Gina Sicilia is a singer from The Philadelphia area of Pennsylvania. I had the opportunity to give her a call and talk about her music and her career. Gina graduated from Temple University with a degree in journalism, but music was always her passion. While in school she started going to local blues jams at Warmdaddy's in Philadelphia. It was there that she met some musicians that had a big impact on her musical direction. Within a month of releasing her first self produced album she was picked up by a label that gave her worldwide distribution opportunities. She has been nominated for several awards and all of her albums are met with positive reviews. Gina told me about her recent performance at Buddy Guy's Legends in Chicago. We shared our mutual admiration of Buddy Guy and talked through her involvement with various forms of social media. Gina will be releasing a Christmas single on 11/16/11 called "Shine Down On Us". It is an online exclusive, and 100% of the proceeds will benefit the St. Jude' Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. Please check it out, and enjoy the interview!
