Charlie Faye. Betty Soo. Akina Adderley. Three local vocalists with their own individual talents, bound together by a mutual love of ’60s pop. Faye’s been here for almost a full decade but only in the past couple years has she recruited the help of Soo and Adderley to form their ode to retro “girl groups”, Charlie Faye & The Fayettes.
The Fayettes released their debut self-titled LP in 2016 and today they unfurl the beginning of their next chapter. Their brand new single goes even further into the realm of retro pop, so much that they give The Ronettes a run for their money! You can enjoy the single release show this Thursday at Antone’s but until then, here’s a buoyant blend of familiar and new from Charlie Faye & The Fayettes, “I Don’t Need No Baby”!
