Andra Day begins her This Song conversation by extolling the virtues of Billie Holiday’s “Strange Fruit” and soon ventures into why Ms. Holiday is the Queen Of Jazz and how her relationship with God has been her creative well-spring.
Then Nashville-based singer-songwriter Adia Victoria talks of how her journey from a stifling small-town life to a life in the arts was inspired by Fiona Apple and , in particular, her song “Fast As You Can.”
