“She could move a listener to tears.”—NPR

Mavis Staples is living, breathing history. The alchemist of American music has continuously weaved herself into the very fabric of gospel, soul, folk, pop, R&B, blues, rock, and hip hop over the last 60 years. With the release of her new album, Livin’ on a High Note, she is only gaining momentum. Since her first recording at age 13 in 1954, Staples has learned from, worked with, and schooled countless legends. She helped create the Delta-inflected gospel sound in the 1950s with her father, Pops, and her brother and sisters as The Staple Singers. She was an eminent voice to the freedom songs of the Civil Rights era and rose to pop radio stardom during the Stax era with hits I’ll Take You There and Respect Yourself. She’s served as muse to both Bob Dylan and Prince at the peak of their careers and earned a Grammy for her partnership with fellow Chicagoan Jeff Tweedy. The one constant throughout Staples’ career is her singular voice. She has embraced her evolution, absorbing new sounds and ideas to sustain her message of hope and positivity to new listeners, song after song, show after show.
