If All I Was Was Black

Mavis Staples

The majestic Mavis Staples is back.

The new album is a perfect message for our time and is by far Mavis' best work to date.

Featured on 3 top tracks of 2017: Arcade Fire (I Give You Power), Gorillaz & Pusha T (Let Me Out) and Benjamin Booker (Witness)

Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Kennedy Center Honoree, National Heritage Fellowship Award recipient- to name a few of her honours

“Mavis has done it all and worked with just about everybody from Bob Dylan to Prince to Jeff Tweedy… She still is singing for justice and equality and influencing a new generation of musicians and fans” - President Barack Obama

“Rather than protest the state of the world, Staples is toasting human endurance - hers as well as ours” - Pitchfork
