The Lounge: Vaughnette Bigford launches first album

Vaughnette Bigford has been steadily making her name on the jazz circuit performing at events such as Jazz on the Greens and numerous shows at Kaiso Blues Cafe.

The La Brea songbird, however, is more than just a jazz singer and her new album proves this. 

Entitled "Born to Shine", the album features Bigford's vocals on a number of calypsoes which she uniquely repurposes.

Bigford sat down in The Lounge to tell us more about the album and where next we can catch her live.
