From the moment she sets free a first soulful note, audiences know what has made Twyla one of Lansing’s most loved vocalists since 2002. She has sung with numerous Blues greats, including Larry McCray and Freddie Cunningham. In 2012 she and Mike Eyia were duet winners of Capital Area Blues Society’s “Blues Brawl,” and performed at Old Town BluesFest . She is currently lead singer of The Hoopties, who in 2011 competed in the Memphis International Blues Challenge. In addition to session recording, Twyla collaborates in a ‘Women of the Blues Review’ with BMA winner Sharrie Williams, Detroit blues princess Thornetta Davis, and BMA nominee Kathleen Murray.
