This is an introduction, but the the fact is, you’ve probably heard Courtney Santana sing before. Many times. Take some wisdom from 20 Feet From Stardom and know this: You never know the fire behind the scenes. And now it’s time for the center stage.
Santana’s 35-year career spans across the entertainment industry, from live music to theater to dance. She’s a featured singer on more than 28 LPs and has performed with Hootie and The Blowfish, Robert Randolph, Jessie Dayton, Patrice Pike, Wendy Colonna, Nakia, Shinyribs…the list continues to grow. In addition to touring the globe with bands and as a solo artist, Santana has performed in musicals such as Dreamgirls, RENT and Porgy and Bess.
Santana, a member of Sonic Guild‘s Class of 2023-2024 artist nominees, is ready to release her debut solo album Epiphanies of A Butterfly next year. And before heading out to the She Rises Festival in Taos, NM at the end of this month, you can see her perform at 9:30 p.m. tonight, Tuesday Aug. 29, at C-Boy’s Heart and Soul on S. Congress. Stick around for Grooveline Horns at 10:45 p.m.
