Christian John Wikane, music journalist and liner notes writer extraordinaire (he wrote the liner notes to the latest CHIC compilation), has interviewed our CHIC Lady Alfa Anderson (now former member of CHIC). The interview was published 2 days ago on the site popmatters.com:
"I began to really appreciate the nuances of the CHIC vocal style, this singing that’s percussive but also legato, that has these crescendos and decrescendos. It’s a specific vocal technique that really works with that whole rhythm section. I understand it even better now. CHIC’s style was a blending of pop and R&B."
