At the moment I believe the only other recording of Black Audience publicly available is a live track from the Entry in their myspace player. Check this out!

"Black Audience opened the attack with a salvo of boogie, blues and AAAAR & B. While the band backed her up on banjo, calimba and bodhran, lead singer Jayanthi Kyle made me spine shiver with her haunting renditions of old blues and gospel numbers." (Jon Behm,

"They call themselves Black Audience because, as Robin says, "When the lights are in your eyes, every audience is black."" (Steve Marsh)

Long time fan of Black Audience here. Everything above comes from my original post on The Traders' Den in 2008. I would also like to add that Pi was a great establishment. Sure I was only there a few times but I wish it could have been saved but not everything in life is able to be saved. The main reason of the recirculation of this recording is to let you know that Black Audience has another residency at The Red Stag Supper Club in Northeast Minneapolis every Thursday night this month. We've made it to April 2010 everybody.

This show was with Alixa and Naima of Climbing Poetree and Black Blondie.

Show flier coming...need to get to The Triple Rock...
