"Quite frankly , Lady Bianca is the artist most suited to carry on the vocal and piano legacy of Ms. Aretha Franklin!"
Andre Jonson, Warner Bros Recording Artist & Producer

Raised by a father who taught her Texas Blues piano as a child, Bianca's formal training began at age nine with the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Her exceptional talent garnered her a full four year scholarship and she went on to study music theory, composition, and received her operatic vocal and piano training. Bianca's first paying gig was at the age of seventeen with Quinn Harris & The Masterminds and it was Harris who bestowed the title of Lady on Bianca as she was “so pure and conservative”.

With her partner, Stanley Lippitt, she has amassed a catalog of over 300 songs, and has produced, arranged and recorded 9 albums, including her recent release, “Lady Bianca Sings: Hold on a Little While Longer and Gonna Have A Mighty Good Time (2020), via her own label, Magic-O Records - Home of the Mighty Oakland Sound.
