“Lady LeShurr made her American debut by turning a room in the swank Driskill Hotel into a raucous reggae dancehall”Esquire

“Real reggae had its own showcase at SXSW. British Underground excel at shining a spotlight on genres and scenes, and with the delectable Ras Kwame hosting, brought Natty, Lady Leshurr and Little Roy together to show a bit of the current crop, the roots of it all, and some of where it’s going.”Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1 “You could hear it on mainstream radio in 1978, courtesy of The Police, and if you’re in Britain, you can hear it on the airwaves today, in the music of Birmingham-born MC Lady Leshurr: reggae’s influence on British music.”Baz Dresinger, All Things Considered Bass Culture Documentary, NPR “Lady Leshurr delivered a breakthrough performance in the Bass Culture showcase that, according to The Times critic Will Hodgkinson, ‘got hardened, middle-aged record industry execs jumping up and down with their hands in the air’. Also in attendance was rap royalty in the shape of Jay Z.”Joe Clay, Saturday Review, The Times
