Soul Sister

Jazz Host

Soul Sister is an internationally known, veteran DJ artist whose broadcast programs and live performances feature only the music she loves: the 1970s to mid-’80s soulful rarities in R&B, funk, disco, jazz, and more from her personal collection of over 10,000 vinyl records.

A native of New Orleans, Soul Sister has hosted Soul Power on WWOZ FM New Orleans for more than 25 years, and has recently hosted internationally aired radio programs on Sonos Radio and Worldwide FM.

As a performance DJ, she has played with artists ranging from Questlove and George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic to Maceo Parker and Tower of Power. She is the first DJ to win New Orleans' prestigious Big Easy Entertainment Award for "Best DJ."

Soul Sister is equally dedicated to educating about music, both as a writer/researcher and as a university lecturer. Check out her website here.
