Our Lady J is known for her visionary gospel styling, powerhouse pianist skills and unforgettable live shows. Along with the Train-To-Kill Gospel Choir, she has been delivering a new testament of post-religious gospel music to sold out crowds at NYC’s Joe’s Pub, The Zipper Factory & Ars Nova Theatre, as well venues all over the world, including London’s prestigious South Bank Centre & Soho Theatre, Berlin’s Bar Jeder Vernunft, and Ireland’s Electric Picnic Festival. Other cities toured include Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Washington DC, Seattle, London, Manchester, Montreal, Warsaw & Dublin. Recently, OUT Magazine named her as one of the “Out 100,” a list of people who have shaped LGBT culture.
For her upcoming album, “The Gospel Electric,” Our Lady J is blasting her classical and gospel roots into the future; fusing electro/pop with the unorthodox uplifting soul-shaking sound she’s been known for. Our Lady J’s stage shows include orchestration and choral arrangements that are fully appreciated by anyone from the average listener to those with the most sophisticated musical ear. Her popularity provided the necessity to put the choir and the orchestra in her pocket, electrify them in the studio, and reproduce the unforgettable experience for a worldwide audience.
Our Lady J’s performance, musical direction & accompaniment credits include collaborations with NYC’s most colorful talents (Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Harry, Lady Gaga, The Scissor Sisters, Antony Hegarty & Justin Bond) in hot spots including Birdland, The Box, Carnegie Hall, CBGB’s, Feinstein’s at the Regency, Highline Ballroom, Joe’s Pub, The Kitchen, Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall and The Town Hall. As a classical pianist, she has work with American Ballet Theatre, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, and the Mark Morris Dance Group, where she was a featured performer in the MMDG Music Ensemble.
