Legally Blynd is easily the tightest, most creative soul-blues band performing today. Great songs rooted in the blues and gospel quartet traditions, written by and featuring the deeply soulful lead vocals of John "Jubu" Smith, a double whammy of awesome guitar work by Jubu and Errol Cooney, and a rhythm section made up of some of the most accomplished players in the business make for a truly world-class team. --Lee Hildebrand, Veteran Contributor to the San Francisco Chronicle and Living Blues.
Legally Blynd consistently produces music that pushes the boundaries of what music should be. Combining soul, gospel, and blues influences, Legally Blynd brings a clearly differentiated sound to a diverse group of audiences everywhere. The all-star band members have built careers for top billing artists such as Janet Jackson, Rihanna, Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake, Destiny’s Child, Raphael Saadiq, Jill Scott, Alicia Keys, Luther Vandross, Sheila E., Frankie Beverly & Maze, Whitney Houston, John Legend, Chrisette Michele, and numerous more. Aptly named "Legally Blynd," the band has serious goals as artists to reach, inspire and bring people of all demographics together, through the love of their music.
"We want to change what's happened to music and the music industry game," says lead singer, Jubu Smith. "We write songs that don't conform to traditional categories, but aim to collectively bring our communities together, like some of the greats from our past."
In March 2015, Legally Blynd released their much anticipated album "You." LISTEN NOW
