will rise above the ocean of petty lies

Amazing grace, it sounds so sweet, lifts me back up on my feet
I'm sick and tired of my wicked ways, it's time for me to give myself grace

I Am The Blues

Written By: Tina Haase Findlay

When the day brings a melancholy sky, when the dream fades away into a lie; I'll bring you home, I'll see you through, I am the blues

When the rain makes your sunshine disappear, when the strain keeps you captured by your fear; I'll bring you home, I'll see you through, I am the blues

I am the song of the hardworking people of this land
I know you feel the pain, I know you understand
I am the song of the hard life made easier by grace
I know you hear my voice, I know you see my face

When the dark beats the light into the ground, when the devil kicks your spirit up and down; I'll bring you home, I'll see you through, I am the blues

When the night leaves you bitter and confused, when the fight leaves you broken and misused; I'll bring you home, I'll see you through, I am the blues

I am the blues, hear my cry and hear my call, and I will always be nearby to break your fall
I'll bring you home, I'll see you through, I'll bring you home, I'll see you through I'll bring you home, and I will see you through, I am the blues

Nothin' But The Blues

Written By: Tina Haase Findlay and Brandon Findlay

Yesterday I went back to my old stompin' ground, The island of blues where we just couldn't wait to get down, But it was not the right season, not the right sight, and not the right sound

Yesterday I returned to the scene of the crime, The island of blues where we made sweet rhythm and rhyme,
But it was not the reason, not the right place, and not the right time

You love me, you love me not, you said, but you won't leave my heart or my head, Cause this is the blues, the whole blues, and nothin' but the blues. I love you, I love you not, I said, but I won't leave your heart or your head, Cause this is the blues, the whole blues, and nothin' but the blues
