In Focus: Teena Marie

Los Angeles, 09.07.21

Focus on Teena Marie

California born singer Teena Marie was an early protege of funk legend Rick James. One of the few white artists who regularly found success on US R&B charts in the 1980s, her race was ambiguous at the beginning of her career, with her image left off of debut album - “I still have people coming up to me 26 years later and looking at me and all of a sudden going, ‘I didn’t know you were white!", Marie said in an interview in 2006.

This In Focus is an hour long ride through the soul, funk & R&B of Teena Marie, mixed by LDLDN This
