SAFFIRE THE UPPITY BLUES WOMEN are the worlds most popular acoustic blues band, fusing a contemporary edge to the independent spirit and raucous, proto-feminist music of legends like Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey. Since their Alligator debut in 1990, they've built a loyal, diverse following that includes fans of women's and alternative lifestyle music, as well as blues, folk and acoustic. Their dedicated fan base has helped place their releases among Alligators Top 50 best-selling titles. HAVIN THE LAST WORD is their first new studio release in eight years and will be accompanied by a three-month nationwide tour that brings their sassy, bawdy live show to audiences across the U.S. HAVIN THE LAST WORD finds Saffire just as uppity as ever, with their most infectious collection yet of passionate, funny, rollickingly soulful blues. With poignant tales of romance won and lost, sidesplitting odes to the female body and stirring affirmations of life, the ladies prove themselves modern day equals of the legends that inspired them.
