Blues was probably the first music I heard when I was born. As I grew up, I also loved Soul music. Al Green is still my favorite singer. My mother used to tell me, 'Don't you bring another Al Green record in this house. I would wear the grooves off them.

Born in 1957, Deitra Farr first heard live blues on Chicago's legendary Maxwell Street, where her father used to take her as a little girl to be immersed in what was to be the heyday of Blues, Doo Wop, Gospel and Rock & Roll.

Six decades later Deitra received the prestigious 2017 Jus' Blues Queen of The Blues Award in Tunica Mississippi.

Prior to that, there is a swag of accolades, not least on October 4, 2015 Deitra when was inducted into the Chicago Blues Hall of Fame as a Legendary Blues Artist.

Deitra Farr is considered one of Chicago's top vocalists, according to Living Blues Magazine (May 1997). Fiery, energetic, and soul-stirring describes this woman, who has over the years been nominated for Traditional Female Blues artist of the year by the W.C. Handy Awards, Female Blues Artist of the year by the Living Blues Critics' Awards, the British Blues Connection Awards, and the Les Trophees France Blues awards.

This Chicago native began her career in 1975, singing with local soul bands, before starting her blues career in the early 1980's. In 1983, Deitra began her blues career working at the major Chicago blues clubs, such as The Kingston Mines, The Wise Fool's Pub and Blue Chicago. She also toured the US and Canada with the Sam Lay Blues Band.
From 1993 to 1996, Deitra was the lead singer with Mississippi Heat, recording two CD's with this all-star group.
